At Explorer, we don’t simply support sustainable travel, we live it.


We encourage sustainable travel which respects the environment and benefits local communities. As supporters of the TreadRight Foundation, we are committed to making travel matter by supporting people, wildlife and the planet for generations to come.

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword for us; it is woven into the fabric of everything we do. We safeguard the cultures and traditions of the communities we visit, promoting economic empowerment through our support of micro-enterprises and community-based tourism initiatives. Through our support of ME to WE – an innovative social enterprise that empowers people to change the world through their everyday consumer choices – we offer our travelers choices that leave a positive footprint on the planet.

Together with the Wilderness Foundation Africa, our commitment to preserving wildlife means that we only promote ethical experiences which protect and sustain wildlife and wilderness through integrated conservation and education programmes.

When you travel with Explorer, we’ll give you opportunities to meaningfully interact with the people and places of Africa, taking only pictures, and leaving only your footprints behind.

Our Focus on People

We are committed to supporting and encouraging the cultures and traditions of the communities we visit in Africa, and ensuring they see the true benefit from tourism through economic empowerment and community-based initiatives.

Our Focus on Wildlife

By supporting those wildlife initiatives and organisations that are actively driving change in sustainable conservation, we educate and empower our guests with information about ethical wildlife experiences and encounters.

Our Focus on Planet

Our journey towards eliminating single-use plastics and reducing the environmental impact of what we do is just the beginning. In 2019, we implemented energy-reducing solar panels on the roofs of all our offices and vehicle depots, and have seen a significant reduction in energy from our national grid.
