10 Reasons Why You Can and Should Climb Kilimanjaro versus Mount Rainier

10 Reasons Why You Can and Should Climb Kilimanjaro versus Mount Rainier
A volcano is a volcano right? WRONG! Kilimanjaro is quite a different mountain than Mount Rainier. Here are 10 reasons why you can and should climb Kilimanjaro with Wildland Adventures instead of Mount Rainier on your own:10) Climbing Kilmanjaro is non-technical – Kili requires no technical climbing gear. Warm clothes, a good sleeping bag and pad and a sturdy pair of hiking or mountaineering boots are as technical as it gets. Contrast that with Rainier where you’ll need ropes, harnesses, helmets, crampons, ice axes and full set of mountaineering skills and training including glacier travel and crevasse rescue. If that doesn’t convince you, the oldest person to climb Kili was 84. A regular exercise routine and time spent hiking uphill are all that you’ll need to do to get in shape for Kili.9) Kili is in a spectacular setting – Kili is surrounded by some of the greatest places in Africa...

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 a lifetime opportunity to be...

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 was the perfect ending to an unforgettable...

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 Datoga tribe where they...
