Wilderness Explorations are an innovative range of fully serviced cross-country mobile safaris that create a secluded sense of wild camping in Africa. These safaris utilise mostly private concessions and wildlife areas exclusive to Wilderness guests. Highly trained Explorations guides lead each journey from start to finish, creating a seamless and detailed interpretive experience. A variety of travel modes such as game drives, walking, mokoro, canoeing, boating and air charters maximise every opportunity to view Africa’s diverse flora and fauna. Each itinerary has been carefully created with the changing seasons, game movements and guest experience in mind.
All Explorations itineraries have set departure dates, and operate with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 8 confirmed guests per safari. Personally crafted Explorations are available on flexible dates and tailored itineraries for private groups or families (4-8 guests).
There are three styles of Explorations, all of which feature a mix of transport modes aimed at enhancing your experience of the region’s wonders.
Discoverer Explorations use accommodation alternating between permanent camping sites within private concessions and Wilderness camps. Accommodation is in specially designed walk-in Meru-style tents with en-suite toilet, shower and basin.
Adventurer Explorations camps use “maxi” dome tents which are spacious with en-suite toilets and generous “bucket” showers located at the back of each tent.
Trails Explorations are defined mainly by unique modes of transport – be it on foot or by canoe. Accommodation varies between Adventurer “maxi” dome tents and Discoverer Meru-style tents as well as sleeping platforms.
