We would like to express Rewilding Europe’s special gratitude to Wildlife Worldwide, the provider of the Grand Prize in this draw, and lots of gratitude also to the other two tour companies – Wildlife Adventures and Brittany Wildlife Tours for kindly donating these fantastic wilderness and nature trips to our Travel Club and its membership.
Now, all Travel Club members who haven’t been that lucky this time, please look here!
You can still go on a bison trip to Romania, but at your own expense. Please book it at http://rewildingeurope.com/rewilding-bison-in-the-tarcu-mountains-reserve/. The same goes for two trips to the Rewilding Apennines.
“The Tarcu Mountains are truly unique. Nowhere in Europe you can see bison, so close by, showing their natural behavior in such a fantastic scenery. Local guides can take you to the bison, and ancient forests, and tell you about the customs, traditions and the history of this region and show the local plants and animals, and let you enjoy traditional local food. You will come home with unique photos, and not only of the bison, to show your friends. There is one more important reason to come to the Tarcu Mountains. Your visit will contribute to help the conservation of this beautiful area, the local traditions and the BISON”, says Joep van de Vlasakker, Wildlife Advisor at Rewilding Europe and one of the main persons in the bison reintroduction in the Southern Carpathians.
“If you are a wilderness enthusiast who is also keen on culture, and has a soft spot for great food, the Central Apennines are the right place for you. You can reach this amazing region with less than 1.5 hours drive from Rome or Naples. Come to visit the “Wild Heart of Italy” with its unique mix of stunning sceneries, high biodiversity, ancient history and legendary hospitality!”, says Bruno D`Amicis, Communications Officer in the Central Apennines rewilding area.
