story of trekking in Gabon with Mike Fey
Mike Fey doesn’t know the meaning of the word “detour.” That’s one of the first things you learn about Mike if you ever go trekking with him. This week on my radio show “National Geographic Weekend” I share the story of the time I followed Mike through the forests of Gabon looking for elephants and gorillas. We found the elephants but I also found a tiny creature I wasn’t looking for and for that I blame Mike and his insistence on pushing forward come crocs or thigh deep swamps.
In this video of me telling the story I’ve also added some pictures from the journey to show you the swamps we navigated and the elephants we found at the end which made the whole adventure all the more memorable.
