Cherri Briggs


Cherri has had an appetite for adventure and a love of wild places since she was a child riding horses and hunting rattlesnakes on a remote cattle ranch in Nevada. She founded Explore Inc. in 1992 to offer unique African travel experiences that include canoeing Zambia’s Lower Zambezi River, volunteering at a community project in Zimbabwe (both easily combined on a single trip to the two countries), and running with zebra and giraffe on horseback across Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Cherri has homes in Botswana, Zambia, and Colorado and a deep first-person knowledge of even remote corners of southern Africa. She books directly with service providers, cutting out middlemen to ensure that her clients get great value and that Explore has complete control of itineraries, from beginning to end. Cherri has worked in conservation for decades and has served on the boards of several African conservation organizations. She works only with lodges that practice the best conservation practices and support local communities. In 2013 she was appointed Honorary Consul to the USA by the Government of Zambia, and in 2014 she became the first non-citizen to be appointed to the Botswana Tourism Organization.

Trips start at $800 per day for two travelers.
