I may be going back to Uruguay in November in which i can take multiple people.
I may go to Malawi, and we may have a spot open.
I also got invited to go to the Amazon with Heiko Bleher in which case there would not be any open slots.

Im leaning towards the Amazon simply for the opportunity to learn from Heiko out in the field, he is a great guy to talk to, as are my other friends in Malawi and Uruguay.
PM me if you are thinking about Malawi or Uruguay, otherwise, more pix will follow.

Going back to South America Dec. 2.
Flights from LAX are running about 900, id guess from Miami they would be a bit cheaper.
Lodging/Gas/Food will run about 1500.

If you collect the right fish, you can pay for your trip with fish sales.
let me know if you want to go collect some cool cichlids, plecos, cories and tetras that don't need heaters.

just noticed i have not put up any pictures from my last trip!
ill try to do it tonight.

anyway, this is an update for trips for the remaining year 2012.

I will be returning to South America in early december for anyone who wishes to come along.
you can bring back fish. pick the right fish and it will pay for your trip.
cost is roughly 1500-2000 for lodging, permits.
airfare out of LAX is about 800-1200.
bring back ten pikes, and ten Hoplias and that should pay for your trip!!!

Africa....
I will either be going to just Malawi end of September....both Tanganyika (after a week in Malawi),...or just Tanganyika.

Malawi runs about 1800 for diving, lodging for about 8 days. Plus about 2200 air out of LAX.
Tanganyika runs about 1600 for 7 days lodging, dives, etc. Plus about 1800 for air.
If we camp/tent in Tanganyika (instead of the chalet's) i can get the lodging cost down to 1000, which means for about $3000 you can do Tanganyika for a week.

A combined three week trek in Tanganyika and Malawi will run about 6500.

You won't be able to bring fish back from Africa, but you can do something that few others will.

Africa is more of a SCUBA/Photography type trip.
South America is more of a rugged/river fishing/ cichlid and catfish collecting type trip.

Madagascar has been put off till 2014.

Let me know if you are interested in any of these two trips.
