Happy Holidays to each and all We received this delightful holiday letter from a family of alumni travelers and felt it was too good not to share: "This year a 17 day Tanzanian Safari with Wildland Adventures exceeded our greatest expectations. We spent long, full days in Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Parks where the extraordinary teeming abundance of wildlife led to up close and personal encounters with lions (100+), elephants, leopards, cheetah and way too many wildebeest, hippos, giraffes, impala, ect, to count.  And we had a private tour! Our driver-guide spotted game at every turn while driving in our open top Toyota Land Cruiser on Tanzania's infamous roads. In addition to wildlife sightings, we had fascinating encounters with a few of the 120 tribal groups, including a walkabout with the primitive Hadzabe hunter/gatherers as they sought game with bow and arrows. Seeing a snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro as we left was the perfect...

We have a lot to be thankful for as we approach our 30th anniversary and what better time to say thanks than Thanksgiving? This year we're giving thanks to an incredible cause and you can too! A young Wildland traveler, 12-year-old Jamie Eisner, who recently returned from a family safari in Tanzania has taken on the monumental task of raising money to build a well for a school she visited. “Before I visited Tanzania, I took for granted that I have easy access to water whenever I want, air conditioning, plenty of food, medicine, a great education, and so much more. The children at Mikocheni have none of this, but we can give them something that would change their lives,” explains Jamie. “With the well, the kids will do...
