El Mundo Safaris is part of El Mundo an educational organization committed to exploring our planet, conserving and protecting environments and wildlife, our various expeditions and adventures aim to promote conservation and sustainable development. The company is a part of Chile to Kili, an organization founded in 2007 which promoted an around-the-world cycling initiative undertaken by Elvis Munis, inspired by Ganghi’s famous quotation “be the change you want to see in the world”. Elvis biked across 57 countries in an effort to inspire action to promote conservation and to fund scholarships for disadvantaged youth.
With this same passion and vision El Mundo safaris is now born with the aim of offering fellow travelers active and engaging packages that are environmentally responsible and incorporate leisure, adventure, education, cultural exchange as well as exploration. We believe in tourism that promotes conservation and natural resource management, that gives back to the local communities and that provides guests with engaging and fulfilling experiences.
“Travel with a Purpose” is a key ethos of the company and El Mundo Safaris supports our non-profit Cycle School initiative. This exciting project offers leadership and sustainable development training to local communities. It also offers interested tourists the opportunity to participate in Action Day projects: learning from local communities, contributing their own expertise and genuinely investing in the people and the places visited. By traveling with a purpose we can all be the change we wish to see in the world.
MEET THE MAN BEHIND EL MUNDO SAFARIS
El Mundo Safaris was founded and is run by Elvis Munis. Elvis grew up in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro and has always been a natural adventurer. He made his first ascent of the great Mt. Kilimanjaro while still a school boy. Since then his desire to explore has taken him world-wide, driven in part also by his passion for the environment. He has worked as teacher/trainer in ecology and conservation, led tours and cycled solo through most African countries.
He recently found himself undertaking an epic cycling journey through 57 countries, traversing huge distances and harsh terrain alone in order to raise funds and awareness for ecological education in Tanzania, and to learn more about international environmental and conservational issues.

It is with this passion, rich experience and determination that he leads his team of experienced guides, leaders, naturalists and trainers who will help you to achieve your own dream to learn about, experience and explore the world!

I have an extensive experience in capacity building and environmental education and awareness, as well as a specialized touristic guide. I love to explore and discuss the natural world around us, even better if outdoors: walking, biking, kayaking or just sitting by the campfire.
Bicycle Tour Leader
In 2009 I began the Big Africa Cycle, cycling from England to South Africa. I finished in 2012, having cycled over 34,000km through 30 countries. At some point I might just cross over the Atlantic and embark on a trip through the Americas, but my current focus is to write a book about the African experience.Leaving in Tanzania, would be happy to share my experience with other travelers in Africa and beyond on bike tours.
