Getting past luxe on the Arabian Peninsula By invitation of Ethiad Airlines, KAI Associates and our friends in the Arabian Gulf, I'm headed to Ahu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and to Muscat, Oman. UAE has become a major international air hub with many competing carriers offering free stopover opportunities.  I know what to expect. Skyscrapers, gold and glitz, and fancy air-conditioned malls amidst a modern global culture rooted in ancient tradition and Islamic faith. And I know that Business Class on Ethiad Air 16 hours direct from LAX should be smooth sailing in the air. Not to mention a few overnights in the Emirates Palace in the pinnacle of luxury and Arabian hospitality.  But it begs the question: Will I get beyond the luxe and the hardscape to experience anything resembling ecotourism? After all, Wildland Adventures is rooted in responsible travel that conserves the enviornment and supports the well-being of local people. I...

Vietnam and Cambodia through the eyes of locals The Wildland difference is we send our travelers into remote corners of our world to see countries through the eyes of the locals. Our new Ultimate Vietnam and Cambodia is a perfect opportunity to do just that: work alongside a Vietnamese farmer in a valley near Hoi An and talk to a war photographer in Ho Chi Minh City. Stay with a family in Cho Lach and learn how they make a living with crafts such as weaving and brick-making. Explore the isolated Khmer ruins in Cambodia and relax as guests at a family home in a small village. Meet street kids at a restaurant in Pnomh Penh where they work to gain experience in the hospitality industry. There are plenty more amazing historical and natural sites we will visit on this incredible new journey, too many to list in just one blog! With these intimate experiences at hand, you will...
From an Expert: Five Tips for Booking Last Minute Airfare Guest Blog from Isaac Hilpman, Director of Partner Accounts at Exito Travel.  As a travel professional specializing in international airfare I am often asked for advice about purchasing last minute tickets. So while the only guarantee with airfare is that it is going to change, here are some suggestions for my fellow travelers. Tip #1: Don’t do it! Waiting until the last minute to book flights is a big mistake if you want ideal routings and inexpensive fares. Airfare is based on availability. Generally speaking, the closer one is to their date of departure the fuller the flights and thus the higher the price. Additionally, the airlines have what are referred to as advanced purchase requirements. These requirements state that tickets must be purchased fourteen to fifty days prior to departure for the best rates in a given market. A massive airfare consolidator recently analyzed more than four million flights booked...
November: Last Chance EVER for our Wild Botswana Safari, Save $600 per person That's right! Our most popular Wildland Adventure in Botswana is coming to an end after 2014 and there only few spaces remaining on the final departures in November (11th - 20th or 24th - Dec 2nd). The semi-permanent mobile safari camps utilized in this itinerary are strategically located within exclusive wildlife concessions which have a strict occupancy limits to ensure low pressure on the wildlife and an intimate wildlife experience for guests. In 2015, these camps will be packed up and moved to make more room in the concessions for higher priced accommodations. The Wild Botswana therefore offers an incredible value for the remainder of 2014 and we're discounting it an additioanl $600 per person! Limited to 8 travelers and under the guidance of one master safari guide throughout, enjoy exclusive wildlife viewing throughout the Okavango Delta, Chobe and Linyanti.  November in Botswana provides excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing as much...
