Facts about capuchin monkeys, come and see them in the wild!

One of the most gracious animals you'll find in the jungles of Central America and probably the one most travelers love to see in the wild are the capuchin monkeys. The capuchin monkeys are New World monkeys of the subfamily Cebinae and here are a few facts about them: What do they eat? These mammals are omnivores. They normally feed on buds, seeds, fruits, nuts but also consume bird’s eggs, spiders, small invertebrates and other insects. They also love to wander by the water where they can find crabs and shellfish. They are very intelligent creatures who use tools such as stones to crack open nuts, shellfish and crabs, watch them in action in the video below! How long do they live? They live up to 45 years in captivity while in the wild their lifespan is about 15 to 20 years. The males reach maturity after 4 years while the females become...

A Well of Inspiration in Tanzania   Many times over the years, Wildland travelers have truly awed us with their generosity and humility. But it’s even more of an inspiration when that person is only 12 years old!   During her Wildland Serengeti Family Safari, 12 year old Jamie visited the Mikocheni Primary School alongside our guide Hadji. What she discovered left a lasting impression, moving Jamie to make it her mission to assist the school and local community through building a well.  There is no source of water near the school and the children must carry their own water, in some cases walking up to 6 miles. This project will provide fresh water within easy reach of the thirsty students. Watch this short video, created (and sung!) by Jamie and her 3 older siblings, outlining her plan to improve the quality of life for the children of Mikocheni School.     We continually donate to...

One of the most amazing things I have ever seen Susan and her family just returned from our Sacred Lands of the Incas Adventure and was amazed by Machu Picchu, Cusco and the people they met while in Peru. “I appreciated all the information that you sent and found it very helpful. We were able to get a good background from this information and the books you suggested. Machu Picchu was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. It was truly fascinating and I am inspired to research and read more about these people and their way of life. We also found the time in and around Cusco to be fascinating. Walking through some of the villages and seeing how the people live and go about their daily activities was eye-opening. I watched one woman trudge up a hill to a village outside Cusco. She was wearing typical garb with a hat and brightly colored skirt. Her...
Is the Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National park for kids? ABSOLUTELY! Some of our wilder Wildland family travelers want their children to experience the most secluded, pristine and off-the-beaten-path areas of Costa Rica!  This was the case with Katherine and Jeremy, two nature lovers who wanted to show their children (Oscar and Lucia) the magic of the lush tropical forest. They decided their first trip would be to Costa Rica to visit the Osa Peninsula and Manuel Antonio.  Here is what they shared about their: "Hi Grettel, Thanks for helping us plan such a wonderful trip! It truly exceeded all our expectations. In particular, I am so thankful that you encouraged us to visit the Osa and La Paloma Lodge at Drake Bay which was the highlight of our trip.
