Why Travel to Africa with Wild Wonders


Traveling with Wild Wonders is different.  Our tour groups are small, and we pride ourselves in having a casual atmosphere.  While some places we stay have specific mealtimes, other venues are small camps where we are the only guests.  Our accommodations often include local handmade furnishings, and occasionally luxurious plunge pools in our jungle trips.  It’s typical to relax around a campfire in the evening, getting to know your fellow travelers and sharing stories about the great places you have visited.

We do provide some high value items that you don’t find on other trips.  On our Africa trips, we provide a private ranger and expert wildlife guide during our game drives, a private chef for our meals, and meetings with conservationists on the front lines.  Unlike other bush experiences, our trackers are constantly scanning the ground for prints, which we follow to many surprising sightings.

In Borneo we meet with conservationists on the front line to protect this bio-diverse hot spot.  We visit several different biomes, including game viewing by boat, rain forest treks, and very special private nighttime hikes to view nocturnal species with extremely knowledgeable local guides.  We offer an in-depth opportunity to see firsthand the amazing conservation work that is being done with rescued orangutans and sun bears.

If you are an avid diver or beach lover, we can create pre-and post excursions on the beautiful Bornean coast of the South China Sea.

Our intimate conservation minded Eco-adventures are truly unique experiences that create memories for a lifetime.

This is the homey atmosphere of South Africa and Borneo we love, and we delight in sharing it with each of our tour participants.
