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...
How to handle a travel emergency in your sleep We have guests who are sleeping in a tent on Kilimanjaro right now and we just received a call from Isaac Hilpman at Exito Travel that Air Uganda went out of business yesterday. So the flight they booked before they departed  from Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, to Entebbe, Uganda 10 days from now no longer exists! Now it’s 12pm in Seattle, 11pm on the mountain, and they’re in the middle of climbing Kilimanjaro--all 19,000 feet of it, to the roof of Africa. They started their climb yesterday, and will return to Arusha, Tanzania on Sunday. Although there is emergency communication by radio with park rangers, they are otherwise out of touch until then.   So, while they were asleep on the mountain our team immediately went into action. With the assistance of Exito Travel we booked a new flight for them before everyone else on that Air Uganda flight made their alternate arrangements, arriving only 30...
Anne's Special Leopard Skin Camo Gloves for Wildlife Photography This month our expert travel specialists at Wildland Adventures are sharing  blog reviews of their favorite travel gear. Here's a one-of-a-kind, you-won't-find-anywhere-else, glove with special powers used by Anne Kutay, VP of Wildland Adventures. Like Lord of the Rings, this glove is Anne's "precious" secret that brings her close to nature to capture spectacular wildlife images like the ones below with her Canon Powerpoint and Apple Ipad.  Anne walked right up to this pride of lions in the morning sunlight and captured this shot behind the cloak of her leopard skin camo glove...they never saw her coming.     This wild dog popped its head up from the carcas of its kill when it sensed something in the vicinity. But with Anne Kutay's camo glove, she was invisible to the bloody dog and was able to capture this close up.  Another wild dog in the pack sensed her presence but...
