Emile Waite-Taylor is the Co-Founder and Expedition Director of Xped Global. With expertise that converges guided self-drive odysseys, intrepid adventure jaunts, and global spectacles, Emile's very essence has been moulded by the wonders of travel.

Emile's life journey reads like a map of wanderlust. From orchestrating trekking odysseys amidst the towering majesty of the Himalayas, to threading the intricate tapestry of the Silk Road, and embarking upon daring escapades into the heart of Indonesian tropical paradises and the vast expanse of the Western Sahara deserts, he has etched his existence with the ink of exploration. A seeker of thrills and an eternal voyager.

Over the course of 16 transformative years, Emile's involvement in travel has thrust him into the epicenter of off-road expeditions spanning the globe. It was during these moments that he beheld a beacon of opportunity, an opportunity to weave his fervour, expertise, and wisdom into the very fabric of an exceptional overland adventure enterprise.

Mike Burton is the other Co-Founder of Xped Global, with a lifetime of business leadership and guest relations experience, Mike brings a wealth of commercial knowledge and sets exemplary standards of service excellence.

Their mission? An elegant simplicity personified. To intertwine the opulence of luxury with the pulse-pounding thrill of adventure. To resurrect the gilded era of British expeditionary tradition, breathing new life into a time-honoured legacy of exploration.
