How I got engaged on safari in South Africa

How I got engaged on safari in South Africa
I have known Jeff Stivers since high school. We booked our custom South Africa safari with Wildland because of him but he and other staff took a lot of time to craft a unique and personalized experience full of authentic and unforgettable moments. I wanted to safari in Africa with my girlfriend and propose to her, and share a lasting memory on an amazing trip to start our time together. Jeff's intimate knowledge of our travel sites, as well as his personal friendship with our lodge's owners, led to a perfect proposal. He crafted the perfect engagement, from sunrise to sunset. We were treated to a private bush walk to view my fiance's favorite animal, a sunset, candle-lit dinner with champagne at the lodge's secluded bird hide, and most importantly, the perfect moment to propose. I can honestly say that Wildland's staff gave us the perfect engagement! We loved our experience...

Honeymoon was beyond my expectations

Honeymoon was beyond my expectations
Hi Jeff, I must say the trip was beyond my expectation. We had a blast and we will definitely book again with Wildland. The first two locations were wow. Especially the staff in Thonga were extremely nice and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic. In our opinion this was the best place in regards of food. We saw whales, did kayaking, enjoyed the beach, snorkeling, etc. The second location, Phinda Mountain Lodge , was absolutely amazing. Our ranger Tobi was just great. He was so into it. He was very enthusiastic, energetic, friendly, educational, etc. The game viewing was spectacular - we saw the big five up close within 24 hours. The best part was seeing the lions feeding from a zebra. It was very personal and exclusive. That was what we were looking for. Our South Africa Honeymoon Safari was absolutely fantastic. Thank you for the very detailed planning and organization....

4 Romantic Spots in Turkey

4 Romantic Spots in Turkey
1. The Bosphorus has been the center of Istanbul for ions and a cruise to one of the water-side restaurants there is a romantic pleasure. Take a local ferry to a high-end neighborhood such as Bebek to walk on the boardwalk and dine in a fabulous seafood restaurant such as Bebek Balıkçısı or Eleos in Beyoğlu.     2. Drink wine in an ancient theater. On our Turquoise Coast Odyssey , we like to stop for a glass of wine and perhaps a song or poetry in Simena, dating from the 4th century BC. How romantic to enjoy sunset while looking out to the Mediteranean.      3. The very streets of Kaş are romantic with bourgainevilla flowers blooming on blue-shuttered buidlings, cobblestone streets, and the bright blue sea . Spend the evening with dinner at a local restaurant on the Medan, town square, watching children play and other couples stroll...

Travelers Make Better Lovers

This photo really does says it all, traveling with your love is one of the most powerful experiences you can have togehter. When I took this photo I was traveling with a girlfriend and when we stumbled upon this sign it really made us realize how lucky we were to be traveling the world together. By far my best trips and memories have been spent traveling with someone I love. No matter what level or state the relationship was in, traveling together strenghted our bond. Traveling also gives you a chance to take your relationship to new heights. It gives you all the elements you need to build a better and stronger relationship: lots of time together (which, with our busy schedules doesn't happen as oftern as we like.), unforgettable memories, new expeirences, a reason to spoil each other and most importantly... it gives you a chance to leave all you...

Top 3 Places to Fall in Love in Ecuador

Top 3 Places to Fall in Love in Ecuador
Everyone knows that beaches are romantic, right? Walking barefoot in sand & surf, playing tag with the waves….awwww. But there are other natural locations that offer their own distinctive glow.  Here are my top 3 places to fall in love while traveling in Ecuador: The rainforest – Lazing in a hammock while a tropical storm sweeps through the verdant forest, leaving everything sparkling and sultry in its wake. A nighttime canoe paddles under star-studded skies, the sounds of the night forest alive all around you. Exhilarating and sensuous, all at the same time. At the top of my list is the  Napo Wildlife Center in Ecuador. It is located adjacent to 82 sq miles of Yasunì National Park and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the largest tract of protected tropical rain forest in Ecuador. The Mountains – Specifically an Andean hacienda, tucked away amidst volcanic peaks. Spend the day hiking alpine trails, horseback riding,...
