Rusty Johnson is at home in the unknown. On a whim he took a 3,000 mile trek through 5 countries in southern Africa, then flew to the West Indies to film an active volcano twice. He is a jungle guide with over 25 solo expeditions to the Amazon, and at the age of 19 he was the youngest person to have hand raised an endangered Andean condor, which was 1 of only 10 condors privately possessed in the United States. He is the originator, star, and Consulting Producer of Travel Channel's Hotel Amazon, and is the author of a book entitled The Twilight of the Wild (Foreword written by Jim Fowler of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom). He has consulted for National Geographic Television's HOOKED, the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, DATELINE, Reader's Digest "Must See Places on Earth" DVD series and he has filmed on the island of Kauai for the documentary series Cosmic Journeys.
