About the Expert: Richard Bangs

Richard Bangs has often been called the father of modern adventure travel since co-founding Sobek Expeditions (now MT Sobek) in 1973. He has spent 50 years exploring the globe and led the first descents of 35 rivers, including the Yangtze and the Zambezi. Richard still loves to lead exciting “out there” adventures and is often found heading out on unique adventures like an Angola Expedition with MT Sobek in Summer 2021. Richard is an accomplished storyteller, best known for his popular PBS series “Richard Bangs’ Adventures with Purpose,” and was a 2019 PURE Awards finalist for his contribution to experiential travel.
