WE are an environmentally and culturally-conscious company steeped in adventure travel, bush survival and nature interpretation.
We're a small force at the moment... but, we're not planning on expanding at a rapid rate, either. We firmly believe that what we offer has to stay genuine and unique, and focused on you, our awesome expedition family, rather than expanding purely because of money or demand.
We've built solid networks and are collaborating with talented folks around the world - outdoor equipment retailers to environmental managers, nature guides, indigenous groups, world travellers, schools, young entrepreneurs, fellow-philanthropists, dreamers, believers, and everyone in-between. We're fostering a family around us, and want you to be part of it. Brace yourselves for an adventure, and come along for the ride ...
After over a decade of international travel - experiencing the world's diverse cultures, environments and magnificent wildlife - we've decided to share our secret spots, now offering epic expeditions and tailored tours to spectacular locations around the world!
From the beauty of Australia's Cape York Peninsula to the chaos of Africa's Great Migration, we've developed a range of truly special, life-changing experiences suited to every type of person.
And, what we're truly passionate about is showing you how you can build more awesome into your lifestyle - and keep it there! By taking you to amazing places and
showing you a diversity of outdoor activities you can do in each, we're convinced you'll leave your expedition a new person :)
The most important aspect driving our business... is our WHY.
The Why for us? We believe that everyone should have an opportunity to spend quality time in the great outdoors - and we're all about figuring out how to do that best, for every situation.
Our expeditions are conceived for delivery in a low-impact manner, ensuring minimal negative disruption of traditional cultures and the natural environment. We're well aware of the impact tourism visitation can have on people and environment, so our "worldwide expeditions" model ensures limited long-term return impacts. It also means variety, which keeps things fresh!
The best part - our world experiences and diverse skill sets allow us to deliver tailored packages to any group, anywhere around the world. If you're in a corporate environment and want team-building experiences, we'll help bring you together in an amazing setting. School camps or development opportunities - right down our alley! And if you want to build your own expedition but just haven't had the time to do it - we'll do it for you. We just want you to spend quality time outdoors, in the most beneficial way.
See that map to your right? Yep, that's our starting point.
It might be ambitious for a new business to list 4 of 7 continents as our "backyard", but we want to set that tone from the beginning. We've done the time abroad, so everything we bring to you is on the merit of our previous experiences.
Within the first year, we'll be offering unique expeditions to:
The most important thing about offering year-round expeditions is understanding the best times to run certain activities in an area.
When it comes to planning trips out a year in advance, it's an immense task. But, we're super stoked with our coming tours, and the variety we've packed in to make each expedition unique!
Some examples of our time-crucial expeditions:
We've travelled far and wide, for work and for play.
We've met amazing people, and established a fantastic global network of outdoors-loving aficionados.
We've climbed to some of the world's highest peaks, and peered into her depths from the lip of volcanoes.
We've covered ground by air, land and sea; had good travels and tough times. But we've learnt from it every single time.
And, we've got environmental and tourism degrees behind us, tour guiding qualifications in multiple countries, have learned bush skills from indigenous tribes and guiding specialists all over the world, and done almost every outdoors-based activity you can think of.
Now though, we're stoked to be bringing it all together into something we're truly passionate about... helping others explore the great outdoors, gain life perspective, and change your lifestyle for the better!
While the overall flavour of this website is focused on our World Expeditions, there's a LOT more going on here than that...
It's important to us that you see our strong values in protecting the natural environment, and in sustainable living. Central to that is how we deliver our expeditions, and/or put together custom experiences under your guidance.
RE: Bookings - We realise it's one thing to purchase a $200 canvas print compared to booking a $3,450 expedition... so we've tried to account for that where possible, using a combination of booking forms (for expeditions) and a shopping cart (for photo orders).
