Everest Base Camp Trek

 Imagine flying over the highest of the Himalayas and landing in Lhasa - the heart and soul of Tibet! Here you will pray with the pilgrims before the holy Jokhang Temple, explore the Potala and the Norbulinkha, watch the monks debating at Sera and visit the Museum of Tibetan Culture. Heading out, you will see the magnificent paintings of Gyantse's Kumbum and walk the pilgrim kora in Shigatse. Then the trek begins - a five-day trek to Everest Base Camp over 17,000' Lamna La, past Zommug (the highest permanent settlement in the Everest region) and down to Dza Rongphu Monastery beside Everest Base Camp. Here you can spend time wandering up to the glacier and visiting the very special holy sites of the area. Your trip ends with a spectacular descent from the Tibetan Plateau down into the Kathmandu Valley. If you have dreamed of seeing Everest and Base Camp, this trip is for you!

Botswana Green Season Safari
Wildland Adventures

Botswana Green Season Safari

Save $1,350 per person from comparable Botswana itineraries with green-season rates! 

The summer green season is a very special time to go on safari in Botswana at a very special price. The landscape is a vibrant green canvas with a kaleidoscope of floral colors, spectacular bird life, and a plethora of new life when many species bear their young. As a result, predator sightings increase because lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs take advantage of abundant inexperienced prey. Calm days and dramatic skies with beautiful light are complimented by comfortable temperatures and fewer travelers creating good conditions for photographic safaris in Botswana. Accommodations are spacious luxury tents with en-suite bath set in small wilderness camps with top-rated resident wildlife guides. Explore the varied landscapes of the Kalahari Desert, green with spring rains, the Okavango Delta, and the lush grasslands and Mopane woodlands of the Linyanti region, known for its high concentrations of elephants. Conclude your Botswana safari on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River near Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
