The story of Intrepid Travel's inception from two avid backpackers, a typewriter and a kitchen table represents the perfect anecdote for a travel company now offering thousands of bespoke small group adventure travel itineraries across the world to over 100,000 travellers.
This intrinsic desire and organic attitude towards creating the very best travel experiences ensures travelling with Intrepid Travel today consists of off the beaten path experiences catering to a varied range of traveller desires, helping you traverse the world of travel and all its associated logistical concerns with a full-service travel agency offering taking care of every step of your journey.
Intrigued by the landscapes of Tanzania or Rwanda and the wildlife spotting opportunities? How about meeting sea lions in the Galapagos? Or learning about orangutans in Borneo? No matter where you choose to go, a trip with Intrepid Travel is your ticket to see the animal world like never before.
Beyond their always-on approach to responsible travel, in 2014, Intrepid led the industry on animal welfare by being the first global tour operator to end elephant rides and by raising awareness to the cruelty of lion walks. When you travel with Intrepid, you can travel with peace of mind knowing that your next adventure is an animal-friendly one.
When it comes to choosing a destination, the options are endless. Take the Galapagos Islands, for example, where you can watch colourful, bizarre and beautiful creatures in their natural habitat. Or there’s Borneo which offers rare treats for nature lovers: see orangutans in Sepilok, proboscis monkeys at Labuk Bay and search for wildlife while cruising the Kinabatangan River.
Another unmissable hot spot is Africa – a haven for spotting your favourite creatures. The first time you see a zebra or a lion in Kenya or Tanzania is a moment you’ll always remember, and a battle between predator and prey will have you on the edge of your seat. Better yet, if you’re an avid walker, a gorilla trek in Rwanda might be the best adventure for you. Just don’t forget your binoculars!
Equal parts memorable and exciting; these animal encounters are best shared with like-minded travellers. You’ll be left with lasting memories no matter where you visit with Intrepid.
