New Culinary and Wine Adventures Savor a different holiday fare this season? Try one of these Wild recipes from afar! We've already begun celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2016 by announcing our Culinary & Wine Adventures.

Still So Excited by the Huge Variety of Birds We Were Able to Capture on Film This adventurous couple just returned from a 17-day customized Manu Wildlife Safari Overland Adventure. After visiting Cusco, The Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, several areas of the Amazon, the Colca Canyon and Arequipa, see what wisdom they have to share! “The trip was amazing; it enabled us to see many aspects of Peru--from Machu Picchu that we had heard so much about to the huge variety of animals (especially birds!) We really enjoyed the overall impression of Peru--so many aspects! We loved all the ruins and terraces that illustrated how vast the Inca influence was and surprisingly how much was pre-Inca. Fascinating to see how much remains the same. Two of our favorite experiences were: 1) The Amazonia Lodge en route to Manu National Park- there were so many great birds! 2) In Arequipa, we saw "juanita", the ice maiden: definitely worth it—fascinating!   Our guides were good! Vignor was very...

Happy Holidays to each and all We received this delightful holiday letter from a family of alumni travelers and felt it was too good not to share: "This year a 17 day Tanzanian Safari with Wildland Adventures exceeded our greatest expectations. We spent long, full days in Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Parks where the extraordinary teeming abundance of wildlife led to up close and personal encounters with lions (100+), elephants, leopards, cheetah and way too many wildebeest, hippos, giraffes, impala, ect, to count.  And we had a private tour! Our driver-guide spotted game at every turn while driving in our open top Toyota Land Cruiser on Tanzania's infamous roads. In addition to wildlife sightings, we had fascinating encounters with a few of the 120 tribal groups, including a walkabout with the primitive Hadzabe hunter/gatherers as they sought game with bow and arrows. Seeing a snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro as we left was the perfect...

Meet Your Guides: Surya Namascar! More often than not the highlight of a trip 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. Wildland focuses 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. Surya, a young naturalist based in Satpura National Park, answers my questionnaire below. If you want to see more from our guides in India head over here! SURYA – Forsythe Lodge, Satpura National Park WHERE FROM: Chennai WHEN DID YOU START? 2011 HOW DID YOU BECOME A NATURALIST? Always been interested....
