New Regulations Traveling to South Africa With Minors Effective June 1, 2015 Families with minors (children under 18) to or from South Africa take note that the South African government has adopted new documentation requirements for minors, which will go into effect on June 1, 2015.     See the South African Department of Home Affairs summary of the New Immigration Regulations for Families Traveling Abroad With Children.   Please review these documentation requirements and make sure you comply. Families traveling without the required documentation may be detained and denied entry.     Both parents traveling with a minor must produce an unabridged birth certificate.   One parent traveling with a minor must produce an unabridged birth certificate and a consent form from the other parent, a non-parent traveling with a minor must produce similar and additional documentation (e.g., identify documents for the non-present parents)   This is just a short overview of some of the new requirements and is not legal...

Sri Lanka: A Review and an Unveiling We recently had a couple come to us with a request to travel to Sri Lanka. Wildland has been working in India for many years, but until a year ago had yet to set our sights on the small, teardrop shaped nation to the south. After doing some research, we decided Sri Lanka was a perfect fit for Wildland.  Wildland has always made the environment a core focus of our trips and Sri Lanka not only lays claim to the world's first national park, but over 15% of its land area is protected wildlife area. We seek out ways to make authentic cultural connections and Sri Lanka is a friendly nation with people who are truly excited to show off what it has to offer to foreign visitors. The Vedda, the indigenous people of Sri Lanka who can draw a direct line of descent from the island's original neolithic community,...
Machu Picchu is a don't miss travel destination This multigenerational family just returned from their Sacred Lands of the Incas trip to Peru- their 5th Wildland Adventure! Beginning in Cusco, they continued on to the lush Sacred Valley where they met with locals and hiked to remote villages and ruins.  They ended their trip at the ancient and awe-inspiring citadel of Machu Picchu with a stunning and challenging hike up to the impressive Huayna Picchu.    “We signed up for this trip because Machu Picchu is a don't miss travel destination and I like outdoor trips with the kids. Wildland's help in planning and preparation was excellent.  We had all the right clothing and accessories. Reading "Turn right at Machu Picchu" was a fantastic recommendation. Ground arrangements were prefect- always someone there to greet us. Our guide, Elkin was great.  Elkin had to deal with some of us struggling during the 3 hour hike and he took my...

The Ins and Outs of Family Travel to SE Asia One of my fondest memories occurred while floating down the Mekong on a slow boat. A two-day journey between Northern Laos and Luang Prabang, this voyage allows for ample time to get to know your fellow passengers. This particular group was a family of 10. Every year one of the 3 kids plans a trip and then the parents fund it. This one was a roaming 17-day exploration of SE Asia – from Thailand to Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam and the travelers ranged from ages 6-75. They told me that this had been a party favorite to date as this area of the world had something for everyone – beaches where kids could build castles and adults could lounge, ancient temples that allowed kids to feel like Dora the Explorer and adults like Indiana Jones, and a great range of choose your own adventure food options depending on if you...
Peru vs Patagonia: Choosing the Right Multigenerational Trip Often when I am working with family groups trying to decide on trips to South America I am asked something along the lines of: We are interested in Patagonia and Peru but can’t decide- what would be best for our kids and their grandparents? Do you have a trip that would work over the kids’ spring break? Hands down I always recommend Peru. Besides the geographical factor that a trip to Peru can often be completed with one direct international flight (there are direct flights to Lima from Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and New York), the proximity of sights and in-country destinations are perfect for a 7-9 day adventure (the typical amount of time of a school vacation or break). Patagonia and even Argentina or Chile on their own take longer to get to and the distances needing to be covered are much further between in-country destinations....
