New trip format
In response to suggestions and feedback from many of our previous travelers, the format of our conservation travel experiences has been broadened.  Now, in addition to ample time in the bush, getting up-close-and-personal with a breathtaking array of wildlife, we have built in new opportunities to meet and know the people and the culture of Africa, with visits to cultural centers, historic sites, native communities, and other exciting and compelling points on each action-filled itinerary. 


New travel partner
We are very excited to introduce our new travel partner, Infinite Safari Adventures, and Alan Feldstein, the owner and founder.   Several members of our Wildlife Center family have traveled with Alan and gotten to know him and his team.  Maybe more importantly, Alan has gotten to know the Wildlife Center of Virginia. He is passionate about Africa, conservation, giving back to the people of Africa and has regularly traveled to Africa for the last 18 years.  He has worked with us to build this initial selection of diverse and compelling destinations.  Whether you are a first-time adventure traveler to the globe-trotting veteran, these custom trips will meet and exceed your every expectation.    Luxury and quality are the hallmarks of every aspect of each itinerary we offer.
