Kenya Quest Expedition - January 2018

Recently back from expedition in Colombia Amazonas delivering an ambulance boat, John Blashford-Snell is already looking forward to his next expedition - the Kenya Quest Expedition in January 2018. He is currently recruiting doctors, dentists, nurses, biologists, builders, and those who love Africa to join the team. The first stage will be carrying out conservation work and wildlife studies, on horseback for those who ride, on the slopes of Mount Kenya, before moving to the Laikipia region, north of Nanyuki, to do more wildlife studies of the larger mammals and botany.
