Why Us

The nature and adventure travel specialists

Wilderness Explorers was established in 1994 offering trips in Guyana and has since evolved into a full-service Destination Management Company providing seamless travel services across Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and the Caribbean.

Our passion is for off-the-beaten path, the unknown, the unusual and quirky mixed with adventure and nature. We love remote and pristine environments and working to benefit local communities. Nothing embodies this more than the last frontier of South America: Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana.

But we aren’t averse to a bit of luxury either, and so we have merged some of the best Caribbean hotels into our carefully planned trips, to add a touch of indulgence. Even in the Caribbean, we feature less-known islands and search for the unexpected treasures that you won’t find easily.

We have you covered! You can travel with peace of mind because we have a US dollar public liability insurance and the most experienced and knowledgeable team to ensure smooth travel arrangements, even in the most remote areas.

Our company policy
Wilderness Explorers promises to promote ecologically sensitive tourism through a responsible and concerned attitude towards the environment. We will provide the maximum benefit to the local communities by operating in an honest, thoughtful and concerned manner towards their customs and involving the communities so as to afford them the greatest financial benefit possible. At the same time we will offer professional tourism services of an international standard to our clientele.
