Still So Excited by the Huge Variety of Birds We Were Able to Capture on Film

Still So Excited by the Huge Variety of Birds We Were Able to Capture on Film
This adventurous couple just returned from a 17-day customized Manu Wildlife Safari Overland Adventure. After visiting Cusco, The Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, several areas of the Amazon, the Colca Canyon and Arequipa, see what wisdom they have to share! “The trip was amazing; it enabled us to see many aspects of Peru--from Machu Picchu that we had heard so much about to the huge variety of animals (especially birds!) We really enjoyed the overall impression of Peru--so many aspects! We loved all the ruins and terraces that illustrated how vast the Inca influence was and surprisingly how much was pre-Inca. Fascinating to see how much remains the same. Two of our favorite experiences were:1) The Amazonia Lodge en route to Manu National Park- there were so many great birds!2) In Arequipa, we saw "juanita", the ice maiden: definitely worth it—fascinating!   Our guides were good! Vignor was very knowledgeable on all...

A Wonderful Experience in Peru

A Wonderful Experience in Peru
Guest review from two alumni travelers who, with a group of their friends, just completed our Manu Wildlife Safari Overland Adventure: Andes and Amazon in Peru! “We had a wonderful experience in Peru. Our guides (Ruben & William) were fabulously friendly, had great senses of humor, and had great stores of knowledge about Inca and cultural history, flora and fauna. William's ability to imitate bird calls or reproduce them using his Iphone to lure them, then pointing them out to us with his laser was amazing in allowing us to view them. A fond memory was catching Piranha with William in an Oxbow lake. Ruben told tales of bullfights featuring condors and bulls and his own experience with an Alto Misayoc seeking treatment for his friend 6 years ago. A favorite memory is listening to a choir of Quechuans in traditional dress, singing in the Cusco Cathedral, a very haunting and heart-piercing experience. The...

Peru Travel for 2015!

Peru Travel for 2015!
Now that the new year is starting to pick up pace, I wanted to take the time to plant the seed of excitement for Peru travel in 2015 and share my experiences from my trip last year. In August, I set out to Peru for four weeks of exploring the contrasting, ancient-modern urban centers, traversing the Inca Trail, piranha fishing and swimming in the Amazon, boating on Lake Titicaca, and eating the best ceviche of my life in a quiet fishing village on the sea, all the while surrounded by warm, inviting and inspiring people. After having lived between Seattle and Argentina for almost nine years, Peru was an exciting window to another invigorating facet of Latin America’s rich diversity.   CUSCO My trip to Peru began in Cusco and it was largely a sensory experience. At 11,150 ft, I recall stepping out of the plane in Cusco and feeling the...

How To Find Your Lost Luggage Before The Airline Does

Has your bag been one of the roughly 2 million pieces of luggage that arrives late to the destination every year? It can happen anywhere but it seems to happen more often for our travelers flying long haul with multiple connections especially in winter with flight delays. Most often we see it happen to guests flying to South America and for their African safari via Nairobi, Arusha or Johannesburg than any other Wildland Adventures destination. Once your bag does make to the gateway city, we'll see that it is transported to you on safari, in the Galapagos, or wherever you may be. The tool to track your lost luggage.  Once you arrive and discover your bag is not on the carousel you must file a claim at which point you may experience resistance from overworked baggage claim personnel just giving you the runaround. Knowing where your luggage is before the airline...
