About Us

Real Africa, Real Asia and Real Americas are the travel brands of conservation charity Explorers Against Extinction. They are run by small UK-based company Real World Travel & Conservation.

Real World was first established in 2000. Over the years, its structure has changed. Today it is the charity which takes centre stage, promoting responsible travel as one of many activities to raise awareness about threats to wildlife and wild spaces, and to fund frontline conservation. All the profit from commercial activities including travel supports the running of the charity and enables tree-planting through the Carbon for Conservation scheme.

Made the whole trip stress free so we could really enjoy the experience. Fantastic detail in the planning!

We've travelled several times with Real World over the years, but always on safari to Africa with Paul looking after us. This was the first time we'd visited Asia and Lily designed the most wonderful trip to India - we are already planning a return visit!

Fabulous trip to Thailand with just the right balance of activities and relaxation. Wonderful lodges! Thank you for organising such a superb holiday.
Mr & Mrs L ( Oct, 2015 ) Visited: Thailand
From the first telephone call with Lily Appleby Newby right until our return to England this whole holiday and the information / support / contact with Real World was second to none. The actual holiday in India exploring The Land of The Tigers was five star added to which we were fortunate to see six tigers. The Imperial Hotel in Delhi and The Taj Palace and Towers in Mumbai must rate as two of the best hotels in the world and certainly didn't disappoint! The three Safari lodges were all very good with Samode Safari Lodge being exceptional. We were extremely well looked after all the way by Real World's agents, Travelscope. A holiday which we have no hesitation in recommending. Fantastic!

We booked a holiday to India,a combination of city/cultural experiences and wildlife game drives.lilly of Real World put together a truly bespoke tour encompassing two major cities(Dehli and Mumbai) and three game reserves. Every location was perfect ,the staff incredibally helpful/friendly and the entire experience was well coordinated and delivered. At every stage the holiday was tailored to our specific requirements . This was our second holiday with Real World(previously Real Africa) and my wife and I are already looking forward to our third.
