Adventure Travel Blogging


Chris developed his love of Africa and native culture living in a rural Namibian village for two years while teaching in the U.S. Peace Corps. From the jungles of Uganda to the Kalahari desert, he has travelled to remote corners of the African continent on numerous private and self-guided safaris in eight countries. Among the most adventurous trips he organized and led was for a group of high school students on a month-long journey through South Africa and Namibia. International travel, conservation and community development have shaped his life and formed the basis of his core values. Chris' enthusiasm for sharing his knowledge and experience to design transformational travel opportunities to Africa led him to Wildland Adventures. Outside of travel he enjoys climbing mountains, backcountry skiing and mountain biking throughout the Pacific Northwest. Chris is a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician and an active volunteer with the Snohomish County Helicopter Rescue Team.

Your Serengeti Safari and The Great Migration: A month-by-month guide

Your Serengeti Safari and The Great Migration: A month-by-month guide
The Serengeti: no other place on Earth is more synonymous with an African safari. The name alone conjures up images of vast plains teeming with exotic wildlife. The Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania is home to one of the most spectacular mammal migrations on Earth. This park is over 5,700 square miles (about the size of Connecticut) with the great Serengeti Ecosystem about twice that size. Each year, an astounding 1.5 million blue wildebeests and more than 200,000 zebra trace a clockwise migration loop through the greater Serengeti ecosystem in search of better grazing and water sources. If all of these wildebeest and zebra were to each run in front of your Land Rover at 1 per second, it would take almost 3 weeks for all of them to cross the road! Over the course of the full migratory loop, the animals can cover up to 1,800 miles – that’s...
