“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
We noticed this African proverb chiseled into the wall in the Johannesburg airport as we passed through there, and it perfectly describes our trip, which was perhaps the most personal travel experience we've ever had. We expected the expansive scenery and wildlife to be amazing, and anticipated that lodges/camps would be fabulous, but what also left a lasting impression was the people we met. We are most grateful for the gift of time and sincere hospitality from everyone at Merrueshi who led us into schoolrooms, dorms, clinic exam rooms and the lab...who talked story about social traditions under an acacia tree, or world politics over tea in the lobby pavilion, or community development around the dinner table...or graciously allowed us to visit their family homestead and even sit inside a traditional home built by their mother's own hands. Alyssa and Ray at Ol Donyo entertained Elaine and I like longtime...

Cats of all different kinds

When it comes to Africa aficionados, Mauree Talman tops our list. She has traveled to Africa a whopping five different times with Wildland Adventures, to both Eastern and Southern Africa. She’s visited Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Botswana and South Africa, and recently returned to some of her favorite haunts in East Africa. “This was probably the best Safari I’ve been on (so far)” Mauree says. “I took so many pictures, almost 4000, that I don’t know where to begin. Each time I go thru the photos, I’m reminded of a sighting I forgot, there were so many good ones to remember. When I booked this trip, my goal was to see as many of the big cats as I could. They are my favorite, along with the other predators. So going to the Serengeti and the Mara was perfect. I saw more cats in the first few days of this trip...

I fell in love with Africa

I fell in love with Africa
Guest review by Susan Marks from her Wildland Adventures custom safari in Kenya I fell in love with Africa in 2010 when I visited 4 different camps in Botswana . This time, I wanted to see a migration crossing so I chose a custom Kenya safari with Wildland Adventures. As I am also an avid equestrian, I wanted to visit a place where I could ride. My first outing was a sight-seeing day in Nairobi. My expert guide took me to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is a home for orphaned elephants. Visitors can see them between 11:00AM-12:00N every day while they play and enjoy huge bottles of baby formula. It is an amazing place where elephants are taken care of until they are old enough to be introduced back into the wild. Giraffe Manor was next where visitors can hand feed them. I then visited the Kazuri Bead...
