The Hiking was Wonderful!! This active family of four just returned from a custom Hikers Patagonia Adventure in Patagonia and share some of their incredible experiences:   “First of all, we enjoyed all the hiking- it was wonderful!!   Second, we loved all of our guides!  Lorena in Santiago took care of us well. Chris in Patagonia Camp was good and entertaining. Ismail, Frederico in Calafate were great. Andres in El Chalten was especially good. Had a nice pace for hiking and just an easy guy to be around for 9-10 hours. His knowledge of geology was great and interesting to us.   Patagonia Camp yurts were fun, unique, warm, cozy, and loved that they were separated. El Puma, in El Chalten, was very comfortable and well situated. Loved Alta Vista in El Calafate because I wouldn't have wanted to be in town. I loved hiking from the house and riding the horses was...

The Best Trip We Ever Took! After an exhilarating 17-day customized In The Wake of Magellan adventure, exploring Patagonia, Buenos Aires, and Iguazu Falls, these two travelers share their initial insights upon return home. “We are returned from South America, and it was the trip of a lifetime! We both seriously thought it was probably the best trip we ever took! Very briefly, we were amazed at the amount of organization that so many transfers, flights, connections, and pre-paid fees were necessitated, and are truly amazed that you had it all organized and that it all went so smoothly. Guides would ask, "Did you pay for ?.....", and while we looked at each other with blank faces, the guide would look through our papers and then say, "Yeah, you're all set." We are very impressed. Also - the guides were consistently excellent, really excellent. And the food and wine at Singular, on the ship, and at...

A Wonderful Experience in Peru Guest review from two alumni travelers who, with a group of their friends, just completed our Manu Wildlife Safari Overland Adventure: Andes and Amazon in Peru! “We had a wonderful experience in Peru. Our guides (Ruben & William) were fabulously friendly, had great senses of humor, and had great stores of knowledge about Inca and cultural history, flora and fauna. William's ability to imitate bird calls or reproduce them using his Iphone to lure them, then pointing them out to us with his laser was amazing in allowing us to view them. A fond memory was catching Piranha with William in an Oxbow lake. Ruben told tales of bullfights featuring condors and bulls and his own experience with an Alto Misayoc seeking treatment for his friend 6 years ago. A favorite memory is listening to a choir of Quechuans in traditional dress, singing in the Cusco Cathedral, a very haunting and heart-piercing experience....

Indian Samosas Recipe Samosas are one of India's most iconic appetizers. Religion, food, temperature, language change drastically as you travel throughout India but samosas are perhaps the most ubiquitous street food in this diverse nation. What's not to love? These fluffy, flaky, handheld pockets hide mounds of spiced vegetables and are super addicting. Good luck eating just one! Dimple and her husband Terun run the Kanha Jungle Lodge. They’re wonderful friends of ours here at Wildland and while we love searching the dense jungle with Tehrun or talking birds with their son Jai another reason we cherish our visits to Kanha Jungle Lodge is for Dimple’s spectacular cooking. She’s an artist in the kitchen, tries to use as many fresh and seasonal ingredients as she can, and creates culinary delights you would never expect in the jungles of India. Dimple’s samosas are always a crowd favorite. They’re light and crispy on the outside...

El Nino - Is it Really That Bad? We all hear a lot about El Nino and how, every 5-7 years, it turns weather patterns on their heads, adversely affecting wildlife at the same time. While this is true to a degree, no two El Nino events are the same, so predicting the outcome is never a given. It's important to understand the mechanics of El Nino in order to understand how the 2015 event is impacting a region such as the Galapagos Islands. To begin, typical westward blowing trade winds slow down. This in turn throws off the usual westward-flowing water currents such as the icy Humboldt Current, which typically bring rich nutrients to the islands. Fish and algae slowly die off, followed by sea birds which depend on those fish, and marine iguanas and turtles which depend on the algae. Moving up the chain, sea lions begin searching in new places for sustenance. Species such as...
