Hi, I’m John Horsfall, a British Adventure Athlete. I grew up in the South of England, and early on was addicted to Travel and Adventure. I tried to suppress my desire in pursuit of a traditional career path, but after a stint as a Landscape Architect in London, I left the confines of my office to get back in touch with my adventurous roots. Now, I run a successful podcast talking to other Adventurers and Explorers like me who do incredible things around the world.


Since 2016 I have been pursuing endurance adventures from running across Kenya to cycling from London to Asia. I continue to encourage people to set out of their comfort zone and pursue their goals. After a double rupture of my spine in 2019, and covid in 2020. The adventures have changed, but the passion has never wavered.

While the covid virus has taken hold of the world and the travel industry. I set up the Modern Adventurer Podcast to inspire people into adventures, listening to stories of other explorers and adventurers who have done remarkable things and how their humble tale started. As the podcast has grown, I have gained experience in the adventure world and spread my message across social media.

Since then, my passions have diversified, and so has my content. Travel, hiking, conservation, and giving inspiring people a platform to tell their stories, I touch all of this across social media.

I have worked with brands that I respect and have a good fit for what I do. From Huel as a food replacement when cycling across Europe, without money to Off-beat Safaris in Kenya riding across the Masai Mara. I continue to work with brands that fit with the Ziba Adventures ethos bringing their message to life through stunning imagery, visual storytelling, and compelling narratives.

My goal is to capture the essence of an experience or adventure in a way that is both relatable and inspiring to the viewer.

That being said, I understand that every partnership and collaboration is unique, and look forward to creating impactful content tailored to your specific needs. If you are interested in working together, I would love to hear from you.

So, what does the future hold for myself and Ziba Adventures? I will continue to grow the adventure brand and encouraging others to come along for the ride and get out into the wild. Immersive Podcasts, Travel Photography and fingers crossed by Ziba Adventures TV will launch soon, focusing on education, conservation and documentary-style adventures.

I hope that Ziba can be the fuel to inspire you out of comfort and into a crazy, chaotic adventure that will have you telling the stories to your friends for the rest of your life.

Have a great day and happy adventures
