Over the years we have been involved in safari tourism, we noticed a clear trend. Our guests longed for wild experiences. Given the choice between showering inside or beneath the skies, they always chose outside. Or, if choosing to spend the night in a lodge or a sleep out under the stars, most people chose the sleep out. We realised our guests NEEDED to be hosted by wilderness. So we decided to open a portfolio of camps and experiences offering all of the wild with none of the discomfort.
We have called it Everwild and we would love to share it with you!
We are a group of friends made up of conservationists, biologists, entrepreneurs, graphic designers, social impact consultants and investment advisors who got together to build something special in Zambia. Some of us have tourism experience, some of us don’t. What we have in common is that we want to see tourism work and we want people to be touched by the Zambia we love.
Everwild is our group of 5 unique properties geographically spread out but with 3 common traits:
We will always ensure our guests are safe and comfortable (we haven’t lost anyone yet! 😉) BUT we also love to have as much of the ‘outside’ in and around us as possible!
They are located in remote, wilderness spaces. HINT – plan for adventurous drives into camp!
All the camps have a restoration story – there is a background narrative where the camp or site or region was previously declared to be too difficult, too remote or too abandoned yet, they are all back and delivering incredible experiences again.
Our business was built on five pillarsthat govern how we view tourism and run our camps:
An Everwild camp or property is purposed to accomplish something special in its area of influence and operation. It must exist and succeed for more than just our own needs.
We probably could have chosen MUCH easier camps to work with. None of our camps are an easy ride or convenient little hop to get to. That makes our operations hard and the experience of those who visit, wild and special. Just the way we like it.
We’re about memories and experiences that never leave you so everything we do is aimed to achieve that.
Too many wild places have been lost because with all the passion in the world, they weren’t profitable. Sound tourism and business practices that benefit guests and communities are a high priority for us.
The lives of BOTH the people who visit our camps and those who work within them must be changed through their experiences with Ever Wild.
