Ontheflyexpeditions - undertaking expeditions around the globe since 1975
Early morning start - just beyond the Pokot mission at Cacatoto - Kenya 2008
Experience the Unexplored:
"I want the world to see what we are about to
shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first
"To see a world
in a grain of sand and
a heaven in a wildflower
hold infinity in the palm
of your hand and eternity
in an hour.
-- William Blake
At Ontheflyexpeditions we travel
across International borders to the last remaining tribal, cultural, wildlife
and biodiversity rich strongholds. We work closely with indigenous
communities in order to bring needed resources in the form of tourism dollars,
donations of labor, skills, and materials. We work with these communities
in a collaborative effort in order to help bring about positive change both
within ourselves and the people who's lives we touch. We are educators,
adventurers, anthropologists, linguists, archaeologists, environmentalists,
information gatherers, and ultimately students of the natural world.
We achieve our goals by including
remote locations in need of conservation or preservation resources. We
search for ways to improve the lives of those communities we visit by
observing, assisting, suggesting and ultimately bringing in much needed foreign
currency in the form of environmentally sound practices. All infrastructure
that we utilize during research and expeditions must be run in association with
expeditions to remote destinations, working closely with local communities in
order to solve some of our globes most pressing issues.
