Cultural encounters were the surprise of our Tanzania Safari When the Kaplan family traveled to Tanzania on our Serengeti Family Safari in June they knew that they were in for some great wildlife. What was unexpected was the people that they met and the cultures that they experienced along the way. "The entire trip was fabulous. The highlight was actually the cultural encounters that we had. I expected the animal part of the safari but our visit with the Bushman was beyond anything I could imagine and my kids loved playing soccer, volleyball, and frisbee with the locals. Our guide Dominic was unbelievable. He was incredibly knowledgeable but was also a truly amazing person. He kept everyone engaged and let things be spontaneous, making time to add to our itinerary where beneficial. We LOVED him! My favorite experience was hunting with the Bushman and learning about their culture. We also had a great interaction with some women in the...

Beyond Your Typical Family Safari I want to introduce to you to the Dolan Family, a family that traveled with us on our Serengeti Family Safari in Tanzania. They wanted an overview of Tanzania and the opportunity to experience the wildlife and cultural aspects of the country. I'm happy to report they accomplished A LOT more than that on their family safari in Tanzania.  I'll let Robin Dolan tell you a little bit about their trip: "We had some amazing, mind boggling experiences and memories like: watching a herd of elephants play in water with babies not knowing how to work their trunks quite right, watching needy kids dance and play and celebrate the things we brought them- truly warming our hearts entirely, warthog mamas hilariously chasing their babies, seeing the beautiful culture, interesting religion and outright poverty that create the ways of life of Tanzanians, monkeys attacking our empty Land Rover almost making off with...
Early Bird Special - $700 off Kenya Bushcamp Explorer if booked by November October is the month to make your safari dreams in Kenya come true! We're offering a $700 per person savings to launch our new Kenya Bushcamp Explorer for travel any time until April 15th, 2015 if we receive your reservation within the month of November. What makes this trip so special are the intimate safari camps set in private wilderness concessions with close connections to local Maasai communities. So when venturing on game drives you are not sharing your wildlife encounters with other vehicles as often happens in popular national parks, and here in private concessions there are plenty of opportunities for walking safaris with Maasai trackers on this active African safari through the rift valley. Please contact our Africa Program Director for more information on this offer or any of our safaris in Africa.  ...

The Safari That Changed My Life We originally went on a Wildland Adventures trip to Tanzania in 2002. It would be a vast understatement to say that our Wildland Adventure to Africa changed my life. As a child, I had watched Wild Kingdom and other nature programs on TV, but I never imagined that I might one day travel to Africa. My wife, Wendy, arranged our first trip working with Nicole from Wildland Adventures. It was a private tour with our three boys, aged 8, 14, and 16. We were met by a representative at the airport who took us to our hotel, where we subsequently met Ronald our driver and guide. Ronald stayed with us until we departed for Zanzibar. We spent two weeks exploring the Northern Circuit of game parks beginning with Sinya, a private game reserve and ending with six days in the Serengeti. Part of the time we were also accompanied by...
Once in a while a story comes along that sounds like something out of a fairytale and becomes a true inspiration for us all. Before I tell the tale let me give you the backstory. A few months ago the Whitaker family contacted our Africa Program Director, Jeff Stivers, and asked him to plan a Wildland Adventure to Tanzania over the New Year winter break. The Whitaker's mentioned that their kids like to make a positive local impact when they travel and asked us how they could contribute to one of the local communities they would be visiting. "Help us find out what they really need," they requested from us. After a few calls and a bit of research Jeff discovered a small orphanage called Pambazuko in the town of Mto Wa Mbu that needed some love. Jeff got a hold of the caretaker, Elias, and asked if the Whitaker...
