Providing excellence, experience and exclusivity...
Our company was established as African Explorations in 1989 and ten years later, we incorporated India, Bhutan, Nepal, Borneo and finally, Myanmar (Burma). When we opened up our South American arm, purely for clarity, it was decided to rebrand the company 'The Explorations Company', which remains dedicated to creating personal, exclusive safaris and high-end holidays for the discerning traveller. We aim to make each luxury safari and holiday experience ‘the journey of a lifetime’.
What makes us different?
From the outset we have always been involved in philanthropy and in particular Philanthropic Travel, supporting deserving, usually small, “sharp-end” conservation and community projects since our inception in 1989. In an age of increasing awareness about world issues and global needs there has been a growing trend towards “travel philanthropy” or, more simply put, using travel as a means to give back. The problem, however, is the overwhelming potential scope and, at the same time, making sure that promises are turned into reality. Our inchoate new offshoot, Philanthropy Plus, gives individuals who are eager to reconnect and help those less fortunate than themselves the opportunity to do just that as a core feature of their travel plans: thus travelling to - and directly experiencing as part of their holiday, safari or vacation – places and projects where they may be directly able to help.
