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...

Having a great time in Turkey We love getting little notes from our travelers while they are still on their trip! Laura, Jan and I are having a great time in Turkey. Our guides have all been very professional, as well as friendly; the food has been delicious at all the restaurants they've selected, and the sights have been splendid. I don't want to forget to add that the hotels have all been really special. Dave and Jan are traveling on our Highlights of Turkey Adventure Photo is of Jan and their Turkey guide Deniz Killic...

All three generations had a wonderful time Message and trip report for a custom trip to Turkey designed by our Turkey program director Laura Finkelstein.  Hi Laura, To get straight to the bottom line, the trip was an overwhelming success. Exceeded even my own expectations -- which were very, very high. All three generations had a wonderful time. This was tied for the best trip we have taken with Wildland -- right up there with Peru/Amazon. We all just loved Turkey, and actually are seriously thinking about returning next year to see more of the country. Thanks for planning such an amazing family adventure. Best, Patrick Machado Patrick's Trip Report: What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? There were so many highlights, but the gulet was probably the best. It was extremely relaxing and unstructured, and there was something to do for everyone. The crew really pampered us. There were lots of long faces in our group...

Back from our adventures in the Galapagos and Ecuador Dear Sherry and Kurt, We are back from our adventures in the Galapagos and Ecuador, and want to THANK YOU both for once again doing everything to make sure we had a fantastic experience!! Sherry, we can't thank you enough for steering us toward the Athala catamaran, and managing to get us on at the last minute. The boat was fantastic, as you know - and the crew really wonderful. We were completely spoiled, and had a blast with the other passengers - such a fun group. Again, all our thanks - Kim (Jeff, Sam, and James) Seely ...

Finding The Heart of Turkey This week we heard back from Christine Ye and Jeffery Marso who spent 2 weeks in Turkey with their daughters on our new Heart of Turkey Family Adventure which includes a 2 night stay at a village south of Cappadocia. They really enjoyed the homestay and their guide who joined them there. “My favorite experience was the home stay.  I loved the small town atmosphere.  The people were so friendly, generous and welcoming in the villages as well as at our homestay. Fondest Homestay memories:  I got up early most mornings to run before the others got up.   One morning I ran into town and was greeted by a small herd of goats with 2 women herding them.  Even the goats were friendly!  They swarmed around me  eyeing me with curiosity while the women tried to coax them back onto the road.  We were all laughing and enjoying the...
