The Story of the Honeyguide
Our periodic email newsletter is named after the Greater Honey Guide, a bird that has developed the remarkable habit of leading tribespeople to wild bees' nests, with the promise of honeycomb and grubs once the humans have opened the nest and taken the honey.

The complementary relationship shared by bird and human represents the newsletter's goal - to periodically lead readers to new and timely bits of information about East African wildlife, culture, and travel.

Remembering David Pluth


David on a breakIt is with deep regret that we announce the passing of a great talent and dear friend.  David Pluth worked around the world as a mountaineer, filmmaker and photographer.  Most of you have seen David's photography on our Another Land and Amias Project websites and in our company e-newsletters.  His signature photography style included a storybook aesthetic, vivid color and amazing blue skies.
David and Nichole working
Over the past 5 years, we worked closely with David in over 13 countries, sharing life, adventures, perspectives and goals. He was one of the last of the 'elegant explorers' and was equally apt with a compass as with a wine opener.  David was a National Geographic Image Collection photographer and his work can be found on the National Geographic images website,, as well as at
David is sorely missed every day by each of us at Another Land.

Less is more. Make it quickly understood to 'scanners' what it is about. Include text links. Make image linkable. On average, the image on the right is the max size of the image.

get involved in domestic issues, I decided to listen to the husbands. Yet, I explained that this was something that each husband needed to discuss with his wife, and that I will respect his wife's decision. The women continued on with the Amias Project, making fashion accessories and earning an income for their family. After a few months had passed, the husbands returned. This time they came to say 'thank you.' Each husband asked that we teach his wife to do more, and in true polygamous Barabaig fashion, the husbands brought their other wives for Amias Project training.
