Canyons & Craters Expedition, Namibia 2014

We are excited to announce that applications are now open for British Exploring’s Expedition to Namibia for anyone aged 16+, during the summer of 2014. This expedition will involve an extraordinary journey through desert, savannah and mountain regions. Fieldwork will include locating, mapping and photographing the prehistoric rock art of the Brandberg Massif, painted by ancient bushmen over 20,000 years ago. What’s more, for anyone interested in media-related activities, there will now also be a creative focus on photography and photo editing, adventure film-making, travel writing and more.

 For anyone interested in this unforgettable adventure in the summer of 2014, now is a great time to get involved and make your fundraising plans with plenty of notice! Find out more and apply to join on the Namibia Expedition webpage.
