Emphasis during the trips is not only on seeing and experiencing, but also on understanding the complex natural interactions at play, and the challenges of preserving unique ecosystems.

Because of the positive impact conservation tourism can have in developing countries, part of our proceeds  are used to directly support conservation projects we visit during each trip. This hands-on, personal approach builds a relationship between travellers and local conservation heroes that will last for years to come.

Our first expedition is to West Papua, Indonesia, the lesser-known half of the Island of New Guinea. We travel aboard a beautiful "Phinisi" schooner to explore the islands of Raja Ampat, land on the wild beaches of the Bird's Head Peninsula where giant leatherbacks nest, and swim with whale sharks in secluded Cendrawasih Bay...
