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...

The Entire Trip Was Amazing

The Entire Trip Was Amazing
Listen to this solo female traveler share her experience of hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu ! “I had always wanted to see Machu Picchu, and for this trip I wanted something adventurous and physically challenging and Wildland Adventure’s Inca Trail Trek was the best I found! I loved the hike. The camp sites were awesome- I've never been so spoiled while hiking! Our guide, Elkin was awesome! Very knowledgeable, professional, and made sure that we all had everything we needed. The food on the trek was the most amazing- better than restaurant meals! I really appreciated that they made me vegetarian meals that were delicious. The entire trip was amazing. The people, the culture, the views, the trek... everything was wonderful.” To learn more about our Inca Trail Trek feel free to contact me. Your friendly South America Program Director, Gretchen

Mystical, Magical, Mysterious and Awe Inspiring

Mystical, Magical, Mysterious and Awe Inspiring
This couple just returned from almost a month of travel on a custom trip to Argentina and Peru adventure .  Gary recounts some of their favorite moments while in South America. “We had heard great feedback from my wife’s sister who went to Peru in the preceding year with Wildland. Wildland’s open approach, the low key nature of their interactions interspersed with enthusiasm at the highest level, and the feedback from more than one person were enough to ensure that we were going with "like minded" folks in selecting Wildland. It turned out to be absolutely the case. The entire itinerary was a fantastically put together sequence that we all worked together on. Great collaboration throughout. Our favorite memories of the trip were:  [In chronological order as they happened on the trip]: (1) Roaming around freestyle in Buenos Aires and staying at Legado Mitico while doing so. It's a magical and...

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 point ing 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...

A Very Unique Wildlife Experience

A Very Unique Wildlife Experience
Two of our alumni travelers just returned from a customized Manu Wildlife Safari adventure in Peru and share their thoughts on several aspects of the trip below: "FAVORITE EXPERIENCES: The one day KM 104 hike up to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate was the perfect way to enter the site for the first time. Hardly any one else on the trail, plenty of interesting info from our guide as we hiked. Great experience as one finally gets to the top and suddenly looks down on Machu Picchu. The macaw clay lick was also exceptional...a very unique wildlife experience. ON GUIDES: Both our guides William in Manu and Reuben in the Sacred Valley were excellent...Reuben in particular. I really enjoyed the fact that they shared information about their own lives and experiences with us. Both shared their experiences with the Shining Path, for instance. Lots of jokes and laughter ON ACCOMMODATIONS:...
