Bolsover has a strong focus on Francophone Africa, including places U.S. travelers rarely venture, like the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Madagascar. While wildlife viewing is a key component of many trips he plans, so too is philanthropy, which is often critical to conservation. "The current groundswell in environmental awareness has led to our clients tending to make more careful and conscious choices on how to travel and who to travel with," Bolsover says. "Clients ask a lot more questions on what positive or negative impact their travels will have. As a result, many of the threads that connect a trip together — suppliers of accommodation, transfers, and tours — are each addressing their own impact credentials." His bespoke trips often take people beyond the places they thought it was possible to visit. He's lately been smitten by Madagascar. "The country continues to astound and perplex me in equal measures," Bolsover says. "On each visit I marvel at the remarkable tenacity and resourcefulness of the Malagasy people, the incredible diversity, and truly unique fauna and flora. There are few destinations as compelling and beguiling."

"I've worked with Will and the Natural World Safaris team for years now because they are more than professional — they care. They've been to the spectacular destinations they recommend and know how to shape the unique experiences I want from them. Special requests? No problem. They work with locals to deliver the activity or location that makes the trips pop. If there's a problem, just send an email from the road and within no time at all it's resolved by my agent. But there's never a problem attributable to Will's team because they are so careful and attentive from the moment I reach out to plan a trip. The Africa specialists have never steered me wrong, and trips to other parts of the world arranged through Natural World Safaris have been equally amazing." - Marvin Peguese
