Expedition World


Erta Ale volcano lava lake in northeast Ethiopia, in the heart of the Danakil desert.

For a different way back from Africa to the UK, why not drive across Tibet? Doing just this in our 28-year-old Land Rover was one of our most exciting adventures yet! See our new autobiography (above, in black&white, colour and Kindle) and the latest edition of our  Bradt guide Africa Overland

Expedition World is a specialist company dedicated to travel and travellers, especially in mountains and deserts. Our most recent project is the Himalayan Travel Guides series of Nepalese trekking guidebooks, published by Himalayan Map House in Kathmandu, and also available on Amazon and Kindle. Titles published so far include: ManasluDolpo, GaneshEverest, Langtang, RolwalingMustang and Nepal Himalaya, Kanchenjunga, Makalu and Kanchi's Tale, and the barely-known areas of West Nepal and Dhaulagiri. For details of our Annapurna trekking guidebook, published by Cicerone, see Annapurna.

With such a diverse world, there is no limit to the places we find captivating. This site is primarily about information and experiences, but we do occasionally organise trips to places away from the mainstream. In the past we have taken groups to Algeria and Niger in the Sahara, and ran an 'oldies' overland trip from the UK to Kathmandu, Nepal. See our Sahara books: Chad Sahara and Kanchi goes to the Tibesti, Chad.

On this site look for other books we have written and any one-off expeditions planned. During the European summer you'll find us in the Alps on the Tour du Mont BlancSee also Cicerone, Bradt, Amazon, Stanfords, Daunt books and in Nepal: Himalayan Map House, Pilgrims
