OUR CORE VALUES BREATHE ADVENTURE

LIVE WITH PASSION

OPEN YOUR MIND

PAY IT FORWARD

Life begins at YES! Open yourself up to new adventures and opportunities! Embrace spontaneity and find the courage to try new things, take the road less travelled, and jump head-first into the unknown and the unforgettable experiences that lie ahead. Get the most out of life by embodying the true traveller’s spirit of curiosity and excitement. Get lost in new places, meet incredible people, and challenge yourself to gain different perspectives. With an open heart and mind, anything is possible!

MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY

Everyone needs a little love in their life! Endeavour to bring happiness and joy to others, in whatever way you can. Bring a smile to someone’s face, lend a listening ear, be patient, go beyond what is expected and always make time for a friend in need.

bambaexperience.com

We live for adventure and travel, and that passion flows into everything we do here at Bamba. If you always give your best effort and find joy in even the smallest things, you can stand proud when you look back on a life of passion, drive and excitement. We are all in this together and have an equal share in the responsibility to look after our beautiful planet and our communities. The smallest action can make a big wave, so always strive to make the world better for yourself and others.

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Create and innovate! Seek ways to constantly better yourself, your environment, and your community, and never settle for less than the best. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind, take risks, and evaluate new options! To live outside the box is to be brave, bold, and brilliant.


SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

BAMBA

As citizens of the world, we all share the responsibility to protect our beautiful planet. Now, more than ever, we need to reduce our impact while learning from and educating others to do the same. Our strong commitment to support the communities we visit and their local economies is reflected in our products and partners.

ANIMAL WELFARE

Part of this great responsibility is standing up for animal welfare. That’s why we have vowed to end the cruelty of animals in tourism in partnerships with World Animal Protection, Too Rare To Wear and See The Wild. We have also banned any cruel activity from our tours, like elephant riding, shows using animals as entertainment, and direct interactions with wild animals.

Our Voluntours are designed to give you the opportunity to help others and make a difference in local communities. Although the trips can be short in duration, they have a huge impact in the lives of locals. Choose the place and program that fits your interests, and experience something that will give you a deeper understanding of the world in which we live.

TRIP STYLES

GROUP

ADVENTURES Our group adventures are the best fit for those wanting to travel with like-minded people, go to amazing places, and embark on the ultimate trip together. The choice is yours between travelling for a short or long duration, focusing on the highlights, going off-thebeaten path or even doing both!

Get ready for a completely new kind of small group adventure with Bamba! Cover the highlights while also going deeper into new and undiscovered places that typical tourists don’t get to see. Heaps of unique and fun experiences are included and our happiness leaders will always be ready with helpful tips and recommendations, so you don’t need to worry about a thing!

TAILOR MADE

TRIPS 8

bambaexperience.com

Get to know a new place and explore its highlights on a short but sweet trip of 9 days or less, packed with excitement and experiences to keep you satisfied. If you don’t have a lot of time for your travels, or want to mix-and-match short tours while having an unforgettable and fulfilling experience with other like-minded travellers, our mini adventures are for you!

For the traveller who has plenty of time to truly explore their newest destination, our classic adventures of 10 days or more will be the right fit. Get lost in the journey, go beyond the highlights, and make tons of new friends on the road! With the same guide and group throughout the majority of the trip, you will have time to get comfortable and bond with everyone.


INDEPENDENT

ADVENTURES Our independent adventures are the perfect choice for those who want to travel solo or with their own travel partner(s) while being open to meet people along the way and having free time to wander. Choose from a fixed self-guided itinerary, a flexible travel pass, or a private tour.

Enjoy the independence of navigating on your own, the liberty of having free time to explore at your own pace, and the security of a fixed itinerary with pre-booked experiences, transport and accommodation! Choose from hostels, 3* and 4* hotels depending on your budget, and learn from knowledgeable local guides during each activity.

Our private tours are a great option for maximum peace of mind with everything pre-booked and guided. Our itineraries offer an intimate experience with a private and knowledgeable guide to cater to you or your group in remote and rarely-touristed places. Enjoy included experiences, accommodation, food and private transport for most of your trip.

