We wanted to share this short clip from Great Plains Conservation, which provides a wonderful insight into their Rhinos Without Borders project and the efforts being made to protect this severely endangered species from poaching.
The clips details a recent effort to airlift ten rhino from South Africa to the safety of the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
How you can sign up, train and prepare for a North Pole expedition?
We invite you to come to the prestigious Royal Geographical Society for an information presentation by celebrated polar guide Alan Chambers MBE.
Alan is a polar adventurer who received the MBE for ‘exceptional leadership in extreme adversity’ when he led the first successful unsupported British Geographic North Pole expedition, walking 672 nautical miles in temperatures as low as -65°C dragging a sledge the weight of a baby elephant. In preparation for his expedition Alan lived with a family of Inuits, indigenous to the Arctic for between 1 and 2 months every year for 5 years.
Alan has since led top business leaders & chief executives to the North Pole in virtually every North Pole season since 2002. The North Pole challenge helped them explore and reflect on their own leadership capabilities.
Jeremy Gane FRGS, and also a director of Charity Challenge, has been researching and developing North Pole expeditions with Alan and Simon Albert of Charity Challenge for the last five years. Gane and Marshall has teamed up with Charity Challenge to offer these exclusive North Pole expeditions, guided by Alan Chambers.
The Information Day will take place on Friday 19th June 2015 from 2 to 4:30pm in the Lowther Room at the Royal Geographic Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR. We have arranged for the main presentation to run from 14:30-15:15. Tea and coffee will be served from 14:00.

I remember my adventure holiday in Oman very fondly. In brief I would describe Oman as a peaceful, unspoilt, friendly, intriguing holiday destination – with plenty of sunshine and a good variety of culture, wildlife and landscapes to discover. I would highly recommend going there now, while it is still largely undiscovered. (Ssssh don’t tell everyone!) Continue reading Adventure Holiday in Oman→
In the past month we’ve been lucky enough to receive two wonderful photo journals from clients who recently travelled with us to Tanzania. We thought we would share them with you.
Wild camping in the Serengeti
Josephine travelled to North Tanzania with her family and friends on one of our very special light mobile safaris. She was kind enough to share with us this wonderful account of her trip, full of her stunning photographs (that’s her cheetah at the top of the page!)
Solo adventure in remote Ruaha and the Selous
Janet explored the opposite end of Tanzania, visiting the southern parks of Selous and Ruaha while her husband climbed Kilimanjaro. Her account really highlights what makes Tanzania’s comparatively little-visited southern parks so special!
Many thanks to Janet and Josephine for their wonderful accounts and photos!
