Anne's Special Leopard Skin Camo Gloves for Wildlife Photography This month our expert travel specialists at Wildland Adventures are sharing  blog reviews of their favorite travel gear. Here's a one-of-a-kind, you-won't-find-anywhere-else, glove with special powers used by Anne Kutay, VP of Wildland Adventures. Like Lord of the Rings, this glove is Anne's "precious" secret that brings her close to nature to capture spectacular wildlife images like the ones below with her Canon Powerpoint and Apple Ipad.  Anne walked right up to this pride of lions in the morning sunlight and captured this shot behind the cloak of her leopard skin camo glove...they never saw her coming.     This wild dog popped its head up from the carcas of its kill when it sensed something in the vicinity. But with Anne Kutay's camo glove, she was invisible to the bloody dog and was able to capture this close up.  Another wild dog in the pack sensed her presence but...
Torrential Downpour? The Torrentshell has you covered. Literally. If you are planning a trip to a destination that gets a good amount of rainfall, the Patagonia Torrentshell Rain Jacket should be the first item on your packing list. This jacket incorporates Patagonia’s H2No technology and is sure to keep you dry in the heaviest of rain. The Torrentshell is lightweight and takes up very little space in your luggage, so you never have to think twice when packing for a trip. It’s a favorite of mine for trekking and mountaineering because it doesn’t weigh down my pack and does an amazing job of protecting me from the elements. To keep the jacket handy, pull out one of the pockets and stuff the jacket inside. A nifty carabiner loop allows you to attach it to the outside of your pack for quick use. A frequent problem you may have noticed with some waterproof materials is that they’re not only...

These sandals have seen the world I have been a huge fan of Chaco’s Z1 Sandals for longer than I can remember. I am currently wearing out my 4th pair. My Chacos have traveled with me to several continents: through rivers, on mountain trails, and pounded street pavement from Mumbai to Seattle. What makes me such a big fan, you ask? Comfort for one – put them on and forget they are there. Single-strap tightening adjusts them. They have a high, supportive arch so they feel like a quality gym shoe. Durability is the second benefit. Chacos can take a beating. Don’t worry if you get them wet or muddy – they dry quickly. This was especially useful traipsing through Bangkok’s flooded streets as I knew I could wash them off along with my feet. Each pair has lasted me 5 – 8 years.  The third reason is they are useful. You can wear them while...

How I got engaged on safari in South Africa I have known Jeff Stivers since high school. We booked our custom South Africa safari with Wildland because of him but he and other staff took a lot of time to craft a unique and personalized experience full of authentic and unforgettable moments. I wanted to safari in Africa with my girlfriend and propose to her, and share a lasting memory on an amazing trip to start our time together. Jeff's intimate knowledge of our travel sites, as well as his personal friendship with our lodge's owners, led to a perfect proposal. He crafted the perfect engagement, from sunrise to sunset. We were treated to a private bush walk to view my fiance's favorite animal, a sunset, candle-lit dinner with champagne at the lodge's secluded bird hide, and most importantly, the perfect moment to propose. I can honestly say that Wildland's staff gave us the perfect engagement! We loved our...
