Botswana and Zambia Safari

Botswana and Zambia Safari
Wild couple, Bill and Gregory just returned from their 10-day Wildland safari in Botswana and Zambia  and according to Bill, " We had a heck of a time and the fact that you pulled off all of the logistics is astounding. The places we stayed were absolutely awesome and the people amazing. Wildland did a really good job. " Both guests had previously traveled with Wildland to Peru and were able to apply their Wildland Alumni Loyalty discount to this trip to see the Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls and safari. They rated their guides as " darn good"  particularly their " guide Russ at Pelo was absolutely awesome; Jacob in the Lower Zambezi was very good and the same for John and Prince at the Luwi and Nsolo bush camps in South Luangwa ." These travelers ate well along the way too, " all the meals were very good, with the...

Elephants of Mfuwe Lodge

Elephants of Mfuwe Lodge
Now is the season when the mango tree at Mfuwe Lodge is fruiting, and their large, grey, wrinkled guests start arriving. Watch these funny guests checking in for the annual stay and share the fun with your Facebook friends: From one generation to the another, mothers teach their offspring that there is a delicious big mango tree in the courtyard of the lodge, but they have to pass through the lobby to get there!  Watch the little ones negotiating the stairs...the fruit is just too tempting so they figure out how to negotiate the challenging footing.  During our South Luangwa Wild Walking Safari last May we woke up one morning at Mfuwe to a knock on our door and the jeep at our porch. "Mam, there are lions outside your door. If you want to go to breakfast now, please get in the vehicle and we will drive you to...

Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia

Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia
This week our Wild Zambia Safari was featured in the New York Times as one of "10 African Adventures Answering the Call of the Wild and Comfort."  Here's what the New York Times had to say:  "For travelers seeking a more active safari than most drive-focused itineraries, Wildland Adventures has introduced a 10-day Wild Zambia Safari that includes long hikes and passage by canoe as well as four-wheel drive safari vehicles in visits to South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Trips start at Victoria Falls and are largely divided between two remote but comfortable wilderness camps . Travelers will walk the five miles between them (with luggage shuttled forward), tracking buffalo, giraffe and elephant en route. The adventurous can add an optional night of camping under the stars in South Luangwa to the itinerary." Our Wild Zambia Safari is truly a one-of-a-kind adventure. Wildland founders, Kurt and Anne Kutay,...

Walking Safari in Zambia was just what we were hoping for

Walking Safari in Zambia was just what we were hoping for
Our Wild Walking Safari in Zambia was just what we were hoping for. There were so many animals, each day was different and had opportunities we hadn’t seen before. Each drive or walk had something new for us to observe. We have some amazing pictures! The extension of going to see Victoria Falls and staying at Islands of Siankaba was also perfect! It allowed us to be rested and ready for the safari and Victoria falls was incredible. No words can do it justice- it just has to be experienced! I highly recommend the Elephant back safari and also the Helicopter flight over the falls. They were "the rest of the story" type of experiences and we were very glad that we participated in them. Islands of Siankaba was a dream of a place to stay, and again the people were so friendly and anxious to make sure everything was...

Lots of Lovely Leopards in Luangwa

My five year old says that the letter of the day is ‘L’! And we’re talking about leopards.  Over the years at Wildland I’ve had many people say to me “What I’d really like to see is a leopard” . Though one of the Big 5, leopards are often tough to spot. In East Africa you usually see one on a trip, but you’re lucky if you see more than one and you may see no leopards. In Southern Africa it can be much the same, depending on where you are. Leopards are masters of stealth and spend a lot of time in trees, either resting or dragging a kill up there to enjoy at their leisure. With their spots they’re extremely well-camouflaged when the leaves of the branches rustle in the breeze. So where to go if you want to see leopard? The South Luangwa National Park in Zambia ....
