New Bedouin Trek to Petra

Are you looking for something completely new? Do you feel yourself slipping into a “been there/done that” funk? I have the cure! My name is Sherry Howland and I am the Jordan program director for Wildland Adventures and I'm here to tell you that our new  Bedouin Trek to Petra is a one-of-a-kind adventure you won't just find on every travel site. In fact, you will find it with Wildland Adventures alone. Pioneered by Yamaan Safady , one of Jordan’s most respected adventure guides, the Bedouin Trek to Petra was created by Yamaan after months spent living with the Bedouin tribes in the remote interior of Jordan, tracing their timeless nomadic routes and establishing the best campsites along the way.     Sherry and Yamaan share a laugh, one of many, trekking for 5 days into the back side of Petra  through the desert, mountains and wadis (canyons) of Jordan.   As...

South Africa Honeymoon Safari

  Any romantics out there? This past year I married the love of my life, but I proposed to her on a safari in South Africa last year. I couldn't have dreamed that I would have gotten such an extraordinary chance to propose to the woman I love in such an amazing place and it certainly did not hurt that we were treated like royalty at the  Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge .

An unbelievably magical and romantic experience that we will forever cherish.     Africa has always been close to my heart having spent so much of my young life studying and working at...

New Adventures in Central America

    As Wildland Adventures Central America program director I'm excited to share what's new in our lineup for Central America this year. Take a look at where and why we added a few amazing trips for 2013. Costa Rica The Osa Peninsula Wildland Adventure is a pretty new and unique Costa Rica Vacation  that focuses on the southern Pacific coast. We cover the Northern area of the Park (Drake Bay and San Pedrillo Station), the Central area (Sirena Station which is the heart of the National Park) and the Southern part of the National Park (Salsipuedes, La Leona, Carate) and of course time to explore the Lapa Rios private rainforest reserve. I personally don’t know of any company that offers a trip involving 3 of the main stations of the Corcovado National Park from an upscale point of view but also with an option to stay a night or two longer at the Sirena station...
