Enjoy Your Room With More Than A View

IMG_5653
We just received a review from a guest recently returning from their custom Wildland Adventure in Patagonia. They couldn't get into the luxury Eolo Lodge by the time they planned their trip so we set them up at the all-inclusive Alta Vista, another one of our favorites near the Moreno Glacier in Argentina. She made the observation that they wish they had more time to enjoy Alta Vista..."it's expensive and it's beautiful, we wanted to experience it more." Hosteria Alta Vista is a small, authentic home and working estancia between Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park for your Patagonia vacation. This seven-room hosteriía was built by Yugoslav pioneers in 1920 as part of Estancia Anita, the area's largest working sheep farm. Its secluded setting in the Patagonian steppe is only 22 miles from El Calafate and a short drive to the spectacular Moreno Glacier. Like many of the estancias and boutique Argentine hosterias...

12 Miles of Paradise

Guest Author Brad Nahill I’ve done a lot of jungle hiking but never at night and never at this pace. We moved quickly through the rainforest, hurrying to the beach at the end of the trail, in the hopes of arriving in time to put a satellite transmitter on a black turtle currently on the beach. The rumble of far-off thunder faded into the sound of crashing waves as we crested a hill near the end of the trail. Our destination was Brasilon Beach, within the La Flor Wildlife Refuge in the southwestern corner of Nicaragua . This beach is one of several turtle nesting beaches along this stretch of coast protected by Paso Pacifico , an innovative young conservation organization. Paso Pacifico focuses on protecting the “Paso del Istmo”, an incredibly beautiful 12-mile stretch of land between Lake Nicaragua and the Pacific Ocean. I had arrived to this incredible corner of Nicaragua...

Can Africa Style Wildlife Tourism be Brought to India?

Guest Blog by Amit Sankhala   Around the world when we talk about wildlife tourism, the first instinct of any traveler is – ‘Let’s go to Africa. They have the Big 5’. Although, when we compare mammals, India has the big 5 and more – Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Rhinoceros and the Leopard. In addition to these African Big 5, we have the Royal Bengal Tiger, which alone stands as the most attractive of all. We have all seen the news in the last few weeks, criticizing wildlife tourism in India. Are we that unregulated? And is the argument – ‘this is not Africa’, allow us to ignore the African models? In my book, no. I have been to Africa a few times, they have great models that allow humans and animals to coexist. But unlike Africa, India has rainforest, deserts and savanna land. There isn’t one guideline for national park’s or conservancies...

Splurging in India

It may surprise you that India is one of the best places to splurge and to be treated like royalty for a day or a week! You can dine using gold-plated silverware at Taj Rambagh Palace (yes, a real palace!) in Jaipur or be serenaded by a flute-player while gazing over Udaipur city on your swing at Taj Lake Palace. You can journey to the Himalayas for a yoga retreat or down south on a boat sailing the waters of Kerala where all your meals are cooked fresh for from local produce. Or enjoy a private classical Indian concert at the home of local musicians. On some  trips to India , we westay at the Taj Lake Palace which is set in the middle of Lake Pichola in Udaipur, Rajasthan. It was built from 1743 – 1746 by the former Maharana Jagat Singh II as a royal summer palace. To reach...
