About Will Clark.  Founder.

 

Will's adventure career began at the age of 8 when he became the youngest person to cycle across Europe along with his Brother and Dad. 
Throughschool it was windsurfing that fueled the stoke until aged 14 and the discovery of whitewater kayaking. After school it was the French Alps and snowboarding and whilst studying for a History degree at the University of Leeds the snow and whitewater were kept in a kind of symbiotic balance. The first trip to Africa was whilst still at Uni and a kayaking trip to the White Nile in Uganda. The opportunity of work brought him back and from 2006 Will was living full time in Jinja, Uganda -working as a kayak guide and saving money for kayak trips to other parts of the World. 2008 saw a new direction when along with two buddies Will started Sipi River Lodge - a beautiful private lodge in the foothills of Mt Elgon, a destination that later proved to be a mountain biking Mecca.  With the lodge established and looking for another challenge, in 2011 Will took over Nalubale Rafting, at the time a small whitewater Rafting company based in Jinja.  These days Nalubale is well regarded as one of the best whitewater rafting companies in Uganda.

Will has a BA (Hons) in History from the University of Leeds, is a Level 4 BCU Kayak Coach, IRF TL5 Raft Guide, MIAS L2 MTB Guide, and Wilderness First Responder.  He is a big fan of good coffee and
good

whisky, random chat and impromptu adventures.

Ride Karamoja Partners


There are  times in life when all the pieces fall into place and the right team just comes together.  building a  mountain bike park in the middle of nowhere where the local people had never ever seen a mountain bike is no easy task. As we built the trails, we were so lucky to have Will Clark founder of Clark Expeditions and Simon  Blake    one of the  team that makes us Kenyan Riders. Both are highly skilled  cyclists and they help[ed us  build the trail network and launch the Second Tour of Karamoja.


Nights were spent  around the campfire,   gazing at stars and dreaming about what might be possible. Will owns a lodge at Sipi Falls on the shoulders of Mt Elgon and  hasstarted  cycling adventures there.   We are in Moroto 120 Kilometers away  and Kidepo Valley National Park another 120 KM's further up the road.  With world class cycling, unbelievable beauty, culture and the best game park in the world, plus our  love of cycling and Paul   a global cycling personality having grown up  in Karamoja, it was only natural that we create a series of cycling adventures and  bring  the world to our special biking corner of the planet.  We have the  lodges, the skills  to  operate  safari camps, incredible terrain and a team that is  world class in every respect.


Partnering with Will and Simon is a natural and we are super excited to create adventures that you and your clients will love.  We encourage you to visit  Clark Expeditions and contact Will or myself, pat@karamoja.org if you are interested in talking to us about one of our adventures or one that we can create specifically for you.
