Sobek’s 40th Anniversary

Originally two different companies, Sobek and Mountain Travel joined forces in 1979 to create Mountain Travel Sobek. The Ultimate Tanzania Safari Contest marks the celebration of Sobek’s 40th anniversary and alludes to the roots that Sobek has in Africa.  Today MTS runs dozens of trips to Africa including safaris in Kenya, Botswana, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.


About the Sponsors

Mountain Travel Sobek

Mountain Travel was founded in 1969 to promote the exploration, enjoyment and protection of the world’s mountain wilderness areas by enabling travelers to experience them for themselves. Using a knowledgeable team with backcountry expertise, Mountain Travel’s founders led the first commercial trek to Nepal’s Himalaya, quickly followed by the first sailing cruise to the Galápagos Islands in 1970 and many other “firsts” in the years to come. Four years later, the international rafting company Sobek Expeditions was launched on a parallel path.  Today, Mountain Travel Sobek is partnered with National Geographic and consistently recognized as a top travel company by Outside, Men’s Journal, and Travel + Leisure.
