Born to Explore With Richard Wiese

Adventurer Richard Wiese guides viewers on journeys across the continents to find out about unique stories, people and wildlife. Wiese's travels often take him to areas that have been untouched by modern society and harken back to past times. Tracking elusive white rhino in southern Africa, spending time with orangutans in Indonesia, and learning the customs of forest dwellers in the Ugandan jungles are a few of the adventures featured in the half-hour episodes. Wiese has always had a passion for exploration and adventure, even climbing Mount Kilimanjaro at the age of 12.
