Wildlife Adventures & Award-Winning Safaris

The thrill of safari is not only about incredible wildlife viewing—many of us also want to learn more, give back, and go beyond the game drive. We work closely with our partners in Africa to bring you deep connections to the communities we visit as well as to the amazing wildlife you’ve come to see. Whether you’re looking for a classic “Big Five” experience, special access to hidden gems that see few safari-goers, or meeting the rangers and researchers pioneering conservation in their field, we have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for you. Hebu kwenda—let’s go!

Community & Conservation

Africa is a dream destination, but it is also a fragile one. Wilderness Travel supports—and our guests visit—the projects of leading conservationists including Jane Goodall, elephant expert Iain Douglas-Hamilton, and cheetah expert Laurie Marker. We have funded anti-poaching camps in Namibia and our special conservation safaris give you exclusive access to projects like AfriCat’s annual “Vet Check” of the big cats and Dr. Flip Stander’s extraordinary work with desert lions. Educating the next generation is also of critical importance, and we are honored to support schools throughout Africa. Your safari with us supports this work.
