Description

From 1980 to 2000, Camel Trophy took more than 500 amateur competitors from 35 countries on extraordinary and challenging adventures. On most of these events, teams drove specially-prepared Land Rovers to the limit and beyond in locations as varied as Borneo, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea and Tanzania. Camel Trophy charts the history of the event and tells the incredible stories resulting from the constant challenge to both man and machine.

As one of the official photographers on the last four events, author Nick Dimbleby’s first-hand account, the shared experiences of competitors, along with contemporary reports and extensive new interviews of key event leaders, all combine to make Camel Trophy a gripping tale of adventure, adversity, technological change and logistical challenge.

Comprehensively illustrated with a stunning collection of photographs including never-before-published, behind-the-scenes shots, this exhaustively researched publication can legitimately claim to be the definitive history of the Camel Trophy.
