Hutchinson would love for all of Earth’s inhabitants to plant a tree on an annual basis or find a leisure pursuit that helps them to reconnect with nature and the world around them. Through Wild Ark, Mark is able to reacquaint others with their true selves as well as nature. It is his firm belief that the more people are exposed to the wilderness, the more likely it is that they will themselves become advocates of a conservation mindset. Wild Ark aims to expose tourists to a wide range of natural environments in the hopes that their experiences will propel them to become even more eco-conscious.

The entire business model of Wild Ark is centered around expanding travelers’ encounters with wilderness and their appreciation of the greater world around them. This travel firm provides high-end and nature intensive travel packages that take their clients deep into the Bush as well the outer areas of Africa. These trips are luxe but also right in the thick of the surrounding natural environments. Wild Ark has Bush trips in Africa that spend 10 days traveling on dirt roads with local guides that offer a high level of insight into the incredibly special area that is the African wilderness.
