My grandkids had a blast! Very interactive and plenty to do for all ages! My granddaughter told me, “you and your sister had more fun than we did!” I asked her if she had fun, she said,, “yes but it’s hard not to get stuck on one station because they’re so much fun”

I've been on a handful of Safaris in east Africa and my trip with Ian and Kawira was by far the best. The guides were super accommodating and had great stories to tell. Couldn't have chosen a better way to see the gorillas in Rwanda and would recommend Ian and his crew to anyone!

      About Explora

      Founded in 1993, Explora was born out of the passion to showcase the natural beauty of South America, visiting remote and isolated locations on hikes and rides.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Perhaps the most unique aspect of Explora is the way they directly incorporate lodging. Owning hotels and camps, they operate as an all inclusive experience, providing a truly relaxing and easy way to plan an unforgettable South America active travel vacation.

      South America is a dream destination for many hikers and trekkers - and Explora combines the best of active outdoor travel with premium accommodation, cultural nuances and cuisine. Their unique expertise in some of South America’s most remote and stunning hiking routes make them the perfect choice for adventurous travelers.

      Each destinations itinerary is carefully tailored to showcase exactly what makes the particular region stand out.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Their trips are especially well suited to adventurous travelers. All ages are welcome, however these tours are active and physically challenging, so there is expectation of physical fitness.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Explora is all about showcasing the best of South America. In particular they focus on the regions of Patagonia and Atacama in Chile, Easter Island, The Sacred Valley in Peru, Uyuni in Bolivia, Salta and El Chalten in Argentina.

      How Does it Work?

      They own and operate hotels in Chile, and Peru and exclusive camps in Argentina. From these home bases you can join guided multi-day hikes and rides, of varying physical difficulty level. You’ll often stay in local camps along the way, meeting locals in extremely remote regions.

      Most of their tours are hiking based, though some bike and boat explorations are also offered. They also feature special horseback riding excursions in Patagonia, which allow you to take in the rich equine history of the region, led by a guide and a traditional “gaucho”.

      Why Travel With Them?

      If you’re looking for a different kind of hiking experience, that highlights the ability to get out into remote and isolated areas, and gaining a nuanced insight into the cultures and traditions of South America, Explora could be for you. The idea behind Explora is to get in touch with nature on a different level than other tour companies provide.

      They also have a strong commitment to sustainability, running a conservation program alongside their tourism business. They operate several programs for travelers to learn more about being responsible and are strict about the “leave no trace” policy during their wilderness expeditions.

      Their unique approach is designed to give you the best possible experience, meet fellow travelers as friends, and see a different side of South America led by expert local guides.

      Adventure seekers who have a passion for nature and wildlife will gravitate to Kawira Safaris. They offer both safari tours and lodging for individuals who like a detailed itinerary. They are also family-friendly.
