It’s been a fantastic start to the New Year, Sam was made a member of the Explorers Club, and we were also nominated the best extreme adventure provider at the World Travel Awards for the third year running. So the yearly battle between Sam and Bear Grylls’ PR machine has begun again, needless to say who will win the third year in a row. Enjoy the dancing girls and champagne Bear.
We were also nominated for two awards at the National Adventure Awards, for leadership and best service provider. We’ll find out in March if we have won.
Most importantly we won the much coveted Shackleton Award for the best cadet expedition of 2014, in the footsteps of Lawrence from Wadi Rum to Mudarrawa in Jordan.
We are getting revved up for the Namib treks and rock art expeditions this summer, Operation Hawk is on the back burner due to the security situation in the Western Desert, as are operations in the Sinai.
