A Day on Safari

Mornings: Wake early to the sounds of the wild, search for game as the sun rises, and enjoy a mid-morning tea or coffee break under the shade of an acacia tree.

Afternoons: After a leisurely lunch back at camp, head out in mid-afternoon for new encounters, and as the golden light spreads across the African wilds, enjoy a “sundowner” drink in the perfect panoramic spot.

Africa’s Stunning Nature Parks

There is so much to see on this magnificent continent. Whether you are joining us for your very first safari or are a dedicated, lifelong safari-goer, you’ll find we have the most varied program imaginable.

Giving Back

Africa is a dream destination, but it is also a fragile one. Wilderness Travel supports—and our guests have visited—the projects of leading conservationists including Jane Goodall, elephant expert Iain Douglas-Hamilton, and cheetah expert Laurie Marker. An award-winning reforestation project on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, foundeded by our Trip Leader Sebastian Chuwa, is restoring the ecosystem as well as providing employment for village women. 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.
