Ness Knight is an explorer, conservationist and ocean advocate who has completed a diverse collection of expeditions in extreme environments around the globe.
In April 2018 she successfully completed a world first ‘source to sea’ descent of the Essquibo River in Guyana, the third largest river in South America. The expedition redefined modern exploration as Ness’s team pulled together an international collaboration with the indigenous Wai Wai tribe to locate the river’s source, something that has never before been found or documented.
Last year she explored the Namib Desert solo, traversing through the inhospitable lands in the remotest Northern regions to better understand the extraordinary people and wildlife that survive and thrive in this remote corner of the world.
