Explorers Connect – ‘Adventure Shared: Explorers Connect is on a mission to make adventure more accessible’ – feature the River Gambia Expedition 2012

Explorers Connect ‘Built by adventurers, for adventurers…’

We were extremely flattered to hear from Explorers Connect to say that they wanted to make our River Gambia Expedition 2012 – 1000km source to sea African odyssey ‘Adventurer of the Week’ on their site.

 Adventure Shared

Explorers Connect is on a mission to make adventure more accessible

‘Founded by Belinda Kirk who’s worked in the adventure industry most of her life: “I was always being asked by friends how they could join an adventure or work in the industry. It seemed that many wanted more adventure in their lives but didn’t know where to start. There was nothing more satisfying than being able to help others realise their adventurous dreams but I realised that I could only help a few people at a time; what was needed was a central place where adventure seekers and adventure professionals could meet to share advice and opportunities“.’

Explorers Connect features all things adventure and exploration – from Kite Surfing in Mozambique and South Africa; Trekking the Great Himalaya; Paragliding in Tajikistan; Racing in the South Pole; to canoeing and trekking over a 1000km on and alongside the River Gambia! (I guess that’ll be us then)…and it goes on.

You can write an article, ask a question, exchange some kit in the ‘Resource & Kit’ section:
