Botswana and Zambia Safari

Botswana and Zambia Safari
Wild couple, Bill and Gregory just returned from their 10-day Wildland safari in Botswana and Zambia  and according to Bill, " We had a heck of a time and the fact that you pulled off all of the logistics is astounding. The places we stayed were absolutely awesome and the people amazing. Wildland did a really good job. " Both guests had previously traveled with Wildland to Peru and were able to apply their Wildland Alumni Loyalty discount to this trip to see the Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls and safari. They rated their guides as " darn good"  particularly their " guide Russ at Pelo was absolutely awesome; Jacob in the Lower Zambezi was very good and the same for John and Prince at the Luwi and Nsolo bush camps in South Luangwa ." These travelers ate well along the way too, " all the meals were very good, with the outstanding...

Wild South Africa!

Wild South Africa!
Abby S. and Steve B. chose an off-the-beaten-path custom itinerary for their South African holiday this past Fall.  A particular highlight from their trip was spending time in the Drakensberg mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The steep cliffs of these mountains surround Lesotho and are so rugged that there is only one break where a 4x4 road could be built to access the mountain kingdom at Sani Pass. "The hiking is superb. A variety of trails, in terms of length, altitude gain/loss, and views, depart directly from the resort. The views are stunning; kind of like the highlands of Scotland. Most trails are well-marked, and a map purchased at reception was serviceable. We saw elands, baboons, and raptors while hiking, and beautiful flowers." Abby and Steve also enjoyed seeing some spectacular wildlife viewing at Tanda Tula Lodge in Timbavati private game reserve as well as at Phinda Mountain Lodge in...

Heart Pounding Mokoro Ride in Botswana's Okavango Delta

Heart Pounding Mokoro Ride in Botswana's Okavango Delta
Our Great Wilderness Journey in Botswana was absolutely amazing!  I don’t think we could have had a better guide. Francis Kudomo was so knowledgeable about everything from animals to stars to the history of Botswana.  He was hospitable, patient, and accommodating.  He knew the wildlife like the back of his hand and in a short time we trusted him.  He was so thorough in making sure all our bags were with us before each flight, in going over camp rules, letting us know the plans for each day the night before.  With four women on our safari he was very patient with frequent loo stops.  He never minded.  What a great guy!    We had never gone anywhere with a tour before and I don’t think we could have had a better group.  We were all like-minded in so many ways and meshed very well.  We were probably one of the most talkative...

Hanging Over The Victoria Falls

Hanging Over The Victoria Falls
A short interview with Kim Newton of Washington, who planned a custom Botswana safari with a group of friends: How was your trip? All the camps and the activities were wonderful and memorable. In Linyanti often you would see multiple types of animals and birds dotted along the length of the shore simultaneously. For instance, one day you could see baboons in the foreground, impalas and warthogs in the mid-ground, elephants crossing the water in the distance, not to speak of all the birds everywhere. We really enjoyed the rookery when we were at Camp Kanana. We were having dinner when the termite hatching occurred after the first rain of the season at Kanana. We were swarmed in the lodge – it was a little freaky to be swarmed by the flying termites, but also very amazing. It only happens once or twice a year after the first rain. Our extra...
