Breaking Tiger Conservation News! India's Supreme Court has offically banned tourists in preserves for conservation reasons. Less than 3,000 tigers are believed to remain in the wild. While this is not good news for travelers, hopefully this will finally be the answer to preserving the small population for future generations. Click here to read the full article.

Congratulations WANT guest, Gunther Riehle, whose incredible image of a Harp Seal Pup, taken on our Harp Seal Expedition, February 2012, was chosen by Smithsonian.com as the Photo of the Day for today, September 10.

Guests are safe and sound here in Bamako, Mali, despite the military coup. Check our facebook page for more updates. As far as their tourism sector is concerned, its such a shame, because Mali is really an incredible place, with beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites and even more beautiful peoples.

How many beautiful images can one capture in a day in Mali... too many to count! Don't miss this trip for 2013!!!

Sanya R. just celebrated her 10th voyage with us! She made history by being the first WANT guest to complete 10 voyages, so it was not a question that our managing director had to greet her personally on her recent Pantanal Jaguar Safari and had to celebrate with her. Once again, we would like to thank Sanya for her incredible loyalty and wish her the very best health for the coming decades and many more successful expeditions to come.

Over a dozen jaguars sighted in the Pantanal! Once again, the Pantanal area of Brazil proved to be the very best wildlife safari destination in all of the Americas! Between our two groups traveling just 3 days apart, we have sighted the incredibly elusive Jaguar over a dozen times and got good photographs for everybody! But it is not all about the Jaguars, we have been entertained by a huge variety of unique mammals, birds and reptiles during the last 2 weeks. See the quick image collection below and be the first to reserve your space on the 2012 departure, which has just been opened for booking. Spaces go fast on this amazing trip, for the right reason, so be the first, make sure you do not miss this incredible wildlife safari in 2012.

In Madagascar, we had a breath-taking encounter with several Indri (the largest of the lemur species) calling to each other in the tree canopy over our heads until the sound reverberated through our bodies! We also came across several other lemur species, including elusive and notoriously shy species such as Bamboo Lemurs and Mouse Lemurs. The highlight by far though, was the troop of Verreaux Sifaka, or dancing Sifaka, gracefully leaping and pirouetting through the air, with infant Sifakas clinging to their mother's bellies. At the 'Island of Lemurs,' Black-and-White Ruffed, Golden Sifaka, and Red-Fronted Brown Lemurs played on our head and shoulders, which was a magical and intimate interaction that we all won't soon forget! Sign up for next year's amazing Madagascar adventure!

Our Alaska Wildlife Expedition has been completed with great success. We had a slightly rainy summer this year, but it did not stop us from taking thousands of images of Brown Bears fishing for salmon at Brooks Lodge, of glaciers calving off massive icebergs, of a Red Fox catching and burying a Ground Squirrel, and of a mother and a calf Humback Whale playfully jumping and breaching over a dozen times right in front of our vessel! And that is just the 'tip of the iceberg' of some of the exciting things we saw and experienced!
