Welcome to Independent Nature Travel – Travel tales from a family of 3 (soon to be 4).

Greetings! We are Ryne, Jenny and Cypress Rutherford, and we are a family who loves adventure, travel and nature. We seek out wild, pristine places with lots of wildlife and support sustainable eco-travel by putting our dollars into small communities and expert local guides. We hope to inspire people to nature travel and raise awareness on the importance of eco-travel. Tourist dollars give local people an incentive to preserve and protect the natural places around them. Once they realize that tourists will pay to see pristine ecosystems, perhaps they will stop destroying the beauty around them and help to conserve it.
