FarOut Wilderness is the brainchild of Sam Morris and Abbie Morris, who met in Malawi and have spent the last decade exploring the African continent and building a life together, recently moved to Canada, welcoming their daughter Phoebe Nyasa Morris into the world. We bring years of experience running tourism operations and the service sector and our desire to provide the best customer service possible.
Sam Morris: Drawing on years of experience working in the tourism sector from a dive shop to running operations for Malawis biggest tour operator he has seen and done all the behind the scenes work you can come up with to keep operations running seamlessly. The engine behind the FarOut brand, he loves the outdoors and spends as much time as possible in the forests with his girls and dogs.
Abbie Morris: The steadying hand and questioning mind – whilst always up for an adventure and a trip, sometimes has to act as the reigns to steer things in the right direction. Abbie loves to spend as much time with the wind in her face, whether its a hike, bike or a long horse ride!
History of FarOut
FarOut to us has a deeper meaning, it explains the length we will go to ensure our customers are always happy. It doesn’t matter how ‘FarOut’ the idea is, we will find a way to achieve it, it doesnt matter how ‘FarOut’ the job is – we will get it done. FarOut was first conceived in 2014 through our first business – a property management and construction company based in Lilongwe, Malawi. We found and grew a niche in the market for dedicated property services and bespoke construction projects and grew the business from an idea to company employing 40+ people and building projects for high end boutique hotels and lodges. After we made the decision to move to Canada, we decided to let FarOut Property go, but we are proud to say she found new owners and is still flying the FarOut flag strong.
