“I trust Ash with my life, and know that anyone who travels with him, will have the experience of a lifetime.”

For the last two decades I’ve spent at least a couple of months of every year in tropical rainforests, but the country I keep going back to is Guyana. The first reason is that it is the best jungle nation on earth, where you are most likely to actually see vast anacondas, jaguar, giant anteaters and miles and miles of untouched pristine forest. The other reason is Ashley Holland. Ash has taken me to on my most memorable jungle journeys. Together we’ve dived with electric eels, caught spiders the size of dinner plates, slept in the treetops watching harpy eagles bring in monkeys for their chicks, and caught piranha to cook on the fire. Every trip has revealed new wonders. I trust Ash with my life, and know that anyone who travels with him, will have the experience of a lifetime.’ Can’t wait to come back!!!!!
