Chile for hip travelers When thinking of trips to Chile, most travelers think of the rugged, southern frontier of Patagonia or the arid, crimson Atacama Desert in the north. Santiago, when compared to some of it austral capitol counterparts, is often overlooked. Though I personally do not find Santiago to be the most inspiring of cities, its surrounding wine country and western, more artsy sibling city on the coast, Valparaiso, are absolutely amazing and tend to go undiscovered by the vast majority of adventure travelers. When taking off on an adventure, I find that as much as I yearn for foreign nature and wilderness, I equally find myself lusting for culture and unfamiliar urban inspiration. Santiago’s neighboring areas of Valparaiso and diverse wine country offer just this juxtaposition and make for an excellent way to begin or end a trip in Chile before or after embarking out into its more far-flung back country. Take...
What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco? I recently had the opportunity to answer that great question: "What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?" What we do in Morocco (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) is individual and personalized, much different than virtually all other tour companies running adventure trips in Morocco. Our driver/escorts, and local guides we meet up with along the way, will not take Wildland travelers to places without asking. For example, before setting out each morning our lead driver/guide, Kamal  Abdelfadil, will show you where you've already traveled, where you are planning to go and do that day,and what your options are to see and do. So, the extent to which you do some additional research as we are planning your itinerary, or simply in anticipation of your trip to Morocco, it will help you to have an idea of places you would like to see. You will...

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...

Delving Deep into Southern Africa This April and May I spent three weeks on safari covering a huge swath of Southern Africa from Zimbabwe to Zambia to Botswana to South Africa. While clocking over 1 year total in combined time on various trips to Africa I had not yet been to some of the famed parks of Southern Africa and to be honest I was bit unprepared for how impressive this part of Africa would be and the lasting memories I’d take home. I've written a series of blogs highlighting some of the destinations I found most interesting during my safari, I saw way too much to squeeze into one blog.   Unique Habitat and Exceptional Game on Safari in Hwange Favorite Lodges and Awesome Fishing in Mana Pools Victoria Falls: Zambia vs Zimbabwe Your guide to safaris in the Okavango Delta In addition, I created a photo gallery from my trip: Keeping it wild, Jeff...

Your guide to safaris in the Okavango Delta Flying over the Okavango Delta is an incredible experience. The sheer size of the delta is hard to grasp when viewing it on a map or Google Earth and it seems endless when viewing it in person. When fully spread out it covers an area nearly 155mi by 95mi with 290 billion gallons of water. The elevation change over this huge area is only about 215 feet so that means the water slowly creeps in over months to reach its furthest extent. What would otherwise be flat Kalahari dessert is a rich mixture of grasslands, woodlands and papyrus swamps which consume some 60% of the waters with the rest mostly lost through evaporation. It’s heaven for wildlife and a real treat for any visitor. I traveled around extensively within the area and instead of getting lost in the details of each area I’d like to provide some basic observations about...
