USA - The Grand Canyon, Bryce & Zion
The Wayfarers

USA - The Grand Canyon, Bryce & Zion

 

The sheer immensity of the canyons and the vistas of mountains, forests, cliffs and lakes are awe-inspiring. Here, the West has always been Wild - famous outlaws Butch Cassidy and Billy the Kid once rode the range.

Carved by eons of wind, water and geological upheaval, the rocks, spires and pinnacles of Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyons cast a spell of magical light, brilliant color and deep shadows.

We catch the dawn sunrise in Bryce Canyon; hike up to Watchman Trail to admire the expanse of Zion Canyon and lunch at the old Western movie town of Kanab.

This active Panama family tour is designed for families with kids of all ages at a pace that is easy and flexible for a wide range of interests and abilities. With our local and private native guides by your side, explore the protected rainforests during a Panama Canal tour – cruise by boat, keeping a look out for green iguanas resting in branches and howler moneys swinging from the trees, and then stop for lunch at the 5 star restaurant of the Visitor Center with amazing views of the locks. As your family travels through Panama, you’ll get authentic interactions with the people of Panama –such as when you visit the EmberaDrua village for a native-style lunch of fresh fried fish and plantains or when you drop by an indigenous community in Bocas Del Toro to talk with the talented native artists who sell beautiful handicrafts, such as painted woodcarvings and Ngobe handbags (optional visit). And, along the way, there’s plenty of opportunity for family adventure: challenge dad to zipline through highland cloud forests and to wild waterfalls, feel the rush as you plunge through exciting rapids, learn the secrets behind chocolate making, head off to snorkel and kayak the warm and clear Caribbean waters while visiting remote islets to discover rare birds, such as the brown booby or red-billed tropic birds and amble among the cobblestone streets of Casco Viejo.  Relax in comfortable, locally-owned, family-friendly hotels and eco-lodges as your home base for each day’s activities to enjoy relaxed family time together in the tropics of Panama.

Wild Western Tanzania Safari
Wildland Adventures

Wild Western Tanzania Safari

For the more intrepid traveler, consider our Western Tanzania Safari which combines stunning wildlife reserves in the more remote regions of Tanzania. Begin at Lamai Serengeti, located in the Northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park where wildebeest can often be seen braving the waters of the Mara River during the migration (July –October). The northern location of this camp ensures seclusion and non-migrating predators are present throughout the year. A short flight from the plains of the Serengeti brings you to Katavi National Park, a large remote wilderness area visited by only 1000 lucky souls each year. Herds of over 1000 buffalo are known to congregate here, and hippos pack the shallow pools, each fighting for territory. You’ll have the opportunity to get your boots on the ground as expert guides navigate the expansive flood plains in search of wildlife. Continue your foray into the African bush in Mahale Mountains National Park, perhaps the best place in the world for chimpanzee trekking. Hike through the forests to spend an hour each day with our closest biological relatives and swim and fish in the crystal waters of Lake Tanganyika, the 2nd largest freshwater lake in the world. Our Western Tanzania Safari utilizes the finest quality small camps and bush lodges, each located in prime areas and attended by top notch guides and staff in order to achieve a truly unique and memorable Tanzania safari experience.
