We had a fantastic 10-day trip to Ecuador!  Starting in Quito, we strolled around the colonial heart of the city before flying out to the Galapagos Islands.  We hiked, snorkeled, and kayaked our way across Santa Cruz, Floreana, and Isabela islands experiencing amazing food, landscapes, and the unique wildlife of the Galapagos.

Great Elephant Safari

October 2022

This 13-day safari was all about elephants!  We traveled to Botswana & Zimbabwe, following the ancient elephant migration paths to learn about elephant natural history and conservation.  With game drives, bush walks, and a unique wildlife viewing blind, we experienced many up-close encounters with elephants, lions, cheetahs, and even some rhinos.

Kilimanjaro Climb

September 2022

This was the trip of a lifetime for me and my guests.  We followed the Lemosho Route on a 6-day trek to the roof of Africa-Kibo Peak at 19,300 feet.  It was a challenging hike but our guides provided expert advice, comfortable camps, and hot food at every meal.  Following Kili, we then explored Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.

Authentic Tanzania

March 2022

On this 14-day safari we explored the stunning wildlife parks of northern Tanzania.  Starting in Arusha we visited Tarangire National Park with its great herds of elephants and forests of baobab trees.  We continued to Ngorongoro Crater and experienced some incredible lion sightings.  From here we drove to Serengeti to see the end of the calving season in the south and then up to central Serengeti to find lots of cheetahs and other big cats.  Superb guiding and lodging made for a memorable safari!

The 3 Worlds of Ecuador

October 2021

On this 13-day journey across Ecuador, we traveled through the three worlds of this small country: The Andes, The Amazon, and The Galapagos Islands.  We saw completely different landscapes, wildlife, and cultures; all very accessible from Quito. We explored the Amazon rainforest, hiked and biked the high Andes, and snorkeled and kayaked in the Galapagos Islands.  Amazing food, people, and incredible diversity!

Bushmen of Botswana

September 2019

One of our partners, author Bonnie Fladung, hosted this culture and wildlife safari to Botswana.  They visited a remote village of one of the oldest cultures on earth - the San Bushmen.  With bush walks and village interactions, our group learned about these fascinating people and how they survive in a hostile environment.  They then headed to the bush on a mobile camping safari to witness Botswana's wildlife.

Northern Tanzania & Pemba Island

January 2018

On this 10-day safari we witnessed the calving season of the great herds of wildebeest and zebra in the southern Serengeti.  We visited some remote, excellent camps in the vast Serengeti plains.  Culture is never far away and we spent time with the last Hadza bushmen on a morning bush walk and saw the blacksmith skills of the Datoga. We finished with a few days on Pemba Island in the Indian Ocean snorkeling, boating, and relaxing on the beach.

Southern Tanzania & Zanzibar

September 2018

Walking Safari along the Great Ruaha River

We enjoy exploring remote areas and on this safari we experienced the seldom visited parks in southern Tanzania.  Starting in Dar es Salaam, we explored the huge Selous Reserve and camped and walked in the wonderful Ruaha National Park.  We also hiked to a waterfall through the rainforests of Udzungwa Mountains, an oasis rising out of the dry plains. Our trip ended with a stay in Zanzibar, a fascinating island full of Swahili culture, good food, and narrow alleyways.

Uganda & Gorillas

November 2017

uganda mountain gorilla safari

Uganda is a highly diverse country where you can see Africa's great apes, classic wildlife, and verdant landscapes.  We journeyed across the equator, tracked chimps and mountain gorillas, and enjoyed game drives.  We also visited some rural farms and learned how the locals live with elephants and other dangerous wildlife.  Finally ended in Entebbe with a sunset cruise on Lake Victoria and a successful search for the rare Shoebill Stork.


June 2016

hiking sossusvlei

Namibia is an extraordinary country with vast desert landscapes, strange plants, and ancient cultures.  We visited the enormous sand dunes at Sossusvlei and searched for the small lizards and insects with amazing adaptations for desert life.  On the coast we kayaked with fur seals and enjoyed the quirky town of Swakopmund. We saw lots of wildlife in Etosha (including rhinos) and spent a morning with the Himba people learning about their way of life.
