Welcome to Africa

    Founded in Botswana in 1983, Wilderness Safaris is widely acclaimed as the continent’s foremost ecotourism operator. We give our guests life-changing journeys in some of the most remote and pristine areas in Africa and in so doing help conserve Africa’s spectacular biodiversity and share ecotourism’s benefits with rural people.

    We offer private access to 2.5 million hectares (over six million acres) of Africa’s finest wildlife and wilderness areas through some 50 luxury camps and safaris across eight African countries: Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Rwanda (2017), Seychelles, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Our wildlife, marine and cultural safaris in remote, pristine wilderness destinations are specialised, educational, explorative and fun.
