Ian Packham is a trained medical researcher turned adventurer. He decided to circumnavigate the African continent by means of public transportation. The trip was this first time anyone had done this solo and unsupported. During his 13 month – 25,000 mile trip, Ian was mistaken for an undercover UN official during Liberia’s presidential election and was denied access to the Democratic Republic of Congo. He was a 2013 runner-up for the National Geographic Traveler writing competition and his new book “Encircle Africa: Around Africa by Public Transport” chronicles his adventure.
