We are so thrilled that the LA Times featured our Cajun Tours in their Travel Section. Author Ann Harnagel covers some of the amazing activities we offer on our 4 day “Ultimate Cajun Country Adventure”. Take a look at the article here!
We spent years scouting out activities that feature the best of Cajun Country. We take great pride in sharing the sights, sounds and flavors that make this region so special. The nature, culture and colorful personalities of Acadiana are on full display, and will send you home with memories of unforgettable experiences that you can only find with Gondwana Ecotours!
Friendly Local Guides
Our guides and teachers are born and raised here in Cajun Country, so they are the perfect folks to tell you about what life is like here. Chef David can tell you about growing up on his grandparents farm while he teaches you how to make specialties like jambalaya, etouffee and gumbo. Learn how the Guidry family got into organic pecan farming and meet their sheep and chickens. Hang in the music studio with the legendary Nathan Williams to hear about how he started off his career with Buckwheat Zydeco and has spent the last thirty years touring the world sharing this unique genre and raising his musical family.
We visit the most scenic locations in the area, including the incredible Lake Martin swamp, where migratory birds like Roseate Spoonbills and Woodstorks fly overhead and Ospreys, Owls and Eagles nest in the trees. Paddle the historic Bayou Teche waterway, where battles were fought and fur traders in the 1700’s sold their pelts. The Jungle Gardens at the Avery Island Tabasco Plantation are out of this world, filled with exotic flora and fauna that make for great photographs.
Ultimate Comfort and Convenience
The B&B’s where we stay are charming, quiet and provide all the luxury you need for a relaxing getaway. Whether you want to eat a homemade brunch in the sun room, relax with a book on the deck or paddle out on a private pond to go fishing, we have the perfect spot for you. Choose a historic colonial on the outskirts of Lafayette, or a serene lakefront property at the end of a country road. The hospitality is top notch, and you will wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the next adventure.
