Launched only this month, our Explorer-in-Residence tours feature unique itineraries to hidden corners of the world. These itineraries take travelers to out of the way places. Most have been built in consultation with our Explorers-in-Residence. Some are expensive, some require really hard work, and some are simply unfairly caricatured in the press. All promise a unique experience. All of our tours are carefully managed by our local offices and local expert guides to ensure you have a safe and supported adventure.
Kensington CEO Jeff Willner and the first Explorer in Residence Mikael Strandberg recently undertook a scouting mission to The Democratic Republic of the Congo to assess its potential and readiness as a destination for intrepid travellers. Congo itineraries – featuring endangered Eastern Lowland Gorillas, Pygmy tribes and the Nyiragongo volcano – will be the first offered in the Explorers-in-Residence series. Other itineraries under development will include camel trekking experience across the Oman desert, walking safari through Maasai lands, arctic exploration and adventures in Yemen .