CUSTOMISE YOUR

DREAM TRIP

This option is for those who don’t want to compromise. Sometimes, to get exactly what you’ve always dreamed of, you need a trip to be completely unique to you and your group - luckily we have just the solution for you! We can help you to create an itinerary from scratch or modify one of our many options. Thanks to our large network of local partners, our expert team is specialised in personalising itineraries with customised experiences, lodging and transport options, depending on your preferred travel style, duration, budget and interests.

SAFE & RELIABLE

TRANSPORTATION True travel is not just about the destination, it’s about the journey. That’s why we hand-pick our transport to be as comfy and interesting as possible! Check out our most common modes of transport… “The travel, particularly partners used in Vietnam and Cambodia is of an excellent standard - night buses have never been so comfortable!” - Jack B

BUS

SHUTTLE/VAN

FERRY

If you are travelling on a Hop-on Hop-off or Self-Guided itinerary, most of your transport will be by public bus. Travel as the locals do in comfortable coaches for day transfers and overnight rides.

Enjoy a more intimate type of transport with smaller shuttles/vans. For small group tours, you will often travel in a private van, whereas on independent trips you will share the van with other passengers.

For some itineraries, you may travel on ferries or boats, whether it is a shared service to your next destination, or the mode of transport of a tour, like cruising on jungle rivers or sailing to pristine islands.

4X4 JEEP For some off-the-beaten path adventures, an exciting ride in a 4x4 jeep will be included. Explore remote places like the otherworldly Uyuni landscapes or go on safaris in these all-terrain jeeps.

TRAIN

Travelling by train is a great way to get from A to B, see beautiful landscapes, and kick back and relax in comfort. Trains are the primary transport in our Japan and Siberia tours, among other destinations.

PLANE

For those with a more flexible budget, our self-guided Air-Expeditions can replace long bus journeys with more convenient flights. Get to out-of-the-way destinations in a blink! Note: Plane tickets from/to your home country are not included in any of our packages.

ACCOMMODATION

FOR EVERY OCCASION All Bamba adventures include hand-picked accommodations (except Hop-on Hop-off.) For some packages you can choose your own lodging based on what suits your budget and interests, while others already have great accommodations selected for you. Check out some of our classic options!

HOSTELS

One of the most affordable and popular options, hostels can be enjoyed by people of all ages! Choose from shared dorms or private rooms, and enjoy a young and energetic environment with lots of opportunities to meet other travellers! “The Milhouse hostel was one the best hostels I have stayed at :) Great atmosphere, lovely courtyard and a nice bar area.”

HOTELS

The most classic option for accommodation while travelling, hotels are a great option for a more comfortable stay. Prices can vary widely depending on where you are travelling, and hotels can range from 2 to 5 stars, so you can choose how luxurious you want your travel to be! “The three star hotels were clean and safe with an excellent quality of service.”

LODGES &

SPECIALTY LODGING

Lodges and other specialty accommodations offer a unique, authentic, and comfortable stay. Sleep to the sounds of the jungle in an Amazon Eco-Lodge, stay inside pristine game reserves on safaris, at a Buddhist temple in Japan, and more! “We stayed at a brilliant Puerto Maldonado Eco-lodge with strong ethics. The cabins were clean and comfortable. The food was amazing.”

- Rebecca

CAMPING

Camping is the cheapest option for overnight and also a great way to get in touch with nature while travelling in national parks or in the wilderness. Camp out in the Andes Mountains on your way to Machu Picchu, by the beach in Palawan, or in the wild on safaris. “I am not a great camper but it was one of the best things I have ever done.”

HOMESTAYS Staying in family homes is an incredible way to experience a day in the life of locals. Immerse yourself in the local culture, taste traditional meals, connect with the local people, and learn about their unique traditions and way of life. “The casas in Cuba they had picked for us were great, with wonderful welcoming hosts.” - Silvie Read the full review: http://bamba.me/homestays

It misses the devastating effects of the typhoons that frequently hit neighbouring Philippines. Being an equatorial country, Sabah experiences year-round summer of 22-33°C for most areas, with Kinabalu Park being the exception, with temperatures dropping to as low as 2°C up on the mountain.

 BEST TIME TO GO The Philippines is most popular during its dry season, between November and April. During this time the country’s beautiful islands and more remote areas are fully accessible to tourists. Temperatures are high during March and April, so it’s best to travel during the cooler months of December to February. The dry season is understandably the busiest though, so it may be worth considering the shoulder months of May and November, when the crowds thin out but you can still enjoy the good weather.
