LUNGI MCHUNU

South African Sailor, Polar Explorer and Climate Change Activist

African, living in Johannesburg

What started out as a dare has led her to endless possibilities and to her personal legend.

Lungi Mchunu is a Sailor, Polar Explorer and Climate Change Activist known to many as the first African female to sail to the Arctic. She has battled fear, pushed past her limiting beliefs and social conditioning, hitched a ride to the ends of the earth, came face to face with death yet she’s still filled with love, enthusiasm and determination to continue her climate change advocacy and highlighting the importance of the polar regions to the rest of the planet. She’s currently working towards completing her Pole to Pole ambitions with her training commencing with the Arctic Circle trail in Greenland during the peak of winter in 2021 and sailing around the world solo in the next edition of the Vendee Globe.
