A Very Unique Wildlife Experience Two of our alumni travelers just returned from a customized Manu Wildlife Safari adventure in Peru and share their thoughts on several aspects of the trip below: "FAVORITE EXPERIENCES: The one day KM 104 hike up to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate was the perfect way to enter the site for the first time. Hardly any one else on the trail, plenty of interesting info from our guide as we hiked. Great experience as one finally gets to the top and suddenly looks down on Machu Picchu. The macaw clay lick was also exceptional...a very unique wildlife experience. ON GUIDES: Both our guides William in Manu and Reuben in the Sacred Valley were excellent...Reuben in particular. I really enjoyed the fact that they shared information about their own lives and experiences with us. Both shared their experiences with the Shining Path, for instance. Lots of jokes and laughter ON...

The Best Trip So Far! "We have used Wildland for two of our previous trips- each being a very pleasant experience, but this custom Peru trip was the best so far! Every place on this trip has been amazing. Really. With wonderful guides who really care about our having a great time definitely made a difference. At the Cruz del Condor, we weren't having much luck with condor sightings and although we told our guide Betty that it was not a big deal, she was determined to get us at least one sighting. When we did end up seeing the condors- which was indeed spectacular- it was an even greater experience because our guide was so happy that we got a chance to see it. Her enthusiasm was very influential to our experience. Our 2 main guides (Betty and Carlos) were superb! They were very passionate about their country and were very intuitive when it...
Martian Landscapes and Scenic Beauty: Blown Away by Atacama Arriving in the Atacama Desert this October, I was speechless as the plane began to descend into Calama, the region's capitol. The austere and Martian desert stretched out in every direction and was accented with epic snowcapped volcanoes in shades of fiery orange and rusty red; the salt flats beckoned to the east while smaller, salt mountains signaled the mouth of the Moon Valley to the south. Met at the airport, by my Explora Atacama hosts, I was given my introduction to this remote region of Chile. “The first European explorers to reach what is now known as the Atacama Desert were drawn by tales of a land rich in gold located somewhere south of the Inca Empire. It was due to this quest that the Spanish conquistador, Diego de Almagro, after a perilous journey across the Andes Mountains, became the first European adventurer to arrive in Chile and set foot...

Elephants of Mfuwe Lodge Now is the season when the mango tree at Mfuwe Lodge is fruiting, and their large, grey, wrinkled guests start arriving. Watch these funny guests checking in for the annual stay and share the fun with your Facebook friends: From one generation to the another, mothers teach their offspring that there is a delicious big mango tree in the courtyard of the lodge, but they have to pass through the lobby to get there!  Watch the little ones negotiating the stairs...the fruit is just too tempting so they figure out how to negotiate the challenging footing.  During our South Luangwa Wild Walking Safari last May we woke up one morning at Mfuwe to a knock on our door and the jeep at our porch. "Mam, there are lions outside your door. If you want to go to breakfast now, please get in the vehicle and we will drive you to...

How to Choose the Right Tiger Park in India India is home to 70% of the world’s remaining tigers. These majestic cats have been making a fantastic comeback due to conservation efforts after being on the verge of endangered just 20 years ago. Seeing one of these big cats is a once in a lifetime experience and there is no better place than on a trip to India to check that item off the bucket list. While it is easy to get lost in the eye of the tiger there are many other factors to take into account when choosing a park including but not limited to quality of lodges, naturalists as well as other flora and fauna. This blog is going to focus specifically on the national parks of Madhya Pradesh, considered the epicenter for tiger sightings in India. MP is also great because they offer full day permits if you’re really interested in seeing tigers. You get...
