Who we are
Explore Nature is an owner–run company that designs and conducts personalised wildlife Safaris in Southern and East Africa. All itineraries are tailor-made by us in conjunction with our guests and are personally guided by Martin, who has been a professional Safari guide since 1996. With your help and our expertise we create individualised journeys specifically suited to your wishes. With our years of experience and intimate knowledge of the destinations combined with an appreciation of your goals we can create a unique safari for you that will be remembered forever.
We meticulously arrange private guided safaris to the best wilderness areas and national parks across Southern and East Africa. Whether its being immersed in the sights and sounds of the Great Migration in the Serengeti, the solitude and beauty of the surreal landscapes of the Namib desert, drifting slowly past elephants in a canoe on the Zambezi river, patiently searching for an elusive endemic bird or animal, or listening to hippos grunting while watching the sun setting over a lagoon in the Okavango Delta, everything is possible.
These experiences are greatly enhanced by being accompanied by a professional private guide. Martin passionately shares his wealth of knowledge and experience, and works tirelessly with the local operators, camp staff and guides, to ensure that your safari experience runs seamlessly and that your individual interests and wellbeing are prioritised every step of the way. Having an appreciation of your expectations and knowledge of what you have already experienced ensures focus can be maintained throughout your entire safari.
Africa’s natural history and culture is very rich and diverse and has many facets that your private guide can help to reveal during your journey with the aim of weaving together the myriad of experiences into one richly, woven fabric that is your tailor-made safari. This is done in a comprehensive and informative manner, yet with much humour, laughter and fun. Martin is a vocational guide as it is his passion – he loves nothing more than to be with people in the bush, to experience nature with them and help them interpret and understand it.
Together with a professional, carefully selected team of associates in Africa and in Australia, where we are based, we are able to take care of all aspects of your journey to Africa. Martin’s wife Jennifer also assists in responding to enquiries and provides a contact point while safaris are running. Jennifer spent 5 years living and travelling in Africa, and worked with Martin leading camping safaris and in some of the most luxurious lodges in Southern and East Africa. Part of this time was spent running the reservations department for a group of three luxury lodges in the Serengeti in Tanzania.
