Episode 26: Arita Baaijens

  Arita Baaijens is a Dutch biologist, explorer, photographer and the author of several books and numerous articles. She has carried out more than 25 expeditions (3-6 months at a time) with her own caravan of camels all over Egypt and the Sudan, where her knowledge of the desert - and camels - often put her male companions to shame.  In 2013, she left the desert behind to spend 101 days on horseback as she explored the Altai Mountains, a little-known region that lies on the border of Russia, China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan.
