 India, is a vast and splendid land of divergent cultures and cuisines – or, as Paul William Roberts would say, to the “empire of the soul.” We’ll steer you through a spectacular labyrinth of sights and mysteries to bring out the wonders of this sub-continent: battlements of Rajasthan's opulent palaces, the Taj Mahal and Varanasi on the Ganges River in the north; wild jungles and tiger habitats of central India; and tropical Malabar backwaters and plantations of the Spice Hills in the south. You’ll be enveloped by the warmth and hospitality of India’s people: in the old city of Jodphur where you’re invited to the private home of the Sankahla family for lunch; in Bandhavharh and Kanha National parks when the local guides and conservationist detail passionately their struggle to bring tigers back from the brink of extinction; and in the rural villages of Rajasthan when we dine with royal family descendants who tell us about daily Indian life.

The Berkvam family just returned from traveling to Asia on an expansive journey from Delhi to Bhutan to Kathmandu. They explored the busy streets of Delhi and watched the sun rise behind the Taj Mahal then jetted off to Bhutan for a full week of exploring this remote nation. After attending the Paro tsechu (festival) and getting to meet Bhutanese royalty they continued on to Kathmandu for a quick day of exploring Nepal's capital. Here's a little more directly from the Berkvams:

How to Choose the Right Tiger Park in India

DSC_0324
India is home to 70% of the world’s remaining tigers. These majestic cats have been making a fantastic comeback due to conservation efforts after being on the verge of endangered just 20 years ago. Seeing one of these big cats is a once in a lifetime experience and there is no better place than on a trip to India to check that item off the bucket list. While it is easy to get lost in the eye of the tiger, there are many other factors to take into account when choosing a park including but not limited to quality of lodges, naturalists as well as other flora and fauna.This blog is going to focus specifically on the national parks of Madhya Pradesh (MP), considered the epicenter for tiger sightings in India. MP is also great because they offer full day permits if you’re really interested in seeing tigers. You get to...

A Day in the Life of a Jungle Safari in India

tiger-rocks7
Days spent on jungle safaris in India are different than any other you’ll experience on your adventure. With a minimum of 2 nights at a lodge and 3 nights highly recommended you’ll fall into a routine. You wake up with the sun and fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and a full belly. You'll spend hours riding around in a jeep searching for animals and hours relaxing in your room or by the pool. I’ll try to outline to the best I can what a typical day looks like in the jungles of India.Note: These were the times for when I was visiting in October. The times change with the season as the park gate opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. In the heart of winter, you’ll find later start times and earlier exit times.5:00 – Wakeup knock on your door.5:15 – Tea, coffee, and snacks. Nothing like a...

Returning to Nepal: the most fun we have had anywhere in this world

Returning to Nepal: the most fun we have had anywhere in this world
Message from Wildland alumni after returning from a custom trip to India and Nepal.Dear Wildland, Debbie, Jesse and I returned home safely.  We have had some really great trips in our lives, but this was the best.  Outstanding, fantastic.  Despite the ungodly heat and monsoon rains, we never had a better time.  Everything was seamless without any aggravation or confusion. Your itinerary was perfect as regards what we wanted to see... There was always cold bottled water on hand.  If we wanted some "street food" the guides knew where to go and we NEVER got sick. All of the guides and drivers were helpful and the guides were extremely knowledgeable.  Having travelled to India and Nepal many years ago, I was afraid that the trip might be "too sanitized" and my family would not experience the real India.  The guides took care of that and were more than happy to guide us through the...
