Benedict Allen is particularly known for his solo expeditions to the remotest corners of the globe – journeys famously achieved not with a satellite phone or GPS but through techniques learned from indigenous communities. These and other ventures are depicted in his ten books – including two best sellers – and numerous television series for the BBC, National Geographic, Channel 5, the History Channel and elsewhere.
A former Trustee of the Royal Geographical Society, Patron of the Environmental Justice Foundation and Save the Rhino Trust, he is (according to the Daily Telegraph) one of only two ‘great British explorers’ alive today. In 2017 he attracted headlines around the world when he disappeared while negotiating an inaccessible corner of Papua New Guinea.
