Father-Son Team Tackle Inca Trail

Father-Son Team Tackle Inca Trail
Re-trace the steps of 10 time alumni traveler, John, and his son Robby, who recently returned from a stellar father-son journey into the high Andes and along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.   “We are loyal to Wildland, having taken ~11 trips with you over the past 10 years. You always do a great job for us!   Gretchen did an outstanding job of putting together an itinerary that met our needs and ensured our satisfaction.  As usual, you handled all the details perfectly. We enjoyed virtually everything - Cusco has the history, the excitement, the food and the cultural attractions; the Sacred Valley helped immerse us in the Inca culture and exposed us to fabulous ruins, the Inca Trail was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was both challenging and supremely rewarding.  I would not have changed a thing. Our guide, Fisher did a great job throughout. He was knowledgeable about...

Meet Your Guides: Arvind Khare

Meet Your Guides: Arvind Khare
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of adventure trips to India is the guides. We know how important good guide is to a trip and we put a lot of effort into finding the best guides for every area that we travel to. We focus on using local guides in each area, ensuring that these guides possess a seemingly unlimited wealth of knowledge about their area of expertise. The last time I traveled to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better. Arvind is a local favorite at Khajuraho, a spectacular complex of Jain and Hindu temples located in Madhya Pradesh. Khajuraho is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one that shouldn't be missed on your trip to India - especially with a guide like Arvind who can masterfully weave tales and bring the complex to life.  WHERE ARE YOU...

Dispatch from the African Bush: Zimbabwe

Dispatch from the African Bush: Zimbabwe
Greetings from the deep bush of Africa! My first week back in Africa has been a whirlwind tour through Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. I've visited lodges, seen an incredible amount of wildlife and met so many friendly and welcoming people. In the past five days I've scouted 13 different lodges and camps to help discover some new and authentic places for our travelers to stay and visit in Zimbabwe. Seeing all the properties we choose for our trips and meeting the people behind them has helped me understand why our safaris in Africa are award-winning.  My highlights have been close encounters with elephants drinking out of the swimming pool at Nehimba, stalking Cape Buffalo at Camelthorn, close viewing of a pair of cheetah before boarding the elephant express out of the park for my Zambia safari.    I'm currently ensconced at Chundukwa Lodge and being very well taken care of by the owners Gail and Doug.
