Botswana and Zambia Safari

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...

Elephants of Mfuwe Lodge

Elephants of Mfuwe Lodge
Now is the season when the mango tree at Mfuwe Lodge is fruiting, and their large, grey, wrinkled guests start arriving. Watch these funny guests checking in for the annual stay and share the fun with your Facebook friends: From one generation to the another, mothers teach their offspring that there is a delicious big mango tree in the courtyard of the lodge, but they have to pass through the lobby to get there!  Watch the little ones negotiating the stairs...the fruit is just too tempting so they figure out how to negotiate the challenging footing.  During our South Luangwa Wild Walking Safari last May we woke up one morning at Mfuwe to a knock on our door and the jeep at our porch. "Mam, there are lions outside your door. If you want to go to breakfast now, please get in the vehicle and we will drive you to...

Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia

Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia
This week our Wild Zambia Safari was featured in the New York Times as one of "10 African Adventures Answering the Call of the Wild and Comfort."  Here's what the New York Times had to say:  "For travelers seeking a more active safari than most drive-focused itineraries, Wildland Adventures has introduced a 10-day Wild Zambia Safari that includes long hikes and passage by canoe as well as four-wheel drive safari vehicles in visits to South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Trips start at Victoria Falls and are largely divided between two remote but comfortable wilderness camps . Travelers will walk the five miles between them (with luggage shuttled forward), tracking buffalo, giraffe and elephant en route. The adventurous can add an optional night of camping under the stars in South Luangwa to the itinerary." Our Wild Zambia Safari is truly a one-of-a-kind adventure. Wildland founders, Kurt and Anne Kutay,...

Lots of Lovely Leopards in Luangwa

My five year old says that the letter of the day is ‘L’! And we’re talking about leopards.  Over the years at Wildland I’ve had many people say to me “What I’d really like to see is a leopard” . Though one of the Big 5, leopards are often tough to spot. In East Africa you usually see one on a trip, but you’re lucky if you see more than one and you may see no leopards. In Southern Africa it can be much the same, depending on where you are. Leopards are masters of stealth and spend a lot of time in trees, either resting or dragging a kill up there to enjoy at their leisure. With their spots they’re extremely well-camouflaged when the leaves of the branches rustle in the breeze. So where to go if you want to see leopard? The South Luangwa National Park in Zambia ....

Victoria Falls and Rhino Walking Safari in Zambia

Victoria Falls on our Southern Africa safari as seen from the walking path on the Zambia side. The two main highlights starting out our safaris in Botswana , Zambia and Zimbabwe was flying into Livingston and seeing Victoria Falls and then walking with rangers to see endangered white rhinos. The all-inclusive Wilderness Safaris camp of Toka Leya is right on the Zambezi and is one of the most well located camps in this area. There are a plethora of activities that can easily fit into two days here and they include our walk on the Zambia side of Victoria Falls, a game drive within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, a sunset river boat safari, and a guided walk in the local village of Mkuni providing insights about the people and village culture of this part of Zambia.   Many of the staff at Toka Leya are from the local village of Mkuni with...
