Kruger National Park, the massive, 7,332-square-mile reserve in northeastern South Africa, is home to 517 species of birds and 147 species of mammals, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and the rhino). The best part? Don’t expect Kruger to be some sort of South Africa-Disneyland: “Kruger is not a glorified tourist trap, but […]

Summiting Kilimanjaro, And It’s Only Friday Morning

Friday, April 3, 2009

Kilimanjaro may not be the challenge that is Everest or K2 (or reading Finnegan’s Wake), but I’ve read Into Thin Air, and I assure you, if I’m going to hike any continent’s highest mountain peak, I’m going to choose the one where I can wear shorts and a t-shirt throughout most of the trek. But, […]

“Hunting” For Lions In The Botswana Bush

Sunday, March 8, 2009

On safari in the Botswana bush in search of the elusive lion.

Go Ahead And Splurge A Bit, You’re In Ha Long Bay

Monday, January 12, 2009

By Kyle Long Within the first five minutes of exiting the airport I got a pretty good sense of what I was going to find in Vietman. Arriving here can be a bit of a shock at first, especially if you’ve just spent the last week relaxing in some of the country’s more laid-back neighbors, […]

Cook Islands: Easier Than You Think (And More Beautiful)

Thursday, December 4, 2008

The Cook Islands may only be 15 small islands, but they stretch across an area of the South Pacific the size of India, and with about 100,000 visitors a year, you’d think they’d be a little more, well, touristy. But think again. Though historically friendly to outsiders (maybe a little too much) these islanders cling […]

It’s not really hyperbole to say that Cartagena is one of the world’s most beautiful cities. What a great place to end the trip. I’ve gone from the breezy, mountainous climate of Bogatá, through the valleys of Medellin, and finally to the balmy Caribbean coast. It’s hard to believe it’s possible to experience so much […]
