1_20170919-203908_1
​Jim and Donna recently embarked on a private departure of our  Serengeti Wilderness Safari and returned with rave reviews and tons of great photos. They especially enjoyed their day with the Hadzabe hunters, a nomadic group of people who still live entirely off the land like their ancestors have for thousands of years. Here are some of their ...

Marveling at gorgeous animals and amazing scenery every day in Tanzania

Marveling at gorgeous animals and amazing scenery every day in Tanzania
Bob, Carol, Michael and Leslie chose Wildland Adventures to plan their custom Tanzania safari last November. Highlights of the trip included both Tarangire National Park and the Serengeti. It also included the less-visited but equally impressive Ruaha and Selous game reserves in southern Tanzania. “I couldn't have been more prepared…You were willing to have extended discussions about details of camera equipment, what to take, descriptions of accommodations, etc.” All the camera preparation paid off with these up-close images that Michael was able to capture. “We loved Tarangire in part because it was first, also due to excellent guiding by Kevin. He is a gem! We saw a cheetah and a leopard kill first day! His knowledge on birds and animals is outstanding. The Serengeti is simply fabulous for what it is! We saw dozens and dozens of animals, with great guide location and access, patience and humor.” “A once in...

Happy Holidays to each and all

Happy Holidays to each and all
We received this delightful holiday letter from a family of alumni travelers and felt it was too good not to share: "This year a 17 day Tanzanian Safari with Wildland Adventures exceeded our greatest expectations. We spent long, full days in Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Parks where the extraordinary teeming abundance of wildlife led to up close and personal encounters with lions (100+), elephants, leopards, cheetah and way too many wildebeest , hippos, giraffes, impala, ect , to count.  And we had a private tour!  Our driver-guide spotted game at every turn while driving in our open top Toyota Land Cruiser on Tanzania's infamous roads. In addition to wildlife sightings, we had fascinating encounters with a few of the 120 tribal groups, including a walkabout with the primitive Hadzabe hunter/gatherers as they sought game with bow and arrows. Seeing a snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro as we left...

Cultural encounters were the surprise of our Tanzania Safari

Cultural encounters were the surprise of our Tanzania Safari
When the Kaplan family traveled to Tanzania on our Serengeti Family Safari in June they knew that they were in for some great wildlife. What was unexpected was the people that they met and the cultures that they experienced along the way. "The entire trip was fabulous. The highlight was actually the cultural encounters that we had. I expected the animal part of the safari but our visit with the Bushman was beyond anything I could imagine and my kids loved playing soccer, volleyball, and frisbee with the locals. Our guide Dominic was unbelievable. He was incredibly knowledgeable but was also a truly amazing person. He kept everyone engaged and let things be spontaneous, making time to add to our itinerary where beneficial. We LOVED him! My favorite experience was hunting with the Bushman and learning about their culture. We also had a great interaction with some women in the...

The Game drives were like being in a National Geographic Show

The Game drives were like being in a National Geographic Show
Wildland travelers, Dave Olander and Dan Wofsey, visited Tanzania on our Serengeti Wilderness Safari during the short rainy season of in February with their wives Jitka and Carol. Their trip covered the northern part of the country, traversing Tarangire National Park, the Lake Eyasi Basin, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. This can be a particularly excellent time to catch the great migration in the Southern Serengeti as the wildebeest prepare to calve in a two week long coordinated event. They recount their experience here: Jeff, I have had multiple trips to unusual places, but our trip to Tanzania was the best one. The game drives were like being in a National Geographic Show. A personal highlight for me was the animals. It was all about the animals, the exotic terrain, and the beauty of the place. I had high expectations and they were exceeded.  Our time with the Hadzabe was...
