World Sufi Spirit Festival If you're planning a Wildland Adventure to India and you will be traveling through Rajasthan in February, ask us about making arrangements for you to attend the World Sufi Spirit Festival, one of the most beautiful cultural experiences unique to India. "Be happy for this moment. The moment is your life" - Omar Khayyam I always seek out opportunities to experience music when I travel because I love live performances. It's another looking glass into the culture and an opportunity to meet fun and interesting local people. Usually held each year in mid-February, the World Sufi Spirit [Music] Festival we attended in 2014 was a highlight of our trip in India, and one of the most stunning cultural events and music festivals I've ever experienced.

Why visit Cape Town with a guide? We asked our Cape Town guide Doug Thompson, pictured here with his wife Sarah, to tell us why Cape Town, and why Cape Town with a guide. Why Cape Town ? Cape Town is the perfect gateway to Southern Africa. It's a gentle landing for those travelers who are on their first adventure to Africa. Many guests are surprised at its cosmopolitan feel , its vibrancy and the Mediterranean atmosphere. It is unmistakably Africa, but for those heading into 'darkest' Africa on safari , it offers a colorful arrival that often takes ones' breath away. Cape Town has the variety of settings that few other cities offer. Within a radius of 40 minutes drive, one can experience spectacular coastline, majestic mountains, semi-arid ecozones, and the beautiful winelands. As far as cities go ( 4.5 million people) , we can get out of the city onto the beach, into the forest, up...

Village Life in Guatemala One of my favourite aspects of travelling is meeting the people who live in the country. That's why a highlight of our recent trip to Guatemala was visiting a small community, to see their school and have lunch in a farmhouse. Before leaving the city of Antigua, where we'd stayed for two days, we asked our guide, Fidensio, if we could buy a couple of soccer balls to take as a gift to the school. He arranged for us to stop at a stall in a local market on our way out of town, where a local businessman was selling soccer balls and other goods. After making our purchase, we drove about an hour out of Antigua along winding roads, finally pulling onto a dusty lane. We watched as farmers planted and fertilized their fields by hand. Horses are expensive, and the farms are small enough that the work can...
