5 Things that really excite me about Kruger National Park in South Africa

5 Things that really excite me about Kruger National Park in South Africa
Howzit! I recently spent a week in the Greater Kruger National Park. At 50 million unfenced acres (larger than New England, or about the size of Nebraska) this network of public and private reserves is one of the largest conservation areas in all of Africa. This park is the crown jewel of South Africa and is featured in almost every one of our South Africa safaris. Here are the 5 things that really blew me away during this trip. 1) ElephantsAnti-poaching programs and stronger protections for elephants in this area have led to a burgeoning population. Guests can enjoy up close and personal interactions (like the one I had below) in this area. Because parts of the park have been around since 1898, many of the animals here have grown up in the presence of safari-goers and do not see people or vehicles as a threat. This means close encounters are...

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of a trip to India are the guides. How well a guide gets along with you, a Wildland traveler, can make or break a trip. Wildland puts a lot of effort into finding the best guides for every area that we travel to. We focus on using local guides in each area, ensuring that these guides possess a seemingly unlimited wealth of knowledge about their area of expertise. The last time I went to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better. Ajai is actually certified to guide all of Northern India but loves introducing travelers to his hometown of Varanasi best. It's obvious the depth of love and knowledge he has for this spiritual hub as you walk and talk your way through narrow alleyways or cruise down the ghats together....

Bringing Wild Light and Hope to Nepal

Bringing Wild Light and Hope to Nepal
Early last year, a massive 7.8 earthquake rocked Nepal killing thousands.  The devastation was widespread, destroying nearly a million homes and more than 10,000 schools.  To support Nepal's ongoing efforts to rebuild, Wildland Adventures has partnered with 3 Summits for Nepal for the Charity Climb for Nepal.  Four of our staff will be climbing to the summit of Mt. Rainier July 28-30th to help raise awareness of this issue and the necessary funds to make a difference. These funds will go directly to purchase solar panels for four village schools that are still without power, bringing light and hope that they have been without for over a year. Please support our Wild cause! Help us reach our goal of $5,000 to bring solar power to four village schools by donating to our cause on our fundraising page. With your help, Wildland Adventures has been supporting environmental and social causes around the globe for the past 30 years. Please consider a donation to our Wild cause! Below you'll find some...

Retired woman seeking others to experience Panama Fall 2016
Attention travelers!  A retired woman in her early 60's is interested in traveling with others who would like to join either the October 21 or December 2, 2016 departure of our Panama Explorer itinerary. Geared towards the exploration of Panama’s ecological and cultural diversity, this easy going 10-day small-group tour needs at least three other people to confirm the departure.  She's an active woman who's traveled extensively and enjoyes discovering different cultures and ecosystems. She's especially interested in learning more about the expansion of the Panama Canal, and discovering the differences (and similarities!) between Panama and Costa Rica. Please let Central America Program Director Grettel Calderon know if you're interested in learning more.  Keeping it wild, Wildland Adventures
