Off The Beaten Track

This is truly a unique adventure in the company of one of the two greatest living British explorers (according to Daily Telegraph), Benedict Allen.

Adventurer, author, broadcaster and motivational speaker, Benedict Allen has extensive knowledge of the Sepik River region in Papua New Guinea, having been inducted into one of its tribes in a grueling male ritual rite called “man strong as crocodile” and travelled its many tributaries.

During this extraordinary journey Benedict will regale you with tales of his many exploits in PNG, Namibia, Indonesia and Central Asia, traversing vast distances solo or with a few camels, living off the land and encountering many dangers and gaining huge insights.

Join Benedict and the group’s various local guides for what is sure to be a trip of a life time (and that is no cliche when applied to this tour).
