November: Last Chances for our Wild Botswana Safari EVER That's right! Our most popular Wildland Adventure in Botswana is coming to an end after 2014 and there only few spaces remaning on the final departures in November (11th - 20th or 24th - Dec 2nd). Many of the wildlife camps have undergone a dramatic refurbishment and will be repurposed for other itineraries in the future. The Wild Botswana therefore offers an incredible value for the remainder of 2014. Limited to 8 travelers and under the guidance of one master safari guide thoughout, visit private concessions for exclusive wildlife viewing from Victoria Falls, through Chobe and the Linyanti and to the Okavango Delta.  November in Botswana provides excellent oppotunities for wildlife viewing as much of the game is concentrated near the permanent waters of the Okavango Delta and Linyanti/Chobe River systems following months of dry days and the searing heat of October. The cooling short afternoon rains of November trigger...
Heart Pounding Mokoro Ride in Botswana's Okavango Delta Our Wild Botswana safari was absolutely amazing!  I don’t think we could have had a better guide. Francis Kudomo was so knowledgeable about everything from animals to stars to the history of Botswana.  He was hospitable, patient, and accommodating.  He knew the wildlife like the back of his hand and in a short time we trusted him.  He was so thorough in making sure all our bags were with us before each flight, in going over camp rules, letting us know the plans for each day the night before.  With four women on our safari he was very patient with frequent loo stops.  He never minded.  What a great guy!    We had never gone anywhere with a tour before and I don’t think we could have had a better group.  We were all like-minded in so many ways and meshed very well.  We were probably one of the most talkative...

The Up For Anything Shirt I have been meaning to write a gear review about my favorite shirt for a long time because my ExOfficio Reef Runner™ Shirt absolutely deserves a shout out. It has stood up to everything I've thrown at it; not only has it stood up to the test, but it's the only shirt that I feel like I could literally wear anywhere and in any situation. This shirt has been with me while guiding trips around the world, journeying across the Sahara, backpacking through our National Parks, downhill mountain biking in Canada, salsa dancing in Madrid's discotecas and even doing a "Man Test" in Montana. On this adventure I took only my ExOfficio shirt, a pair of pants and a furry Montana hat and headed out into the backcountry to see if I could survive with nothing else. I've even worn this shirt going out on first dates! If that doesn't show faith in a product,...

Northface Women's Horizon II pants I got my first pair of Women's Horizon II Pants (black) about four years ago for a safari in Africa and since then that’s the only type of pants I like to travel with. They are especially nice for traveling in Central America, where I work and play. Since then I've bought two other pairs in beige and olive green. They are perfect for the sometimes intense tropical weather conditions you can find at these destinations. The pants are super light weight, dry very quickly and offer a lot of mobility and flexibility for climbing, hiking and trekking. They also feature roll up cuffs with tabs to keep the hems out of mud or pools of waters and provide some relief when it gets too hot. Having a good pair of pants in the jungle is important because they can also protect you from bug bites. It has a secure-zip...
What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco? I recently had the opportunity to answer that great question: "What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?" What we do in Morocco (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) is individual and personalized, much different than virtually all other tour companies running adventure trips in Morocco. Our driver/escorts, and local guides we meet up with along the way, will not take Wildland travelers to places without asking. For example, before setting out each morning our lead driver/guide, Kamal  Abdelfadil, will show you where you've already traveled, where you are planning to go and do that day,and what your options are to see and do. So, the extent to which you do some additional research as we are planning your itinerary, or simply in anticipation of your trip to Morocco, it will help you to have an idea of places you would like to see. You will...
