Following the Leopard's Footsteps in Sri Lanka Check out this video of a banner day on safari in Wilpattu National Park, Sri Lanka. Wilpattu is Sri Lanka's largest park and one of its oldest. Sri Lankan parks boast some of the highest densities of leopards in the world so your chances of seeing this majestic cat are pretty good! On the day featured in this video 3 leopards were spotted, including one trying to hunt a boar! Wilpattu, land of lakes, is one of 22 national parks in Sri Lanka and boasts an impressive variety of animals from elephants to sloth bears to leopards and water buffalo. It's best is to spend 2 days exploring this massive and varied park. The animals can be elusive in Wilpattu due to its size but when you do catch a sighting it's all the more rewarding as there are barely any other jeeps around!  Check out our Wild Sri Lanka...

A Well of Inspiration in Tanzania   Many times over the years, Wildland travelers have truly awed us with their generosity and humility. But it’s even more of an inspiration when that person is only 12 years old!   During her Wildland Serengeti Family Safari, 12 year old Jamie visited the Mikocheni Primary School alongside our guide Hadji. What she discovered left a lasting impression, moving Jamie to make it her mission to assist the school and local community through building a well.  There is no source of water near the school and the children must carry their own water, in some cases walking up to 6 miles. This project will provide fresh water within easy reach of the thirsty students. Watch this short video, created (and sung!) by Jamie and her 3 older siblings, outlining her plan to improve the quality of life for the children of Mikocheni School.     We continually donate to...
Travel To The Source To Experience The Full Terroir A relevant food, lifestyle and culture report from the Hartman Group of Seattle, WA, reports on the growing consumer importance of "local" when it comes to the source and quality of food preferences.     Although this research is about the purchase and consumption of food at home, it speaks to us and our style of traveler who also appreciates experiencing farm to table when traveling on a Wildland Adventure. When we travel we go to the source to discover the origins of foods and to learn local recipes from families and celebrity chefs. This fosters a more sustainable kind of tourism in which we engage culinary experts, meet farmers and boutique wine makers, enjoy meals in local homes, and any number of special dining experiences in local eateries even including street foods like "mussels a la Istanbul" when traveling in Turkey.     We always seek out opportunities to...

A Tomar Una Copa Festiva! (To a Celebratory Drink!) Fourth of July is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a special festive drink from my favorite destination- Fernet from Argentina!? One of my first memories of going out with friends in Argentina, was on a warm night in March- Argentina’s late summer. A well-intentioned friend handed me a glass of dark medicinal, smelling liquor, better known as Fernet, and then proceeded to flood the glass with Coca-Cola. “Toma! Es nuestra bebida nacional! Drink! It's our national drink” I took a gulp.  The bitter flavor of Fernet perfectly complimented by the sweet, fizzy cola is refreshing and absolutely bizarre- it took me years of living in Argentina to finally appreciate and, dare I say, LIKE, Fernet! Though my first experience with trying Fernet was one mostly of utter shock at the complex and foreign flavor, I have grown to love it and associate it with...
