Tigers and Palaces of India
To quote Paul William Roberts, India is the "Empire of the Soul." Wildland Adventures' Director, Kurt Kutay, has traveled extensively throughout India and will share his experiences searching for the elusive Bengal tiger, on the Ganges in Varanasi, exploring Rajasthan, and on to the soaring temples, tropical Malabar backwaters and plantations of the Spice Hills in the south. The program features segments of an action-packed documentary movie produced by an Indian filmmaker of Wildland's Tigers and Travels adventure to the tiger parks in Madhya Pradesh (including exceptional footage of tigers), the deserts, villages, historic cities and majestic forts and opulent palaces of Rajasthan, the Taj Mahal, the spiritual city of Varanasi. Kurt will share his personal stories of recent travels to India and opportunities to stay in Maharaja's palaces, home-stay on a cardamom spice plantation, riding elephants and searching for tigers, and exploring the great Rajasthani cities of Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur, the Taj Mahal, and the erotic temples of Khajuraho, including what to see and do in Delhi.

Acappella Safaries
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!
