Equitrekking host Darley Newman travels to Alberta, Canada to experience Western adventure and stunning natural scenery. In Kananaskis, Darley treks amid the beautiful snow-capped Canadian Rockies with a longtime Alberta cowboy, conquering high altitudes and an August hailstorm. Next, Darley experiences the fast-paced Calgary Stampede with its equestrian competitions, Western art, rodeos and surprisingly diverse food offerings. North of Calgary, viewers ride along on a multi-day pack trip into Banff National Park, Canada’s oldest national park, passing glacial-fed lakes through rushing mountain streams and forested trails that open up to reveal dramatic, tall mountain peaks. Darley camps in the wilderness, discovering what it takes to live in the primitive backcountry, and sleep out under the stars. At Homeplace Ranch, a historic ranch in the foothills outside of Calgary, Darley meets local Mac MaKenny who shares the ranch’s intimate history during a ride through tall Aspen trees to an outdoor ranch BBQ.

The 2010 World Cup put South Africa on the map for travelers in a major way, and a South Africa safari is a wonderful way to visit the country. The opportunity to see lions, giraffes, elephants, and dozens of other animals close up in their natural habitat is a special experience. “Going on safari,” Rudy Maxa says, “always reminds me where I rank in the food chain. And it removes a traveler completely from his or her everyday world.” This brilliantly shot episode by award-winning wildlife photographer Joe Pontecorvo brings the excitement of the wild into the homes of viewers.
