March 7 Travel Seminar: Adventures in Morocco Saturday, March 7 @ 10:00 AM - The Savvy Traveler (Edmonds, WA) will be hosting a travel seminar on Adventures in Morocco presented by Wildland Adventures Founder Kurt Kutay. More About the Event Travel to Morocco on an all encompassing odyssey following ancient caravan routes of the Maghreb. This program delves deep into the exotic culture and diverse landscapes from the walled Imperial Cities seemingly suspended in time, through scenic high-Atlas Mountain passes and cliff-clinging kasbahs, among remarkably well preserved Roman ruins, and riding camels through the shifting dunes of the mighty Sahara to our camp in the desert. Colorful and vibrant Marrakech and the medieval souks of the Fez medina are introductions to Morocco's rich culture of art and craft. What really makes a Morocco Wildland Adventure extraordinary are connections in local communities and the gregarious hospitality, flavorful cuisine and lavish Moorish-style of the boutique accommodations. Our in-depth exploration...

Praise from Tanzania An email just came in this morning which made me smile: “Jeff, sipping a glass of wine under my mosquito net in our fabulous camp Maramboi.  I have never seen so many stars in my life, still enjoying the memories of our afternoon in the Tarangire national park where we saw LOTS of elephant, giraffe, zebra, gazelle, wart hogs, a jackal, plenty of birds, antelope, monkeys, mongoose, and more!!!!!! No cats yet but we have a wakeup call for 6:00am tomorrow.  Wonderful news about the upgrade. . . So far everything has exceeded my expectations. . . . My daughter and I are in HEAVEN!!!!!” – Katharine de Barrueta I love getting updates from our travelers in the field, especially when they’re really connecting with the place, people and surrounding environment as you once did. It reminds you of your own fond memories. For me, Katharine’s comments bring back the...
He is the personification of what you wanted your freshman biology professor to be Guest Review from our Wake of Wallace voyage through the Eastern Indonesian Islands of Raja Ampat with expert guide and Wallace expert Tony Whitten. “I am a biologist by profession...how could I pass up a trip that followed a part of Wallace's collecting route?  The chance to visit one of the few remaining spots on earth that has not been overly disturbed by man was the main attraction. Super trip!! Tony Whitten was outstanding… enthusiastic, funny, full of wit and wisdom and tireless.  He is the personification of what you wanted your freshman biology professor to be. Knowledgeable, approachable, but mostly just bubbling over with enthusiasm for all things scientific and biological. For someone like me who started out doing field work as an undergrad but then get waylaid by bench science, having Tony along brought all the excitement of being in college field classes.  When I suggested it would...
One of the most moving and wonderful experiences of my life Guest Review from our Nicaragua Family Vacation "The trip was wonderful! Wildland Adventures helped me plan my trip and get prepared perfectly!! The activity our family enjoyed the most was the pottery experience, the horse and cart ride, and the walk on Mombacho!! Our trip leader, Lou, was miles beyond our expectations. She must be aone-in-a-lifetime guide. She guided us through the chaos of Granada with exceptional organization, insight, timing, warmth, cheerful spirits and charm. Lou seemed to know everyone everywhere personally - clearly a true and cherished friend to many of the Nicaraguans we met. It was so reassuring to be with someone who knew so much about the people and the country. After we parted ways, the kids both mentioned missing her and wanting to write her. Your most discerning and hard- to-impress visitors would be delighted, I'm sure, to be guided by Lou. Our driver Fran was...

We chose this trip because we love adventure Guest review from Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure "Thanks for a great trip. We received excellent prep information. Having done many trips without a tour group, much of the information was a gentle reminder. The checklists were time saving and thoughtful. Both lodges offered different experiences and they were both wonderful. Selva Bananito was amazing and different. The Shawanda Lodge was lovely with lots of wildlife on the grounds. I loved the snorkeling and experience in Cahuita. The waterfall hike and rappel was awesome. Other highlights were the boat ride and day at the Bribri Indigenous community, the salsa lesson and cooking lessons and the Sloth Sanctuary. Alex Arias was professional, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He watched out for our comfort and safety and made sure that we had the best experience possible. He was able to teach us about the history of the country and the places we...
