An Interview With Radheesh, Founder of Leopard Trails Tented Camp Mr. Radheesh Sellamuttu, Managing Director of Leopard Trails. Radheesh recognized from a young age the phenomenal wildlife biodiversity of his country Sri Lanka. Inspired by the golden era of British explorers of early 19th century wild Ceylon, Radheesh left his business career to start a travel business in Sri Lanka. His company, Leopard Trails tented safaris, allows a modern wildlife experience in “spectacular solitude and soothing comfort.”  What do we need to know about Radheesh Sellamuttu? I went to boarding school in Australia and completed my schooling in Sri Lanka. Academic excellence was important to me growing up. I have a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from Imperial College London. My post-graduate qualifications and professional experience are in finance. I am passionate about wildlife, trading stocks, cooking Sri Lankan food, and spending money on experiences! How did you start Leopard Trails? Being immersed in the nocturnal noises...
Eight Diamond in the Rough Destinations for 2016 In celebration of Wildland Adventures 30th (diamond!) anniversary we’ve selected 8 of our hidden, and occasionally overlooked, gems. Some of these are trips that go further, to more remote areas or require a bit more of an adventurous spirit to get to. Others are ones that experienced travelers seek out and relish for their unique opportunity to see a long-established destination in a very different light. Still others are oft-overlooked destinations that really shouldn’t be. Below, we highlight misconceptions that might put some travelers off and what really makes the trip or destination really sparkle and shine. 8) Ethiopia: Land of Legends Ethiopia is steeped in history and a crossroads of Africa and the Middle-East. This is an adventure traveler’s dream trip. The island monasteries of Bahir Dar, stone churches of Lallibella, the African Castles of Gondar, the Simien Mountains, Axum (the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant...

Happy New Year from Siem Reap! The Doehring family just returned from a Southeast Asia adventure that started in 2015 and spanned Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. They didn't even return to the states until 2016 :) Starting in Northern Vietnam the Doehrings explored the countryside by bike, Halong Bay by boat, and Hanoi by street food vendor (the best way to do it!) After Vietnam, they jetted over to Luang Prabang in Laos where they learned about rice production and spent 2 full days living and interacting with elephants at the Elephant Conservation Center.  Paul says, " Luang Prabang is a beautiful city and one I could see myself living in. The architecture, the food, the people - everything was great!" Janet emebellished on the rice experience saying, "I'll never take rice for granted again!"  The Doehrings continued on to Southern Laos and explored the 4,000 islands. It's a  quick hop from there to Cambodia where...

Meet Your Guides: Luis at Explora Atacama As the year comes to a close, I wanted to take the time to highlight some of the key players in Wildland Adventures’ travel experience: our guides! This year, I had the chance to be out in the field with several of our amazing guides: Joao and Abadias in the Brazilian Amazon, Bira in Salvador, Tiago in Chapada Diamantia, Everaldo in Rio de Janeiro, Cata and Nicole in Torres del Paine, Chile and Oscar and Luis in Atacama, Chile. One of my favorite memories, while out in the field this past year, was hiking up Lascar Volcano with our guide Luis in the Atacama Desert in Chile. Luis has made a strong reputation for himself amongst Wildland travelers for his expert knowledge of astronomy while entertaining guests during his informative lectures about the night skies at the Explora Atacama observatory in addition to his intricate knowledge of the unique flora,...
