Opting For Adventure & Giving Back Wildland is opting to close our office this Black Friday to encourage our staff, friends and family to get out, give thanks and enjoy the wild. 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...
Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia This week our Wild Zambia Safari was featured in the New York Times as one of "10 African Adventures Answering the Call of the Wild and Comfort."  Here's what the New York Times had to say:  "For travelers seeking a more active safari than most drive-focused itineraries, Wildland Adventures has introduced a 10-day Wild Zambia Safari that includes long hikes and passage by canoe as well as four-wheel drive safari vehicles in visits to South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Trips start at Victoria Falls and are largely divided between two remote but comfortable wilderness camps. Travelers will walk the five miles between them (with luggage shuttled forward), tracking buffalo, giraffe and elephant en route. The adventurous can add an optional night of camping under the stars in South Luangwa to the itinerary." Our Wild Zambia Safari is truly a one-of-a-kind adventure. Wildland founders, Kurt and Anne Kutay, scouted...

Beyond the Galapagos - Experience Raja Ampat and The Coral Triangle The sun rises and sets at 6:30am and 6:30pm every day along the equator all year, every year where two stunning archipelagos of unique life and great marine biodiversity tempt adventure seekers to experience their natural wonders. Every sunrise and sunset is an inspiring and life-affirming sight to behold even if it only flirts with our senses for a fleeting moment at the center of the planet. On opposite sides of the globe sit the Galapagos, that Darwinian ecological mecca of rugged volcanic terrain and highly adapted animal life, and it’s lesser known sister nation in Natural Selection, Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Raja Ampat sits at the heart of The Coral Triangle and is home to the most diverse, exceptional and plentiful underwater species of coral and marine life in the world. So stunning, it has been dubbed “Heaven on Earth” for its paradisiacal beauty. “Bucket” lists and “Top-Islands-to-Visit” lists and...

A Life Transformed by Southeast Asia I stood at the window on the top floor of the skyscraper in the heart of Bangkok looking out at the chaos on the streets below. It was hot and smoggy, and it had taken us about two hours to travel just a few miles to get here. I loved it.  It was 1995 and I was a university dean visiting Bangkok for the first time to meet with corporate partners and recruit potential students for a new international doctoral program I was overseeing. It wasn’t my first trip to Asia, nor was it the last. I had traveled to Japan in the summer of 1971 to attend an academic conference. It was also hot and smoggy and crowded and chaotic. It was, I thought, the worst example of creeping Western materialism taking over the world. I hated it. What was different between my experiences in 1971 and 1995? Me. I...
