Why India? Why Now?

Why India? Why Now?
  Why travel to India? Because India is a country beyond adjectives: colorful, vibrant and exciting is not enough to describe this unique country. The variety of experiences you can have here is never-ending. Where else can you find a noble and stunning white marble monument to love, a wild river where you can spot jackals, crocodiles and river dolphins, and tall brick-making chimneys set among colorful mud-walled villages all within a 2-hour drive?   Why India? Because India has an amazing variety of wildlife and its National Parks and reserves are some of its best-kept secrets. Wildland's Tigers and Travels in the north includes several reserves where you have an excellent chance of seeing a tiger, not to mention gazelles, deer, wild dogs, monkeys, lemurs and so many beautiful birds. The south is home to elephant herds as well as wildcats, spotted deer, bison, any number of reptiles and birds,...

Going Wild

Torres_del_Paine-29
Hello fellow adventurers, My name is Jonathan Burnham and I am the newest member of the Wildand team. I will be the Marketing Manager here and I am ecstatic about going Wild. Trust me when I say you are going to see plenty of blogs from me covering everything from my travels with Wildland to news about what's going on in the adventure travel world. I figured since I'm the new kid on the blog I'd give you a little background about myself. I was born and raised in Southern California.  Family travel  was real important growing up and my Dad took me to visit National and State Parks all over the country, giving me the opportunity to learn about the diversity of natural habitats and their importance firsthand. I can say from experience that getting the opportunity to actually see how icebergs are made by calving glaciers in  Alaska  or how over a billion years...

What Makes Costa Rica Unique?

tree-frog-costa-rica Why is Costa Rica so special?
Costa Rica is an extraordinary country located in the Central American Isthmus, therefore the country has functioned as a bridge in the exchange of wildlife species between the continental masses of North and South America. There are very few places on earth that have as much diversity as Costa Rica , especially for the size of the country. Here are 7 reasons why Costa Rica is so exceptional: 1. Biodiversity   One morning in the Corcovado National Park at the Sirena Ranger Station , I observed tapirs (mom and calf), two anteaters, a family of coati, a family of peccaries, a sloth, three species of monkeys, tons of birds, insects, butterflies and the following morning a puma female with her two cubs and that is only the tip of the iceberg! Costa Rica has over 1,000 species of butterflies, over 1,200 varieties of orchids. over 850 species of birds, more than 130 species of...

Costa Rica: How to see Whales and Dolphins

humpback_Whale Dolphins and whales are always a highlight of Costa Rica
Costa Rica enjoys one of the most biologically diverse ocean ecosystems in the world. This is mainly because the heart of this vast habitat is known as the Costa Rican Thermal Convection Dome (named for its proximity to this country) lies here. Shallow warm waters lie on top of low-oxygen cold water, creating the perfect ecosystem for a vast variety of marine life. Whales (orcas, pilot, humpbacks, beaked, brydes), dolphins, tuna, marlin, manta rays, sea turtles, sailfish and more, congregate in this area taking advantage of the rich waters year-round. The humpback whales visit us from two separate hemispheres, giving us the longest humpback season in the world. The great whales come to our warm protected waters from December to April from Alaska and again between August and the end of November from Antarctica .   It’s easy to spot humpback whales since they live at the ocean’s surface, both in...
