Alistair Carr's Biography

Alistair Carr has lived and travelled with nomads in some of the planet’s remotest wildernesses.  He has lectured on both sides of the Atlantic and led a campaign that triggered a global debate about the role of exploration in the 21st century.  A former trustee of the Royal Geographical Society, he is forging an alliance leading to discoveries in the world’s third largest rainforest, New Guinea, much of which is unexplored.   

The Times Literary Supplement wrote of his latest book, The Nomad’s Path: Travels in the Sahel (Tauris Parke Paperbacks 2017):  This is a classic desert travel book, in the best English tradition of Doughty and Wilfred Thesiger.’  The journey, with former Tubu rebels during the Second Tuareg Rebellion, crossed landscapes where no westerner had been seen in living memory and, as reviewed in Conde Nast Traveller: ‘The result rightfully takes its place in the long tradition of British desert exploration.’ 

Alistair has combined the long-related disciplines of exploration, literature and art for a 21st century way of life, and recently lived in a 18th century hut overlooking an iceberg-studded Arctic sea working towards another solo exhibition.   

Having observed the fast-changing impacts of climate change in the Arctic and Papua’s deforestation, his current exploration initiative is seeded in an attempt to help protect one of Earth’s primary ecosystems
