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.

We are excited to share that we will have some tour options running for Northern Territory residents from the 15th of May at our Top End Safari Camp location!

As the Northern Territory Borders are still closed within Australia along with International travel restrictions, any 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, support and understanding during these uncertain times and will continue to provide regular updates as the COVID-19 situation progresses.
