It was Pakistan, and in particular the country’s northwest frontier, that witnessed the birth of Wild Frontiers back in the late 1990s. Since then it has become something of our spiritual home. Join us for a celebration of this fascinating country as we hear from award-winning author and historian William Dalrmyple, one of the leading experts on the history of the Subcontinent. We’ll also be hearing about the mouthwatering food of Pakistan from culinary expert Sumayya Usmani whilst Wild Frontiers Founder & MD Jonny Bealby will take us through some of the wonderful experiences that a visit to Pakistan rewards the adventurous traveller with. There will also be a display of photographs, taken during his recent travels along the spectacular Karakorman Highway by actor and passionate photographer, Pasha Bocarie.
Taking place at the Pakistan High Commission in London’s Knightsbridge, the evening will reveal one of travel’s best kept secrets, from its spectacular scenery to its rich history, fascinating culture and influential cuisine.

Wild Frontiers MD & Founder, Jonny Bealby- Jonny will be speaking about his love for Pakistan, having first set foot in the country over 25 years ago. His travel company Wild Frontiers started from an idea, hatched while travelling high in the mountains of the Hindu Kush, of bringing others to similarly amazing locations to show them the staggering scenery, visit interesting towns and meet the fascinating people that live among them. With strong bonds to Pakistan, Jonny returns regularly to lead trips and visit friends.
Author & Historian, William Dalrymple - Known for his entertaining travel writing and sweeping histories, William will be touching on his recent travels in Pakistan with his family, and sharing details of his latest book ‘Koh-i-Noor: The History of the World's Most Infamous Diamond’ – recounting the precious stone’s history and path as it changed hands between modern-day India, Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan, before being ceded to Queen Victoria.
Culinary Expert & Author, Sumayya Usmani - Sumayya is a food writer and cookery teacher who grew up in Pakistan. The author of two cookbooks: Summers Under The Tamarind Tree and Mountain Berries and Dessert Spice, Sumayya will share the flavours of her homeland, highlighting Pakistani food as a distinct cuisine which she feels is best described as a confluence of tastes of the whole of South Asia.
Actor & Photographer, Pasha Bocarie - London actor and musician, Pasha Bocarie, perhaps best known as series regular 'Rakesh Kotecha' in Emmerdale on ITV, will also be joining us for the evening to talk about his recent travels in Pakistan. Along with both stage and screen acting (including prime-time television dramas Babylon, Casualty, Spooks, Silent Witness and Law & Order), Pasha is also a passionate photographer and his stunning images taken along the Karakoram Highway will be on display.

An Evening of Adventure with Wild Frontiers
Watch the video from the Royal Geographical Society in London as broadcaster Kate Humble, adventurer Richard Dunwoody and explorer Benedict Allen talk about their latest adventures in the Congo, Japan and Papua New Guinea. Raising money for the Wild Frontiers Foundation the evening was a great success providing the funds for around 250 local Congolese to go and see the gorillas that live in the Kahuzi Biega National Park.
