The Locations

Where a journey to nature's edge will take you...

The Journey to Nature’s Edge will take socially conscious explorers across twelve countries, spending as much time as possible in each location to maximise their chances of seeing the wildlife in question. The adventure boasts luxury travel options including helicopter travel in some instances.

1. Laikipia Plateau, Kenya

The unique nature of Kenya’s delights range from the savannahs rich with big game, searing deserts, equatorial forests and the fascinating Maasai tribal culture. This leg of the Journey to Nature’s Edge will see travellers arriving in northern white rhino territory by helicopter or bi-plane.

2. Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Located just south of the equator, Rwanda boasts scenic undulating mountains and a chain of seven volcanoes that punctuate Central Africa’s landscape. Commonly known as ‘The Land of a Thousand Hills’, it plays host to one particularly famous resident, the mountain gorilla

3. Mahale Mountains National Park, Tanzania

Tanzania boasts a kaleidoscopic variety that can be viewed as ‘quintessential Africa’: from the vast, sweeping plains of the Serengeti, the peaks of Kilimanjaro to the turquoise shades of Zanzibar. Travellers will approach their chimpanzee encounter by 5 seater cessna within the amazing Mahale Mountains National Park.

4. Andasibe and Ranomafana National Parks, Madagascar

Found 250 miles off the cost of East Africa, Madagascar is a place like no other on earth and has even been named the ‘8th continent’ for its enchanting and resplendent breadth of diversity that includes the cheeky black and white ruffed lemur.

5. Selinda Concession, Botswana

Landlocked, largely unspoiled and with one of the lowest population densities on the planet, Botswana is home to some stunning geography and extraordinary wildlife. Travellers will search for African wild dogs by air from a doors-off helicopter in the renowned Selinda Concession.

6. Palmwag Concession, Namibia

Flanked by the mountainous sand dunes of the Kalahari Desert and the cool, crashing waves of the Atlantic, the scenic and predominantly arid landscapes of Namibia are some of the most dramatic in Africa. Adventurers will fly in by private plane to seek the elusive black rhino within the Palmwag Concession.

7. Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica

Many people are unaware that Earth’s southernmost continent is also it’s coldest, driest and windiest, making it officially a desert. While limited vegetation does occur in the form of tundra, 98% of Antarctica is covered by ice.

8. Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks, and Ladakh, India

The seventh largest country in the world, India is a riot for the senses. Travellers will visit several of India’s national parks seeking the Bengal tiger, including Kanha National Park (setting of ‘The Jungle Book’). Then experience a dramatic step change in scenery while searching for the elusive snow leopard through the cold rocky outcrops of the Himalayas.

9. Danum Valley and Sepilok, Borneo

The definition of Borneo is as unique as its wildlife as it occupies a large archipelago between the Indian and Pacific Oceans; partly in Malaysia and partly in Indonesia. Adventurers will trek through rainforests, through swamps and valleys and visit pristine beaches on their search for the Green & Hawksbill turtles, sun bears, orang-utans and pygmy elephants.

10. Galapagos Islands

This incredible archipelago of land and marine systems inspired Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and hosts some of the world’s most unique species. Adventurers visiting these equatorial islands off the western coast of Ecuador will encounter, among other species, the waved albatross and the giant tortoise.

11. Pantanal Wetlands, Brazil

Located in central-western Brazil, the Pantanal is a huge mosaic of seasonally-flooded savannahs and tropical forests that make jaguar encounters challenging and therefore all the more satisfying.

12. Churchill, Arctic Canada

The Arctic North of Canada is the epitome of the pioneer spirit with human settlement a mere speck on the vast tundra. The comparatively milder climate of Churchill sees ice completely melt in summer, temporarily stranding polar bears and creating the perfect viewing opportunity for wildlife enthusiasts.

Chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans have been living for hundreds of thousands of years in their forest, living fantastic lives, never overpopulating, never destroying the forest. I would say that they have been in a way more successful than us as far as being in harmony with the environment.

Jane Goodall

Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books.

David Attenborough
