Ghana, Togo and Benin; possibly the most dynamic and unvisited destinations on Earth! We loved our visit there and couldn't get enough of the people and places. Want to hear about it from a WANT guest? In the words of R. Dee: "I want to take a moment and thank you for a really interesting Voodoo Nations trip to Ghana, Togo and Benin. It was exactly as "advertised" and provided just the perfect out-of-the-ordinary experience for which I was looking. The advantage of traveling with WANT is that it was personalized --a small group and off the beaten path. It was an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the local culture. Our local guide in Benin seemed to know everyone and smoothed the way into our participation in ceremonies and a close look at village life. We were welcomed at every turn. Tourism in this area is relatively new, which is both an advantage and disadvantage. While some of the infrastructure was primitive (roads to villages), it was surprising that at the end of the day (literally) we were ensconced in a comfortable hotel with quality meals. There were inevitable glitches that come from traveling in lesser-known parts of the country. Jessica, our WANT guide, handled them with aplomb and humor. She treated us as guests. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Jessica was always on the lookout for a good photo opportunity, whether it be helping to haul fishing nets out of the Gulf of Guinea or learning where shea butter comes from. Our days were full. Clearly I enjoyed the experience. Such immersive travel in third-world countries is not for everyone, but it is what WANT promises and what I enjoyed most about traveling to West Africa -where very few other companies go. I look forward to traveling with WANT again as I know the trip will be unique and I will have lots of interesting, unusual stories to tell. ...I am pleased to provide positive feedback about the trip. Feel free to use me as a reference as well. You are welcome to provide my email address to anyone who has questions that I might be able to answer. As mentioned, I am very interested in the MSU Galapagos trip too.

Ghana report from the field. Here is what WANT guest, Lourdes M. had to say: "First full day in Africa. As always Jessica Pociask and WANT Expeditions deliver tons more than you expect. From helping the fishermen pull in the catch to joining amazing African dance troupe at the end ... Not to mention Mark having a beer with crocodile .... Even castle with it's dark history of slavery was an experience.... Reminded me of how I felt at Auschwitz." And its only day two!

NEWS FROM MIDWAY! Following the tsunami in Japan, we received the following report that the Short-tailed albatross nest on Midway Atoll was washed over a second time, but the chick was found unharmed about 35 m away and carried back to its nest cup.

We had some indescribable interactions with Gray Whales just a week ago! There are no words that could explain what it feels like when a 35 ton giant decides to hover under your small boat, and then slowly maneuvers into position, so that it can emerge and lift its head out of the water, so gently that it does not touch the boat but it is close enough for you to reach out and rub his nose! No words can describe the feeling when the same 35 tons slowly submerge and blow a gigantic air bubble, just to entertain you and say 'hello', as well as make a perfectly co-ordinated flip with the tail, so that water splashes all over into the boat but again, he does not touch the boat or threaten anyone. This interaction between two species, at their own will, can only be experienced in the field, words can not describe, images can not show. Join us on our next Baja California Wildlife Safari in January, 2012!

Our 'Yellowstone Wildlife Safari' is completed with incredible success! Bison, elk, mule deer, coyote, moose, wolves, river otters, pronghorn antelopes, bald eagle were just a few of the fantastic species we have seen up close and what provided excellent photographic subjects in the pristine white snowy landscape. This trip is a must for all nature lovers! Don't wait, click here to sign up for this trip in 2012.

Our 'Big Five of India' safari is confirmed and less than half of the spaces remain. According to WWF, we have lost over 97% of our world's tiger population in less than 100 years, and tigers could be extinct in the wild in ten years time. Don't miss this opportunity! Not only may this be your last chance to see a tiger in the wild, but your visit in India will help to reinforce the need to create projects and set aside funds to protect wild tigers for future generations. Don't wait, click here to sign up for this trip and help save the wild Tiger from extinction.
