The Natural Way to Travel

Nature Expeditions International (NEI) is a leader in adventure and experiential travel. We customize vacations and educational learning to destinations in over 45 countries on 7 continents. The expeditions we arrange relate to Adventure, Culture & History, Nature & Wildlife, Family Fun, Special Occasions or anything else in which a client may be interested.

We have been in business for more than 45 years and differentiate ourselves from other travel companies by offering the widest variety of destinations and types of personalized expeditions, as well as greater flexibility on departure dates and superior quality of local guides. Our customized itineraries include accommodations, sightseeing, daily breakfasts, some lunches and dinners and private ground transportation.

NEI is based in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area where we have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We serve clients worldwide.

What Sets Us Apart?

When it comes to travel, you have many options. At NEI, our passion for providing clients with memorable experiences is what makes us better than, and different from, other travel companies.

Because we love to travel and know how enjoyable it is to see new places, try local delicacies and learn about different cultures from experts who have spent a lot of time in those communities, we want you to have fulfilling experiences, whether your expedition takes to you Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, Europe or Polar Regions.

Our commitment to helping you experience pure joy is exemplified by the fact that we customize every itinerary to meet the client’s preferences. What’s more, we work tirelessly – much harder than other travel companies – to ensure that your time spent sightseeing, or engaging in physical activities, family fun, or whatever else you choose to do, is better than you expected it to be.

We took three trips arranged by NEI to Peru, Ecuador and Tanzania. Our private tours, with just the driver/guide, my wife and me, were planned with great attention to detail and helped us enjoy ourselves without having to worry about the logistics. All vacations were spectacular, done very well by the NEI staff and their local contacts. Highly recommend.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nature Expeditions International (NEI) has been in business since 1973. Since then, we have been providing thousands of active, inquisitive travelers with adventurous and educational experiences worldwide related to culture and history, family fun, nature and wildlife, special occasions and more.
Our expeditions stand out from those offered by others in four distinct ways. We offer a greater variety of custom adventures for people of all ages. Those programs include hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, swimming with dolphins, trekking with camels and elephants, ziplining and more. Our cultural experiences go beyond visiting the must-see sights and may include cooking classes, a music seminar, dance lessons or other participatory activities and are highly educational. We also offer travelers the flexibility to depart anytime of their choosing and tailor itineraries to our clients' interests, desired activity levels and budgets.  
We employ the best-informed and friendliest guides you’ll find anywhere. On many expeditions, you’ll have several local guides who each provide you with insights to his or her area’s natural and cultural attractions. If you’re interested in a particular subject (e.g., birding, botany), we work closely with you to ensure that your guide’s knowledge level, experience and educational background match your preferences.
With few exceptions, our travelers reside in the United States and Canada. They come from diverse backgrounds, are well-educated, inquisitive, enthusiastic and in search of adventure and in heightening their understanding of interesting places. Our clients travel as couples, in families, solo, in groups of friends and in organizational groups such as zoos and theater classes. The common thread among NEI travelers is that they are explorers eager to immerse themselves in environments completely different from their own.
As with group tours, our independent tours include airport transfers and sightseeing excursions with expert guides. The NEI traveler, however, receives more personalized service than people on group tours. Additionally, we can customize itineraries to travelers’ activity preferences, choices of travel dates and categories of accommodations.
