Wilderness Safaris Explorations
Wilderness Explorations is the mobile-tented safari arm of Wilderness Safaris. Each journey is carefully designed to get up close to the most secluded and off-the-beaten-track wildlife locations, mostly in private concessions where guests won't see any other people. Set departure Explorations are planned to explore a range of different regions and ecosystems during optimal times of the year.
Just like safari travel of yesteryear, the camps are set up and dismantled as you go. Explorations are for small groups of up to 8 guests only, or tailor-made for private groups. Accommodation is in very comfortable canvas tents with all the necessary amenities. Guests can be as involved in daily camp life as they like. Choose from Discoverer, Adventurer or Trails explorations.
On the more luxurious Discoverer Exploration guests stay in a combination of beautifully appointed traditional "Meru" style tents as well fixed camps. The Adventurer Explorations camp out in pre-erected en-suite "dome" tents. On the Trails Explorations the tents are a combination of both tent types and facilities are more rustic. No matter which exploration you choose, the emphasis is on communing closely with nature in her most unspoilt habitats, and being convivial around a campfire under the African stars. Explorations can include game viewing by vehicle, boat, on foot or by mountain bike.
Our African Safari Consultants have been incredibly privileged to visit almost all of the Wilderness Safaris camps and are able to advise you on seasonality, accessibility, luxury levels, how to combine the different camps and eco-systems and get the most out of your African Safari.
