Wilderness Journeys is an adventure travel and ecotourism company.
Wilderness Journeys was founded in September 2000 to provide sustainable tourism, allowing tourists to meet local people and experience their customs and culture.
Wilderness Journeys is the first UK operator to feature the new Koiyaki Wilderness Camp, which has been set up to provide revenue for the Koiyaki Guiding School. The camp is the first community-owned ecolodge in the wild north of the Masai Mara.
Wilderness Journeys works on community conservation in Northern Kenya  to help create a network of community-managed wildlife conservancies from the eastern escarpments of the Great Rift Valley to the lower reaches of the Tana River.
Wilderness Journeys was named a Highly Commended Tour Operator in the 2006 World Responsible Travel Awards and as the top UK’s company in the 2008 Guardian Ethical Travel Awards.
Nature Conservation Projects
Wilderness Journeys works with the Wilderness Foundation UK, a wilderness conservation organization. Together they have set up an Environment & Community Fund which provides financial support and consultancy to conservation and tourism development projects around the world.
