About the author
Ben Thomas, a Brit who currently lives and works in the Canary Islands, is the epitome of a Land Rover adventurer. Ben and his trusted Defender 110 Td5, called Monty, have completed more African overland trips than a herd of migrating buffaloes. With so many African adventures under his belt, Ben says he struggles to acclimatise to the foul British weather when he returns home and it isn’t long before he yearns for some African sunshine. Ben plans to travel from Tanzania back to the UK in 2015 in a single trip. It’s clear that adventure forms part of his core as he runs a watersport business that specialises in kitesurfing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. He takes us through one of his previous expeditions from the United Kingdom to Nigeria.
