Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls, Hwange and Mana Pools - Guest Review

Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls, Hwange and Mana Pools - Guest Review
Rich and Cathy Decker almost didn’t make it out of the United States thanks to a Delta Airlines computer crash that grounded 2,000 flights the night before their departure to Africa. Early morning emails by Rachael, our VP of Operations and some re-juggled logistics had the Deckers back on track and seamlessly connecting to Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls. According to Rich, “Rachael and Chris were terrific! I was so impressed that Rachael was giving attention to this at 6am. Wildland helped to fix the flight mess and the rest of our vacation was fantastic.” Rich and Cathy started their time in Victoria Falls with a tour of the falls as well as a visit to a local village. “I found the village visit to be especially educational and moving. We spent an hour and a half with a mother and her three kids seeing where they cook, eat and sleep. I...

Travel to Morocco in Winter

Travel to Morocco in Winter
Most people think of Morocco’s hot deserts with golden dunes, it’s bustling outdoor markets, nighttime street food vendors, and sunny beaches. And while travel to Morocco in Spring and Summer is considered the best time of year, travel to Morocco in winter has its own virtues, not the least of which it’s an easy 7-hour flight from New York to plan an exotic adventure during the holidays. From November through February, everywhere tends to be more tranquil (outside of the Christmas-New Year’s holiday when advance booking is required), where the best boutique accommodations and small villages make for truly private getaways.
