Unveiling Pakistan: with Sumayya Usmani and Peter Oborne - SOLD OUT!

Pakistan celebrates its 70th birthday this year and we firmly believe it is one of the most exciting destinations out there.

Although often in the news for all the wrong reasons, Pakistan is in fact an adventure traveller’s dream destination. With a fascinating history dating back to the Indus civilisation of the fourth millennia BC, a warm, varied and hugely hospitable population, a fast improving infrastructure and the most impressive mountain landscapes anywhere on earth, it is a country that is sure to impress even the most experienced traveller.

Join WF MD Jonny Bealby, food writer and author Sumayya Usmani and journalist and broadcaster Peter Oborne as we delve behind the misconceptions of this wonderful country.

Born and raised in Karachi Sumayya is recognised by BBC Good Food as the UK’s ‘go-to’ expert for Pakistani cuisine. She is passionate about Pakistan’s rich culinary heritage and seeks to share its distinct flavours along with the influence of its culture and heritage. Her first memoir cookbook on Pakistani cuisine ‘Summers under the Tamarind Tree’ was published in 2016. Peter is a true lover of Pakistan and has just returned from his third quirky cricket tour of the country. He wrote ‘Wounded Tiger: A History of Pakistan Cricket’, is associated editor at The Spectator and was the chief political commentator of the Daily Telegraph.

We will shortly be announcing a new culinary tour of Pakistan, hosted by Sumayya – details of which will be exclusively launched at this event.

Where: The Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London, W2 1QJ
Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm

Travelling on the Silk Road: with Emma Thomson

With a number of high profile Silk Road books on every history lover’s bedside table right now and Wild Frontiers’ own 47-day epic adventure across six countries making its dazzling debut last summer, Central Asia and the Old Silk Road is more than just back on the map.

Discover the lure and legends of this ancient trading route as travel writer Emma Thomson (who knows the region well having travelled on our Great Silk Road Adventure in 2016) and our very own Jonny Bealby take you on a journey into the heart of Central Asia.

Magnificent cities such as Bukhara and Samarkand still exude a timeless aura of wonder and tradition, their gradual restoration to former glory instilling in them a captivating charm that harks back to the merchant caravans of old. For nature lovers the mountains and glaciers, deserts and forests provide a bountiful abundance of fauna and flora, whilst those looking for a more cultural experience will find themselves surrounded by customs and traditions that have changed little over the intervening centuries. Remote and at times harsh, Central Asia is always magnificent and it provides an ideal destination for those looking for something out of the ordinary.

When: Wednesday 1 November 2017
Where: The Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London, W2 1QJ
Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm
Tickets: £10 including a drink. Buy tickets here.

Into Japan: with Richard Dunwoody

Japan is a country where history and tradition have become intertwined with the technical advances of the modern age. From the beautiful landscapes of Hakone National Park to the towering glass monuments of Tokyo, Japan’s traditions and beliefs can sometimes appear as mysterious as they are mesmerising.

Japan has lured untold numbers of adventurers since Marco Polo first introduced it to the world back in the 13th century as "Zipangu - the Land of Gold".

We’re delighted to be launching both group tours and tailor-made holidays to Japan from 2017. Joining our Head of Group Tours Marc Leaderman and Asia specialist Nathan Drane will be WF tour leader and former champion jockey Richard Dunwoody, who walked the length of Japan earlier this year – an incredible feat lasting just over three months and giving him great insight into the country’s cultural variety and colourful and inspiring natural attractions, not to mention the hospitality of its people.

When: Wednesday 29 November 2017
Where: The Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London, W2 1QJ
Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm
Tickets: £10 including a drink. Buy tickets here.
