Matt Kettlewell

Born and raised on a remote farm in the Yorkshire Dales, Matt discovered his love for adventure at a young age.

After finishing school and college, he accepted a job accidentally in South Africa. This sparked his love for travel, spending nearly a year working at a rehab for injured wildlife. Learning skills and lessons about working his Africas wildlife, he loved every second of this adventure.

Returning to the UK, Matt struggled with the 9-5 jobs. So set his sights on turning his love for adventure into his job, he now leads groups around the world sharing his passion.

Central America

2016, Matt set off for a long walk across Central America.

The mix of cultures experienced on this expedition was eye opening.

Also the unknown migrant issue at the Costa Rican boarder to Nicaragua.

Circumnavigation of Vietnam

Starting from the Northern most point of the country, on the boarder with China.

The route had everything in terms of terrain. Jungles, swamps, mountains, cloud forests, deserts and built up areas.

Not to mention a stretch of road, with so many unexploded bombs, that it would take 300 years to make this area safe.
