|WELCOME TO OFFICIAL RIPLEY DAVENPORT WEBSITE!
Ripley Davenport is an explorer, adventurer, entrepreneur, autodidact and speaker and best known for desert travel. He has crossed the Gobi
Desert twice on foot each time traversing over 1000 miles. His fascination of desert travel developed from a tattered hardback and its
seductive sepia images of Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Edward Lawrence.
In 2011, Ripley led an international team across the Gobi Desert covering 1136 miles in 52 days, an expedition that established many notable
achievements. Shortly after his return, Ripley was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Since then, he has refused to look back.
Since leaving school Ripley has travelled to more than 40 countries on 4 different continents and swam twice across the Equator. He has walked
many long distance trails and hitch-hiked all over Europe and travelled throughout Asia, Northern America and regions in Africa, such as Ghana
and Namibia. He's even been as far south as South Georgia on the fringes of Antarctica.
In recent years, Ripley has taken to the sea; exploring his personal limitations, freediving and adventure swimming.
