Wilderness Safaris

Wilderness Safaris is one of several independent safari companies whose camps we often include in our itineraries.

Background Information

Wilderness Safaris is a prestigious luxury eco-tourism company that was established in 1983. It operates camps and safaris in Botswana, Congo, Kenya, Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the Seychelles. Each group of the 70 lodges and camps has its own identity, feel and character to fit the area it is in and the wildlife that inhabits it.

Wilderness Safaris aims at sustainable conservation through responsible tourism. They provide luxury safari experiences while helping to protect Africa's wildlife heritage, and sharing the benefits of tourism with the local communities of the camps in which they operate. Of the 2,800 staff who work for them, 85% come from neighbouring communities.

Wilderness Safaris is, along with Great Plains Conservation and Singita, one of our best high-end operators. It is particularly good in Botswana, offering a perfect balance between luxury and authenticity. Its flagship property is Mombo Camp in Botswana.

“We have shared a long-standing and rewarding relationship with Yellow Zebra over the years. It’s always a pleasure dealing with such an experienced team of people who are so passionate about Africa and knowledgeable how to sell it; they are always fun yet very professional. We look forward to growing our partnership in the future.”
