I have both. Without measuring: the Explorer is larger overall than some hammocks, the Safari is MUCH bigger than the Explorer. All that is listed at the web(regarding length) site is RL length. Going by that, the Safari is only 4" longer than the Explorer, which is in turn 8" longer than the Expedition/UL backpacker. But in reality, the Safari has much more fabric length, way more than the 4". IOW, it has a LOT more sag, it hangs way further under the RL than any other commercial hammock I have seen. Some people think the more sag the more comfortable, at least to a point. I find the Safari extremely comfortable.
