Exploring Regions of Argentina
Travel to Argentina: Seamlessly combining various region within one trip

Planning your first trip to the wine and tango capital of South America? Or maybe you've had a taste of Buenos Aires' vibrant culture and you want to now dive back in for a more extensive Argentine adventure? Argentina is a country that is as long as the United States is wide, covering numerous geographical regions and landscapes. When planning a 10-14 day trip, it can often be daunting trying to figure out just how to see it ALL. Having lived between Argentina and Seattle for almost nine years, South America Program Director, Gretchen Traut, will share experiences, tantalizing images and useful information on the different regions of Argentina and how to successfully go about combining them into one, fluid, master itinerary. Join us on journey through the lush green forests of Iguazu, the multicolored desert mountains of the Juyjuy, the highest vineyards in the world in Salta, the Mecca of Malbec in Mendoza, the Patagonian wildlife refuge of Peninsula Valdes, the hiker's haven of El Chalten, the wonders of the fastest advancing glacier in El Calafate, and finally, the Paris of the south: Buenos Aires. For more information on some of Wildland's top Argentina itineraries, check out: Wines, Cultures & Canyonlands: Mendoza and the Northwest, Best of Argentina and Argentina Wildlife Adventure.

Exploring Tanzania
Tanzania is considered by many in the safari industry as one of the top wildlife countries on the African continent.
Our presenter fell in love with Africa as an Anthropology student in 1993, while bouncing along Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda in an overland vehicle. The dramatic Ngorongoro crater, sprawling Serengeti, and abundance of wildlife in parks like Lake Manyara and Tarangire were, and still are, impressive. It is the people of Tanzania though that leave a lasting impression. Learn options for exploring Tanzania on safari and best times to go in terms of rates, seasons, wildlife, and the wildebeest migration from Erica Varga of Acappella Safaris.

Adventures in Morocco
Travel to Morocco on an all encompassing odyssey following ancient caravan routes of the Maghreb. This program delves deep into the exotic culture and diverse landscapes from the walled Imperial Cities seemingly suspended in time, through scenic high-Atlas Mountain passes and cliff-clinging kasbahs, among remarkably well preserved Roman ruins, and riding camels through the shifting dunes of the mighty Sahara to our camp in the desert. Colorful and vibrant Marrakech and the medieval souks of the Fez medina are introductions to Morocco's rich culture of art and craft. What really makes a Morocco Wildland Adventure extraordinary are connections in local communities and the gregarious hospitality, flavorful cuisine and lavish Moorish-style of the boutique accommodations. Our in-depth exploration of the Magreb's history and culture lifts the veil on a society balanced between an enchanting past and a vibrant role in the modern world. Hosted by Wildland Adventures Founder Kurt Kutay.

Southern Africa: Namibia, Botswana & Zambia
The first question you need to ask yourself when contemplating a safari in Africa is where to go. For most safari-goers it boils down to a question of East vs. Southern Africa. Southern Africa is host to some of the world's most unique places, for example, the Skeleton Coast and Namib Desert of Namibia, the Okavango Delta of Botswana, and Victoria Falls of Zambia/Zimbabwe. The gateway to southern Africa, South Africa, should also not be overlooked, particularly the Cape Town region. Join Erica Varga of Acappella Safaris for an exploration of southern Africa. Key features and areas of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zambia will be highlighted as well as best ways to combine travel among those countries.

Bhutan: Land of Gross National Happiness
A mysterious Himalayan kingdom, Bhutan is a serene place where Buddhism is the essential fiber interwoven throughout daily life. Intense storms in these dramatic mountains gave Bhutan its name which means “Land of the Thunder Dragon.” The landscape of deep valleys, lush forests and striking mountains is treasured by the Bhutanese people. Wildlife such as the golden langur, endangered snow leopard, black-necked crane and takin, the national animal of Bhutan, call this stunning country home. Bhutan maintained its independence for hundreds of years and remained closed to the outside world until 1974. Today, the country remains off the beaten path: full of vibrant culture and natural wonders that few people have the chance to experience. Bhutan's constitutional monarchy aims to preserve traditional Bhutanese values and a quality of life that centers around spiritual values which has been famously measured in terms of “Gross National Happiness.” Come learn about this unique country and get a sensory immersion into the cultural and artistic spirit of Bhutan.

Galapagos for the Holiday Season
What are you doing for Christmas in 2015? How about New Years Eve? Yes, I know those dates seem a lifetime away. Now. But the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador rank at the top of Wildland Adventures' most popular holiday destinations. And why not? The weather is perfect - 65-80's and only a trace of rain, the iconic wildlife is in mating or hatching season, with lots of activity on every island, the kayaking and snorkeling are at their best, and the gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage city of Quito is decked out in beautiful holiday attire and celebrations. We sold out of ALL of our holiday space for December 2014 by the end of January 2014! That's nearly a year in advance. This upcoming season we have more dates, more cabin space, and more variety of accommodations - from the uber family-friendly yachts of Eric, Flamingo and Letty to the classic elegance of the M/Y Grace (named for her former owner, Princess Grace) to the casual luxury and spaciousness of the M/V Eclipse. Come meet Program Director, Sherry Howland, and see why you should be considering the Galapagos and Ecuador for your holiday plans. Cheers!
