Travel that makes a difference!

Welcome to World Safaris! With over 50 years of combined wildlife travel and commitment to conservation between us, we have launched World Safaris to help you offer some of the most exciting wildlife destinations in the world, while making a difference, at the same time.

From the splendid isolation of the Galápagos Islands to the magic of the African bush, traveling with World Safaris is an exciting way to engage people in support of your conservation and education missions. But we believe these tours should offer more than an enjoyable opportunity to experience and enjoy the natural world– they should make a difference!

World Safaris combines three important elements to create what we call responsible Wildlife Conservation Travel:

1. The recognized principles of Responsible Travel

2. Active financial support of in-situ conservation and community development projects, through the World Safaris ImpactOnWildlife program

3. Customized and affordable small-group safaris, specifically designed to meet your needs and interests

Thank you for visiting World Safaris and we invite you to join with us in unifying wildlife conservation, local community welfare and responsible travel in Wildlife Conservation Travel.
