Ethiopia is simply a gem. Home to one of the oldest Christian civilisations in the world, it has an archaeological pedigree to match any and a cultural and natural diversity that is unmatched. From a plateau, some 3,000 metres above sea level, to depressions of 120 metres below, its vast landscapes stretch out before you, across vistas that shelter ancient frescoes and wild baboons, the legendary palaces of the Queen of Sheba and the lost Ark of the Covenant. It boasts Africa’s largest continuous mountain range, largest cave, an active volcano and more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country in Africa.


Join journalist and novelist, Sean Thomas, and Wild Frontiers experts, Jonny Bealby & Marc Leaderman to learn more about this fascinating land as we explore its diverse regions from the rugged peaks of the Simien Mountains in the historic north, where rock-hewn churches and castles have stood the test of time; to the Danakil Depression, one of the lowest, hottest and harshest environments on earth; and the lush valleys of the tribal Omo region in the deep south.


Journalist & Novelist, Sean Thomas
Sean Thomas is a journalist and novelist. Born in Devon, educated at University College London, he has written on art, politics, and history for many newspapers and magazines. He now specialises in travel for the Times and Sunday Times and wearing this hat, travelled into Ethiopia’s Danakil Depression with Wild Frontiers. On the evening, he will recall his adventure across the moon-like landscapes in the path of salt caravans to the rim of Erta Ale Volcano.

Wild Frontiers Founder & MD, Jonny Bealby
Jonny will take you on a journey of Ethiopia’s historical north, a region he visited for the first time while riding his motorbike around Africa in the early 90s. Wild Frontiers has a long history with Ethiopia being the third country we ran group tours to 16 years ago. Jonny has revisited this fascinating country many times and holds Ethiopia and its people close to his heart. Hear more about our style of travel in Ethiopia.

Wild Frontiers Director of Operations, Marc Leaderman
Marc’s Ethiopia expertise covers north to south and east to west having led numerous group tours during his days on the road, along with running logistics and recce-ing and designing new itineraries. For this event he will concentrate on the south of the country and the lush Omo Valley. Whilst a fascinating region and home to many ethnic groups - from the Mursi, renowned for their lip-plates to the Hamer people famous for their bull jumping coming of age ceremony –we have had to tread carefully while developing tours through a very sensitive part of the world.


When: Wednesday, 19 September 2018
Where: The Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London W2 1QJ
Time: 6:30pm for 7pm presentation
Tickets: £12 (including a glass of wine, beer or soft drink & a donation to the Wild Frontiers Foundation)

Since the early explorers, the polar regions have intrigued and wowed us with their pristine, frozen landscapes and the wonderful wildlife that lives amongst them.


Join biologist & polar expedition leader John Kernan, and Wild Frontiers Arctic specialist Nathan Drane, as we explore some of the last true wildernesses left on earth. From cruising Antarctic waters by expedition ship to dog sledding and snow shoeing in the Arctic Circle, the pair will delve into the snow and ice in what promises to be a fun and informative evening of adventure travel.

Guest Speaker - Biologist & Antarctic Expedition Leader, John Kernan

With 24 years’ experience onboard expedition ships and having recently completed his 150th voyage to Antarctica, there are few expedition leaders with as much knowledge and passion for the ‘Great White Continent’ as John Kernan.

Trained as a biologist, John found his calling in the expedition cruise industry as a lecturer, naturalist, Zodiac driver and expedition leader. He has led trips to all seven continents and over one hundred countries, with a keen focus on the polar and tropical regions. During the next austral summer, John will again make his way deep south to Antarctica, with the same anticipation and excitement for his 151st trip as his first.

Guest Speaker - Wild Frontiers Arctic Specialist, Nathan Drane

Hear from Nathan on Wild Frontiers’ style of travel and his own experiences from mushing a team of huskies through the alpine forests of Lapland to exploring the frozen refuge of polar bears on the Svalbard archipelago in the High Arctic.

With the dazzling colours of the Northern Lights, the chance to see polar bears in their natural habitat, sweeping frozen panoramas that provide stunning backdrops to snowmobile and dog sled excursions, and unique accommodation from ice hotels to aurora domes, the Scandinavian Arctic offers truly exhilarating adventures.

For more than a thousand years the caravan routes of the ancient Tea Horse Road stretched across the mountainous landscapes of southwestern China and Tibet, carrying people, tea and commerce across hundreds of miles of some of the most dangerous terrain on earth. Once, rivalling the Silk Road as one of the greatest trading highways in the world, today its meandering trails are all but forgotten.

Join Wild Frontiers and guest speakers, China Expert Nic Linton and Travel Writer Gill Charlton, as we not only explore this ancient trade route, but also discover the wonders of China’s other less travelled landscapes of giant gorges, endless rice terraces and timeless karst hills, home to remote hill tribes still steeped in traditions that have endured since the Yuan and Ming dynasties.

China Travel Expert, Nic Linton

Nic first ventured into China in the late 1990s when, after finishing university, he embarked on an epic cycle ride from Australia back to the UK. The lone adventure took him across the Australian outback, through South East Asian jungles to the Himalaya and vast Central Asian deserts beyond. Two years, and 25,000 miles later, he peddled off the Dover ferry and into a lifelong love for Asia.

It wasn’t long before Nic was back in China leading trips, and in September 2001 after taking a group over the Khyber Pass into Afghanistan, he met Chinese guide Zhang Mei on a Beijing bus and decided to stay. For the next few years he learnt Chinese and worked for some of the most exclusive tour companies in Asia, helping to set up bespoke events and run private jet tours. He personally guided over 100 tours throughout China, Many for high profile figures such as Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, who he accompanied for his two-week stay during the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

For the past 10 years Nic has researched and set up unique routes across China and has now teamed up with Wild Frontiers to help develop a new portfolio of group tours.

Travel Writer, Gill Charlton

Gill has written on travel for the Daily Telegraph for 30 years. One of her earliest trips was backpacking around China for six weeks in 1986. She has returned many times since, exploring some of China’s remote corners, both as a journalist and a tour leader.
