2012 Inspirations

  It has been an amazing year here at Wildland Adventures as we wrap up our 25th year of sharing amazing adventures around the globe with our extraordinary guests. Here are some of our personal inspirations from 2012. Kirsten Guiding with my partner in Patagonia was the realization of a dream; working in the beautiful outdoors with the person I love and helping others discover and challenge themselves on our adventure. I'm very thankful to have been given that opportunity. Jeff At 97 years of age my grandfather (a mentor, worldly adventurer and pioneer in cardiac surgery) passed away unexpectedly while I was exploring Bali this year with my wife and our Wildland Adventures guide. At 50 years old our guide Katut turned out to be deep into his studies of Balinese Hinduism and actively pursuing the path towards spiritual enlightenment. Winding through the back roads of Bali I shared with...

Botswana Named Top Destination in 2013

Fodor’s just recently named Botswana as one of the top destinations to visit in 2013 and for good reason. Safaris in Botswana are THE place to go for a truly WILD adventure into the Africa Wilderness, far away from signs of human development like fences, roads, and cities. Botswana’s, and perhaps Africa’s crown jewel, The Okavango Delta is widely known as the Garden of Eden. The world’s richest and largest inland delta system is home to some of the last great herds of iconic mammals such as elephants, buffalo and zebra. Travelers experience the wilderness from the comforts of a tented camp, either permanent or mobile, and thus there is no “commuting” to the wildlife like in other parks and reserves. The Kalahari Desert often is traveled to as an extension to the Reserves and Parks like Okavango and Chobe with stunning open vistas, unique Kalahari game viewing, interactions with local Bushman and...

Highlights of East Africa

I just confirmed a great custom safari in East Africa for two Wildland travelers that I'm calling the ‘Highlights of East Africa’ combining some of the best of Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. Recently I've received interest from several guests who have 20 or more days for their African safari vacation which gives me an opportunity to plan a really diverse and in-depth itinerary to many different habitats and to visit several native communities. In this recent case, they called to share their interests and style of travel; they are active people who like to take photographs, walk, hike, take pictures, visit local schools and markets and they were really keen to stay long enough in each country to really get a sense of the people and culture. They described themselves as adventurous but mentioned that they also enjoy the creature comforts of good food, beautiful camps and lodges and a warm...

Costa Rica and India - End of the World

We asked Wildland President Kurt Kutay and Wildland Vice President Anne Kutay where they would go if December 21, 2013 was really the end of the world....     Kurt Kutay I would return to Costa Rica, that's where it all started for me when I worked for their National Park Service. The rainforest feels like home to me, the Garden of Eden from whence most creatures have evolved and can still be found today. The Mayan calendar reminds us to live every day and we are encouraging everyone to even start to research how and when they can make that special journey, even our team at Wildland.     Anne Kutay I would return to India! Why do I want to go back? Because after one trip there I feel I do not understand the mystery that is India. Perhaps it can’t be explained and must be experienced. I would want to savor...

Travel to Namibia - End of the World

  Photo by Dan Allen If the world was truly coming to an end, I would travel to Namibia and explore the amazing landscapes of Damaraland. It is one of the most remote destinations in the world with a low population density and is enchantingly beautiful, especially the night skies. I would make sure to stop for lunch at the Ugab Save the Rhino Trust Camp, an organization singly responsible for helping these rare animals survive and thrive, making this the region with the world’s largest concentration of Black rhino outside of national parks. Then maybe climb to the top of the Brandberg Mountain (the second largest monolith in the world), I'm sure I'd find some amazing views from the top. If I could only bring a couple of things with me, I would bring a rifle and a bushman guide to help me find water and food in order to survive the...
