It seems just about everyone is getting their genetic makeup tested these days. Yet in the search to find our DNA ancestry, we often overlook our closest living relatives—the Great Apes.

Fact is, humans share nearly 99 percent of our genes with fellow Hominidae—gorilla, chimpanzee, bonobo, and orangutan. Sadly, all four of these magnificent creatures currently face numerous threats of extinction. Our upcoming ...

Blog Post

Because of the remoteness of our overland adventures, we don’t always hear from our field leaders until a trip is almost concluded. So we eagerly await news and are always excited to hear the details. Since so many land expeditions are happening at this time of year, we thought we’d share some of the enthusiasm expressed by our leaders via phone calls and quick emails to our office... Makes us all wish we were there!

Ultimate Namibia
July 20, 2004
Blog Post

I first visited Namibia in the early 1980s when I was working aboard a ship that called at Walvis Bay. The dramatic coastline, the bordering sand dunes, and an enormous, seabird-packed lagoon immediately signaled Namibia's potential as an adventure-travel destination.

My interest only grew during the intervening years as I explored the country further. Namibia, I became convinced, is one of southern Africa's best-kept secrets. Since 2000 we've included Namibia as an extension to...

For those of you who have traveled with me before, I sincerely hope that you enjoyed seeing our little bit of Africa at a very different time of year—the Mombo and DumaTau brought back some happy memories and, of course, created new ones. The lush landscapes, the flowers, the beautiful cumulonimbus clouds contributing to some stunning sunsets, and the baby animals were all differences from a trip in the dry season.

This trip wasn’t purely a natural history trip and...

Our Eco-Expedition, Back to Africa with Lex Hes ended on March 9th and we are excited to share some highlights of the trip.

One of the greatest things about this trip was the enormous diversity we encountered as we moved from the low rainfall areas of the desert through to the high rainfall areas in the east. Starting off with Rhino Camp, our sights and sounds included: oryx, springbok, Ruppell’s korhaan, Namaqua sandgrouse, the long drawn-out whistle of the Benguella longbilled lark...
