About Matt Wright
Raised on the rugged plains of Australia, Matt Wright has done plenty of jobs — horse wrangler, Australian Army soldier, crocodile egg collector — that helped develop his passion and skills for a career as a helicopter pilot, wildlife relocator and award-winning tourism operator. The star of National Geographic’s hit TV show Outback Wrangler, Matt tracks down, captures, and transports a diverse range of dangerous animals, including crocodiles, wild buffalo and even polar bears, that are posing a threat to people. As a chopper pilot he is able to access areas that would otherwise be impossible to reach. Matt’s goal, he says, is based on the preservation of wildlife: to remove and relocate problem animals rather than kill them.
His unique outback lifestyle and knowledge of helicopters, boats and airboats has led him to develop some of the most unique tourism experiences in the world, in Matt’s Explore the Wild Tour Series.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Update 25th March 2020
At Matt Wright, Explore the Wild tours, the most important thing to us is the health and safety of our customers, staff, and communities. Our management team have been closely monitoring the developments and advice provided around COVID-19. Currently we are working hard to respond to emails and cancellations whilst reassessing our options to launch new experiences that still meet the evolving government restrictions.
Following recent advice, together with a number of new restrictions initiated by the Northern Territory and Australian Federal Governments (Northern Territory border closures from 4pm yesterday and restrictions on non-essential travel and activities), tours will be suspended until further notice as we continue to monitor the situation. We know this news is disappointing for customers with current bookings in the near future, but trust you will understand our decision.
All customers with affected travel under the current government advice will be provided with credit notes and our team will assist them to re-book their travel for a later date.
We thank all of our customers for their patience and understanding during these uncertain times and will continue to provide regular updates as the COVID-19 situation progresses.
Take Care and stay safe.
