Intrepid Travel launches first trip in Comoros with focus on endemic wildlife

TORONTO — Intrepid Travel is launching its first-ever trip on the Comoros Islands – the 121st country in the global tour operator’s portfolio.

The Comoros Islands, which sit a few degrees south of the equator off the coast of Eastern Africa, are home to many unique and rare endemic species.

The nine-day ‘Comoros Wildlife Expedition’, starting from US$3,125 per person for departures beginning in August 2023, will depart from the capital city of Moroni before venturing to Itsamia and Mwali, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve that is home to the second highest marine diversity in the world. Over the course of a week, travellers will see wildlife ranging from humpback whales to the Livingston Flying Fox, and also meet several Comorians eager to share their home with visitors.

The Comoros expedition is one of 16 new wildlife trips and experiences Intrepid is launching in 2023.

Notable additions include a visit to the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust on Day 2 of ‘Victoria Falls to Kruger’, an experience that gives travellers a rare glimpse into wildlife crime investigations while supporting anti-poaching efforts. For the first time Intrepid is also bringing travellers to a gorilla naming ceremony in Rwanda on its nine-day Gorilla Naming Ceremony & Uganda trip.

Intrepid says it has been a leader in responsible wildlife tourism, designing tours that aid in wildlife conservation and ecological preservation for more than 30 years.

In addition to the 16 new travel experiences and trips for 2023, Intrepid has also reviewed and refreshed all 140+ of its existing wildlife tours to include more opportunities for travellers to get closer to nature and ensure the company maximizes its positive impact on the communities and environment.
