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...
Why Traveling to South Africa and Namibia in 2016 is a Great Deal There has not been a better time to plan your adventures in Namibia or safaris in South Africa. Recent currency fluctuations have resulted in the South African rand and the Namibian dollar (which is pegged to the rand) holding a highly favorable exchange rate against the dollar and euro. This means that your money goes much further in this region than at any point in the last 5 years! As of January 2016, $1 now purchases R16.50; more than twice as much as in 2013 when $1 purchased R8.50. Domestic prices in South Africa and Namibia have not yet had time to adjust to the economic situation meaning that inflation has been kept in check (meaning cheap prices on safaris). “South Africa's depreciating currency has so far had little impact on inflation” [Reuters, Dec 14, 2015]                              ...
Haber Family Journey Through Thailand and Cambodia - Guest Review The Haber family traveled to Thailand and Cambodia with us in December on an epic adventure in Southeast Asia. They asked us to help plan a trip centered around one very important event - a wedding! Jon's brother was getting married in the town of Khon Kaen and they wanted to explore the region before the big day. We had some big shoes to fill and while the wedding was certainly the highlight it sounds like the day with elephants wasn't too far behind :) Here's what they had to say about their trip: What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? We enjoyed so many parts of the trip. The cooking class in Chaing Mai was excellent, definitely a favorite part of the trip. The day at the Baanchang Elephant Park was wonderful. Spending a day on motorcycles in Cambodia driving through the jungle was incredible. Seeing...

All Around India - Guest Review All Around India was the name of the custom trip to India we gave to an intrepid group of 5 Wildland travelers who wandered all over India for 22 days. They started in the North and visited Delhi and the Taj Mahal before setting off in search of tigers in Ranthambhore National Park. From there they jetted south to the east coast of India where they toured cardamom and tea plantations, trekked to waterfalls, and saw elaborate Hindu temples. They ended their trip with a journey to the UNESCO caves of Ellora and Ajanta before spending some time in the heart of Bollywood, Mumbai. Check out what they have to say about their experience!  What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? The Taj Mahal really was as spectacular as its reputation has it, and is a must-see sight. We also enjoyed Munnar as a welcome respite after...
