Celebration after completing a water tower on expedition in Ecuador

Below is dramatic footage of a close encounter with a tiger whilst on Expedition in Nepal.


JBS says, 'During the night we were disturbed by the sound of tigers fighting not far from the camp.  We set out on our elephants at dawn to sweep the area to the north and were silently brushing through the tall grass when, with an explosion of energy and a loud snarl, a huge male rushed at us. 


My mount ‘Laxmi Kali’ lashed out at him with her trunk and the other elephants voiced their alarm, at which the magnificent pale-coloured tiger withdrew.  We followed and again he charged us as we came upon his kill in the trampled grass. 


We discovered the remains of a female tiger, torn limb from limb; ‘Snow White’ had devoured the tigress and only her paws and skull remained.'

JBS is mounting two new expeditions in 2016:

  • Sierra Nevada, Colombia in February 2016.  This expedition is now full although we are running a reserve list.
  • Mongolia in July 2016.  There are still spaces available on this expedition.
