Epic 2017 End of Year Update
Another momentous year…not sure where it has gone! This year was a first for Epic - we ran adventures to all seven continents (yes, we even ran a climb of Mont Blanc!).

For me personally the year started in Patagonia and Antarctica with a trek in Patagonia followed by our fly-in, fly-out Antarctica cruise. I then rolled onto Everest Base Camp in April and then to New Guinea and the Kokoda Track in June. July, August and September featured a number of safaris in Africa. One of these was our inaugural trek and paddle in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Interspersed with these trips I visited the US, Italy, the UK and Morocco.
Botswana Walking Safari
In July Brad had the pleasure of guiding a small group of intrepid clients on an epic canoeing and walking safari through the wilds of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Find out more...
