BORN OUT OF ADVENTURE 44 YEARS AGO
Tusker Trail is no ordinary global adventure company. We were founded on the spirit of adventure that could only come from a wild eyed 23 year old Eddie Frank who began chasing adventure in his beat-up old Landrover, leading his first group of intrepid travelers across Africa.
Take a journey back in time to the pivotal moments in founding guide Eddie Frank's history that paved the way for the creation of Tusker Trails Adventure Company.
You start your journey in February of 1977, when Eddie was having a beer with some friends at their local pub in "name or location of pub" NOTE FOR EDDIE WHERE WAS THE PUB?. The topic of the trans-Africa expedition came up.
His friends bet him he would never do the trip. That was the Spark. The Dare.
Sorry,You have not added any story yet
Eddie Frank "discovered" Kilimanjaro on his first trans-Africa expedition. Since that day Tusker's founding guide Eddie Frank has climbed Kilimanjaro 44 times and crossed the Sahara Desert 33 times.
It's on these journeys through Africa Eddie found himself exhilarated by a particular type of adventure - trekking.
Tusker Trail was created to share that passion with you.
