The Zimmerman family connecting in Cuba.

The Zimmerman family connecting in Cuba.
Considering travel to Cuba? Check out this trip review and travel tips with images from the Zimmerman family, 5x alumni travelers having been on Wildland Adventures to Costa Rica, Patagonia, India, Kenya and Peru. They asked us if we could arrange a short weekend-to-weekend adventure to Cuba with their adult son and his partner. They viewed this custom trip to Cuba as their first of more adventures to the island so they decided to stay together as a family in an apartment and focus exclusively on exploring Havana in depth. Jeff was specifically interested in pursuing his interest in drumming and everyone in the family wanted to learn all about Cuba. They also wanted to have time for independent exploration beyond the people-to-people guided connections we planned for them each day. Their trip review will give you a good idea of what to expect on our custom adventures to Cuba designed according to each...

Sue and Carmi Explore China

Sue and Carmi Explore China
Three-time Wildland alums Sue and Carmi came to us last year asking, "what about China?" What about China indeed! Even though China isn't listed on our website, Asia PD Kelsey had spent time traveling in China and was excited to design an itinerary in the land of dragons and emperors.  Sue and Carmi explored an impressive variety of what China has to offer from the Great Wall to Tiger Leaping Gorge to the Terracotta Warriors to riding the rails through the Chinese countryside. Their 3 week trip took them from the capitol city iof Beijing all the way to the Southern metropolis of Shanghai in an adventurous loop. Enough from me, I'll let Sue and Carmi do the talking. Here's a little more from their trip report: What were the main reasons you chose this itinerary?We have never traveled in Asia, and thought that it would be amazing to actually walk...

Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls, Hwange and Mana Pools - Guest Review

Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls, Hwange and Mana Pools - Guest Review
Rich and Cathy Decker almost didn’t make it out of the United States thanks to a Delta Airlines computer crash that grounded 2,000 flights the night before their departure to Africa. Early morning emails by Rachael, our VP of Operations and some re-juggled logistics had the Deckers back on track and seamlessly connecting to Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls. According to Rich, “Rachael and Chris were terrific! I was so impressed that Rachael was giving attention to this at 6am. Wildland helped to fix the flight mess and the rest of our vacation was fantastic.” Rich and Cathy started their time in Victoria Falls with a tour of the falls as well as a visit to a local village. “I found the village visit to be especially educational and moving. We spent an hour and a half with a mother and her three kids seeing where they cook, eat and sleep. I...

Botswana and Zambia Safari
Wild couple, Bill and Gregory just returned from their 10-day Wildland safari in Botswana and Zambia and according to Bill, "We had a heck of a time and the fact that you pulled off all of the logistics is astounding. The places we stayed were absolutely awesome and the people amazing. Wildland did a really good job." Both guests had previously traveled with Wildland to Peru and were able to apply their Wildland Alumni Loyalty discount to this trip to see the Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls and safari. They rated their guides as "darn good"  particularly their "guide Russ at Pelo was absolutely awesome; Jacob in the Lower Zambezi was very good and the same for John and Prince at the Luwi and Nsolo bush camps in South Luangwa." These travelers ate well along the way too, "all the meals were very good, with the outstanding food at Chundukwa a particular standout" Clearly, the...

Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu

Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu
This Wild family of three just returned from a custom adventure to Machu Picchu and the Amazon.  After hiking a segment of the Inca Trail, getting a taste of Peru’s cutting edge culinary delights, mountain biking through the highlands and ending piranha fishing in the Amazon, they had quite a few stories to share! “Gretchen, thanks to you and the entire Wildland Adventures team, we enjoyed a fantastic vacation!  Started off very well with your recommendation and subsequent reservation at Casa Moreyra, Astird & Gaston in Lima for our first amazing dinner (Astird introduced herself and we had a very nice chat J).   Accommodations, activities and most importantly, the Wildland Adventures representatives, drivers and naturalists/guides throughout our Peruvian adventure were top-notch!   Today alone, I’ve mentioned/recommended Wildland Adventures multiple times to friends at work. Top on my list; Piranha fishing, mountain biking, Inca Trail to Sun Gate & Huayna Picchu/Wayna Picchu.  ...
