The road less travelled

The world can feel pretty small these days. Information bounces around at the speed of light, and journeys that once lasted several months can be completed in the time it takes to pop to the cinema and watch the latest Hollywood hit. We’ll forgive you then, for thinking that the age of “real” adventure is behind us. But, happily, you’d be wrong. Spin the globe and you’ll see the places we’re talking about; vast expanses without a road or a town; exotic names of the tongue-twister variety; rivers, mountains and valleys rarely seen by human eyes. That’s exactly where we headed on our Expeditions. Natural Selection’s Expeditions are dedicated to exploring these seldom-explored corners of our planet, and to finding fresh ways of discovering more familiar ones. Our Expeditions aren’t simply about getting off the beaten track – that’s the easy part. We want to connect with these places; to share a cup of tea with the local chieftain, and to seek out species so rare that they seem mythical. We know, it’s a tall order, and that’s why our Expeditions are led by some of the world’s foremost naturalist guides and experts. And, more often than not, one of the founders of Natural Selection will join the fun as well.
