Dear Travelers,

In August of 2018, biologist Michael Moore and I co-led a two-week Zegrahm wildlife adventure in Borneo, spotting wild orangutans in Danum Valley's dense forest, pygmy elephants among the tall reeds along the Kinabatangan River, and the parasitic Rafflesia 'corpse flower' high on the slopes of Mount Kinabalu.  

In August of 2020, we will set off again to explore the natural wonders of terrestrial ...

I’ve been a nature-lover my whole life, but I began traveling specifically to see animals in the wild back in the early ’90s. Still in my early 20s then, I was fascinated by watching wildlife. My passion grew exponentially as I took up photography and became more adept at spotting hidden animals.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve been blessed to explore over 40 countries on six continents. The one thing most of the places I’ve visited have in common? An opportunity to...

The Antarctic Circle is one of the most isolated and remote destinations in the world. So naturally, it’s many a traveler’s dream to explore the vast white wilderness of the Antarctic islands. This is Earth’s final frontier—a pristine continent of elemental forces. Less than a century ago, only a handful of humans had experienced its dynamic environment of ice, snow, rock, and water.

Nowadays, cruises to the Antarctic islands generally depart from South America,...

Total solar eclipses like this occur approximately once every 18 months, but they’re usually only visible from less than half a percent of the Earth’s surface. This will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since 1979.

Despite the brevity of this phenomenon, its rarity makes it an experience stargazers do not want to miss....

Each evening between May and October, colorful pyrotechnics illuminate the skies over Lake Toya, as hundreds of fireworks are set off from boats on the still waters. The spectacular event attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually to the scenic lake, which lends its name to the surrounding Shikotsu-Toya National Park on Japan’s northernmost main island, Hokkaido.

Japan is a timeless travel destination, blending ancient cultural traditions with a love of forward-thinking technology. You would be forgiven for thinking that the nation is one big landmass, but it’s actually a volcanic archipelago made up of 6,852 Japanese islands. Of these, only 420 are inhabited.
