Heres what the first 24 hours of our Endless Summer Downunder looks like

Heres what the first 24 hours of our Endless Summer Downunder looks like
What a breeze flying from LAX departing at 10 PM, in the air for 14 hours getting a solid night's rest and arriving Sydney at 7 AM, 3 movies in with just a 5 hour time difference. Flying Virgin Australia in Premium Economy (roomy seats with same Biz Class in-flight service) certainly helped make the trans-Pacific crossing easy too.    8 AM:  We headed straight from the airport to a beautiful coastal trail in Royal National Park just 45 minutes from the city.  12 Noon:  Our Aussie angel, Sheree Knickel, a friend and guide at Longitude 131 one of the Luxury Lodges of Australia (Ulhuru), took us to the beach for a swim by high noon. 2PM:  Checked into our room with a view of Syndey Harbor at the spectacular Intercontinental, centrally located in the hub of Circular Quay with views of the water, Sydney Opera House, and spectacular waterfront suburbs....

Meet Your Guides: Snehaa Sundaram

Meet Your Guides: Snehaa Sundaram
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of adventure trips to India is the guides. We know how important  good guide is to a trip and we put 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 traveled to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better. Snehaa was my main guide at Kanha Jungle Lodge in Kanha National park, a famous tiger park known for being one of the largest and oldest in India. Her laugh is infectious and her knowledge of everything elephant is truly impressive! Try to stump her with a question about elephants, I dare you! Snehaa works at...

Why Travel to Nepal in 2016

Why Travel to Nepal in 2016
Traveling to Nepal can be a once in a lifetime adventure. It offers the world’s highest mountain and the deepest valley. Smiling locals welcome you as you trek timeless trails to snow capped mountain giants. Monks circumambulate stupas that have withstood the test of time, and now, earthquakes. Come with us to visit Nepal and support her as she attempts to stand proudly on her feet once again after a devastating earthquake in April 2015. It’s all still there and the places, the people, and the experiences are waiting for you to visit a destination which has been rattled but not broken. Why Travel to Nepal Now? 1. Less crowds. We believe this is an extraordinary time for travelers to visit Nepal, a time for especially meaningful travel due to the extra hospitality and gratitude, and the recovery’s unique energy, stories and inspiration. The crowds have yet to return to the mountains...

Marveling at gorgeous animals and amazing scenery every day in Tanzania

Marveling at gorgeous animals and amazing scenery every day in Tanzania
Bob, Carol, Michael and Leslie chose Wildland Adventures to plan their custom Tanzania safari last November. Highlights of the trip included both Tarangire National Park and the Serengeti. It also included the less-visited but equally impressive Ruaha and Selous game reserves in southern Tanzania. “I couldn't have been more prepared…You were willing to have extended discussions about details of camera equipment, what to take, descriptions of accommodations, etc.” All the camera preparation paid off with these up-close images that Michael was able to capture. “We loved Tarangire in part because it was first, also due to excellent guiding by Kevin. He is a gem! We saw a cheetah and a leopard kill first day! His knowledge on birds and animals is outstanding. The Serengeti is simply fabulous for what it is! We saw dozens and dozens of animals, with great guide location and access, patience and humor.” “A once in...
