I just don't get the idea of these adventures.

They get sponsorship and can generate cash for a certain cause! We had a speaker who is legally blind (not totally but past a threshold, she has a medical case) anyhow she went on a trip in India and crossed the country on elephant back to raise awareness for that cause (the medical condition she has)... she now manages an NGO and does inspirational talks...

One of her quotes I really liked:
“some people try to make you into something you’re not, just be yourself and shite the bastards”

She’s Irish :)
