Whether he’s gathering honey with Batwa Pygmies in Uganda, tracking white rhinos in South Africa or receiving a Hindu blessing in India, exploration is in his blood.
Since Richard climbed Mount Kilimanjaro at age 11 with his father, he’s been on a non-stop adventure around the world.
Through Richard’s curiosity, warmth and humor, viewers discover how travel can inspire and transform us all. From animal encounters to elaborate rituals and celebrations of people everywhere—the Born to Explore® programs are a window on the world. A unique combination of human drama, adventure and breathtaking beauty in every episode.
“I’m still as passionate about discovery today as I was then,”
says Wiese. Thanks to our show, now everyone can go with me—and we’ll summit together.”
“Exploration is as much about discovery of the natural world as it is about understanding the many beautiful cultures of our planet.”
