I have heard of Jibunoh and his expeditions in the past. It good to know he is now an environmentalist. I'm just curious to know what kind of car are they using for the travel, and have they consider the impact of the whole travel on the environment in terms of carbon footprints etc. It will be good if this is considered and they try to offset such impact with the benefit of the awareness. It will be a good idea if someone like Jibunoh can start debates on climate change in Nigeria. Especcially with the American-influence 'yahozee' consumerism in Nigeria now.
anyway, its a shame i'm not an experienced camera person (I can learn though) but I'm not a woman ( that i cannot learn), i would have love to join the expedition free of charge, Ill even pay my own travel expenses as long as it is not more than a month. Ill love to see the documentay when its out.

Camerawoman? The desert is a tough safari for even the ablest of men. But, I guess this is a trip of a lifetime

The desert would be paradise compared to the chaos of Lagos, hence i should fit good.
