August 2015 – Wilderness Safaris is delighted to be included as one of Fodor’s Top 10 African Safari Tour Operators in a listing published on Fodors.com on 6 August. Fodor’s editors recognised Wilderness Safaris as one of ‘Africa’s most respected and innovative tour operators’, offering ‘incredible destinations, authentic experiences, and seamless service from start to finish’.

“We are extremely proud to receive this endorsement from such a well-known travel brand as Fodor’s, especially for highlighting our commitment to our 4Cs ethic of Conservation, Community, Commerce and Culture. It is inspiring to be recognised for not only our seamless service in creating personalised and immersive journeys, but also for our responsible tourism practices which run throughout our operations”, says Dave Bennett, Chief Sales Officer.

With over 30 years’ experience, Wilderness Safaris is one of Africa’s long-running and industry-leading ecotourism and conservation companies. From humble beginnings in 1983, the company has grown substantially over the last 32 years – not only in size but also in its ability to positively impact Africa.

“Whilst one of our core priorities remains to work in close partnership with our travel partners to tailor-make life-changing journeys for our guests, we will continue to play a pioneering role in driving sustainability and conservation-based agendas in order to grow our ecotourism footprint in Africa and to inspire positive action”, Bennett added.

“The next few years ahead will be an exciting time for Wilderness as we rebuild Mombo and launch Gorokwe Camp in Botswana in 2016, as well as launch our Rwanda circuit later on in the year. We will continue to support our non-profit partners, Children in the Wilderness (CITW) and the Wilderness Wildlife Trust, to help drive our community and conservation programmes, and remain committed to reducing our operational impact to ensure the lightest environmental footprint possible.”
