Is Travel to Peru Safe? Peru, a country of magnificent people, culture, customs, geography and adventure is our number one pick for family's introductory experience to South America (Read more in our blog Peru vs Patagonia: Choosing the Right Multigenerational Trip). While our guests prepare for their upcoming and/or future trips to Peru there are several main travel questions that we are often asked about. Below is a list of the most common questions we receive, addressed for travelers to feel informed, confident and, most of all, safe while traveling to this enchanting country. 1) ALTITUDE SICKNESS: Am I going to get altitude sickness while in Peru? How do I avoid altitude sickness? If I know I’m prone to altitude sickness, and still want to visit Peru, what can I do? The pleasures of trekking in the Andean highlands surrounded by the sheer geographic splendor and unique cultures that call the high Andes home, is...

Wildland Alumni in Botswana and Zimbabwe Patti and John Gerber are no strangers to travel with Wildland Adventures having travelled with us in Peru and Patagonia. However, they wanted to travel a bit further afield this time around and chose our Okavango and Zimbabwe safari. Patti and John also added our 4-day Rwanda Gorilla Tracking Extension. Below are highlights from their trip review: "All of the places that we stayed were excellent, although Pelo was my favorite." What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? "Loved the entire trip. Each country had different things to offer. We had excellent guides on all legs of the trip. Probably my favorite was Rwanda. Not only did you have the amazing hike to the gorillas, the gorillas themselves, but also the people of Rwanda the stunning countryside." Our frequent travellers know that here at Wildland Adventures, we love working to create your trip of a lifetime...or two...or three...or more! "This was...

Wild South Africa! Abby S. and Steve B. chose an off-the-beaten-path custom itinerary for their South African holiday this past Fall.  A particular highlight from their trip was spending time in the Drakensberg mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The steep cliffs of these mountains surround Lesotho and are so rugged that there is only one break where a 4x4 road could be built to access the mountain kingdom at Sani Pass. "The hiking is superb. A variety of trails, in terms of length, altitude gain/loss, and views, depart directly from the resort. The views are stunning; kind of like the highlands of Scotland. Most trails are well-marked, and a map purchased at reception was serviceable. We saw elands, baboons, and raptors while hiking, and beautiful flowers." Abby and Steve also enjoyed seeing some spectacular wildlife viewing at Tanda Tula Lodge in Timbavati private game reserve as well as at Phinda Mountain Lodge...

Happy New Year from Siem Reap! The Doehring family just returned from a Southeast Asia adventure that started in 2015 and spanned Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. They didn't even return to the states until 2016 :) Starting in Northern Vietnam the Doehrings explored the countryside by bike, Halong Bay by boat, and Hanoi by street food vendor (the best way to do it!) After Vietnam, they jetted over to Luang Prabang in Laos where they learned about rice production and spent 2 full days living and interacting with elephants at the Elephant Conservation Center.  Paul says, " Luang Prabang is a beautiful city and one I could see myself living in. The architecture, the food, the people - everything was great!" Janet emebellished on the rice experience saying, "I'll never take rice for granted again!"  The Doehrings continued on to Southern Laos and explored the 4,000 islands. It's a  quick hop from there to Cambodia where...
