About Chris Scott

In 1981, aged 21, Chris Scott's first desert trip ground to a halt somewhere around 21 N, 6 E with a split fuel tank - a pretty normal Saharan introduction it seems. During the eighties, working as a courier in London Chris returned to the desert every other year and in 1989 organised the first and last 'Sahara Motorcycle Tour' from which only one bike returned. Desert Travels tells the full story. Recognising these recurring difficulties he prepared a report for the RGS which has developed into the current Adventure Motorcycling Handbook, now with its sixth edition. In 1991 Rough Guides asked Chris to co-author Australia and he's been travel writing since then. In 1998 Chris decided to focus solely on the Sahara, which has always been his passion, and began work on Sahara Overland, now in its second edition. As well as writing for various travel, 4WD and motorcycle magazines and newspapers over the years (including modelling for Esquire as an 'explorer'), Chris is a regular guest speaker at Royal Geographical Society (RGS) events and Adventure Travel shows. He's advised scores of desert-bound travellers as well as professionals from photographers to the BBC. As well as running and leading tours in the Sahara, in recent years he's also produced adventure travel dvds to accompany his books, which have featured on National Geographic Channel, Sky TV and Channel 4. Morocco Overland - from the Atlas to the Sahara, 2nd edition was published in 2013. He has also updated several of the books in the British Walking Guide series. Overlanders' Handbook is a worldwide route and planning guide for car, 4WD, van and truck. It's the definitive manual for planning and undertaking a vehicle-dependent overlanding adventure across the wilds of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Chris's Adventure Motorcycling Handbook (Trailblazer) is in its 6th edition.
