An Interview With Radheesh, Founder of Leopard Trails Tented Camp Mr. Radheesh Sellamuttu, Managing Director of Leopard Trails. Radheesh recognized from a young age the phenomenal wildlife biodiversity of his country Sri Lanka. Inspired by the golden era of British explorers of early 19th century wild Ceylon, Radheesh left his business career to start a travel business in Sri Lanka. His company, Leopard Trails tented safaris, allows a modern wildlife experience in “spectacular solitude and soothing comfort.”  What do we need to know about Radheesh Sellamuttu?

I am passionate about wildlife, trading stocks, cooking Sri Lankan food, and spending money on experiences! How did you start Leopard Trails? Being immersed in the nocturnal noises...

Mother-Daughter Duo Conquer Patagonia! This mother-daughter duo just returned from a custom Hikers Patagonia Adventure in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile and the Fitz Roy area in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina. Below they share some of their thoughts, highlights and advice from the trip.    "We totally loved our trip! Our hikes with Explora in Torres del Paine and later in El Chalten were terrific! Actually, all of our hiking experiences were outstanding. Perito Moreno and the penguins were awesome too.   Explora was magic and we loved everything about the experience there. Great food, great room with that insane view, great guides, great hikes. It cost a lot but we loved the easy access to everything from there right in the park.   We loved El Chalten. It has a lovely feel to it (a bit like Banff Alberta!). Chalten Suites was lovely—we loved the family owned aspect of it. They...
I Found Colors in India That I'd Never Seen Before in the Rainbow of Places I've Been To! "Better than one in six people on our planet live in India, and four in a hundred live in the U.S. Yet India's conditions are considered extreme, in spite of the fact that as a proportion of the total population they are quite common. I simply wanted to experience the other end of the spectrum of humanity, and though I'm a fairly experienced traveler, I found colors in India that I'd never seen before in the rainbow of places I've been to." Mike and Nani Manning spent 3 weeks exploring India on a custom itinerary that took them from the sands of Rajasthan to the banks of the river Ganges to the foothills of the Himalayas. Their trip was initially inspired by the food trail taken by celeb food critic Anthony Bourdain but quickly morphed into a trip encompassing desert palaces, city walks, and mountain train rides.Rest assured, food was...

Whorton Family Trip to Thailand - Guest Review See what the Whorton family has to say about their 12 day Thailand Family Adventure. From elephants to biking to kayaking and beyond Thailand had a little bit of everything for every member of the Whorton family! What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? Loved Chiang Mai and Railay Beach - very different but each had amazing things to offer. I got my "adventure" in Chiang Mai and my husband got his "beach vacation" down at Railay. Loved the Elephant experience (Patara) in Chiang Mai. An amazing experience and such a well run, caring organization. We learned a lot too! Really liked the bike tour to get to see some parts of true "Thai Living" - actual homes, farms, etc. So peaceful! Also loved kayaking in Railay and we had a lot of fun rock climbing too! Please comment on your local guides: Both women were very different...
