WHAT DOES NOMAD DO?

Dear Fellow Nomad’s As we head towards the second half of 2018 I am pleased to report that Nomad continues to go from strength to strength. As such we are very excited to present our 2019 tours in this, our latest brochure. Our small group comfort tours have been so well received that we have added two new routes for 2019: a Victoria Falls to Cape Town and a Mozambique tour. Our upgraded and expanded Dive tours have been a hit as well and have also resulted in an expanded product offering that now includes Zanzibar, Mafia island and Mozambique. Our Groups and F I T department has grown as well. If you can dream it, we can make it happen! As I write this I am over the moon to be able to say that our client feed back is at an all-time high which means there has never been a better time to travel with Nomad. Whether you are taking the plunge for the first time or returning once again, you have our solemn commitment to ensuring that your visit to Africa blows your mind and feeds your soul. See you on the road.. Alex Rutherford Founder and Managing Director of Nomad Adventure Tours

HOW DO ADVENTURE TOURS WORK?

If you dream of having an authentic African adventure, a Nomad tour is one of the best ways to achieve it. We organise and plan everything for you, leaving you free to relax and really enjoy your African experience.

Travelling with Nomad means friendship, fun and adventure plus the security that group travel brings. Our unrivalled experience in Africa also ensures your holiday is well planned to make the most of our spectacular continent. All Nomad adventures are ‘off the beaten track’ and the emphasis is on the journey, as well as the destination. Unexpected events are part of the package and often add to your real-Africa experience.

Small Group Adventure Tours Nomad is proud to be the only adventure tour operator to offer a “business class” option to our already well established and trusted variety of accommodated tours. Read more about our Small Group Adventure Tours on page 6.

TOURS AND SAFARIS Camping or Accommodated – What’s the difference? Our accommodated tours fill the gap between a camping experience and an expensive lodge tour while our camping tours allow you to have a truly African experience. On all of our tours excluding the Cape Town to Victoria Falls (and sections) we have both camping and accommodated guests travelling together. All meals are prepared at the truck, you have the same guides and the travel times are all the same so that literally is the only decision that you have to make – a bed or a tent. Camping gives you the freedom to build your own home every evening. We provide you with heavy duty canvas dome tents which are standing height (unless you’re over 6 foot) and approximately 2.5 x 2.5m across the base. On a camping tour, you need to provide your own pillow, sleeping bag and towel. The tents are easy to put up and have flexible self-supporting poles and there are no unnecessary pegs to fight with. There is a fly-sheet provided for rainy weather and a built-in mosquito net. We also provide everyone with a sleeping mattress. On accommodated tours, you can expect 2 – 3 star twin / double accommodation and the majority of it is en-suite. In some places, we also make use of permanent safari tents

Our experience and expertise throughout Africa allows us to be able to create unique group tours for any number of travellers. We regularly do this for both private individuals and companies. For these tours we offer a range of transport options from our standard adventure trucks, to minivans, 4x4’s and even trains and planes. From 2 to 5 star, we do it all. Examples of what we can do and more information is provided on page 8.

Usually every few days, we will spend a couple of nights at one venue to break the travel routine. Distances between highlights are often on a bigger scale than those at home, particularly in East Africa. Often there is absolutely nothing between focal points except vast open deserts. Most tours average approximately 450 km per day however there can be stretches of up to 600km in a single day and that’s a long way in a truck, so be prepared!

OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES

Whatever the weather.. We make it happen!

Our guides do all the cooking. However, you are welcome to ask the guides if you are keen to share your culinary skills with the group. The more you get involved, the better the group experience, and not doing your dishes is not a great way to make friends. Although we do most of the work, a little assistance from the group can make a real difference as it means that the guides have more time to spend with the group.

We provide you with a great tour however there are always additional optional activities that you can do en-route. Please keep in mind that in the winter months, we lose five hours of daylight, so it may happen that not all optional activities are available during these months. Also, if there are circumstances that mean we arrive late at camp, an optional activity may not be available. The reason these activities are optional is because they cannot be guaranteed.

SMALL GROUP TOURS

DIVE TOURS

Nomad is proud to be the only adventure tour operator to offer a “business class” option to our already well established and trusted variety of accommodated tours. We have been successfully running our small group departures for the past 6 years and 2019 sees additional tours being added to the small group schedule.

Our Small Group Adventure Tours are more than just the extra space and we believe that comfort and uniqueness contribute to any successful journey. Nomad’s Small Group Adventure Tours close the gap between large group travel and doing it on your own, offering you fixed itineraries, value for money and most important transport in our, custom built 4x4 adventure trucks - limited to 12 guests per departure.

You can now book your African Dive Adventure with Nomad Dive Tours and experience some of the best and most diversified diving the world has to offer.

What makes our Small Group Adventure Tours unique? Our existing Nomad fleet was expanded by the introduction of 5 specialized custom-built 4x4 vehicles. The design of the vehicles was conceptualised by our owner, Alex Rutherford and is used exclusively on our Small Group Adventure Tour routes. So what can you expect to receive when travelling on one of our Small Group Adventure Tours?

Small Groups

Drakensberg

South African Explorer On this 20-day Johannesburg to Cape Town journey you will enjoy a variety of adventures, kicking off with panoramic views of the Blyde River Canyon and God’s Window. For a safari to try your luck at spotting the Big 5 in Kruger National Park. Our journey then winds through the rolling emerald hills of Swaziland and up to the highlands of Lesotho before heading down to the coast and the Garden Route and ending in the beautiful Mother City, Cape Town.

Sharks The Southern African coastline is home to many species of sharks, being one of the only destinations where you can dive with multiple sharks in a single dive. During our 7-day Shark Tank tour, we will participate in 5 dives at Protea Banks - keep your eyes open for the likes of Tiger Sharks, Bull Sharks and Hammerheads. Aliwal Shoal, known for the congregation of Raggie Tooth Sharks in their hundreds and schooling Ocean Black Tips, affords us a further 3 recreational dives. Amongst other species we may be lucky to see Tiger Sharks and Giant Potato Groupers. These tours also offer additional baited dives for those wanting more.

Sardine Run

Sardine Run The Sardine Run takes place each year between the months of June and July - a phenomenon which you will find on the bucket list of many divers around the world. Our Sardine Run tours are operated from an exclusive area in Coffee Bay and include daily air support which sees planes going out each morning to track the sardine movement and radio back to the boat. This helps us with the sardine movement and the time frame of our dives. Apart from the sardine run, the waters around the southern coast of South Africa also play host to humpback whales, southern right whales, marlin, swordfish and dolphin and the incredible diving Cape Gannets – all wanting their piece of the action while the bait balls form.

Cape Town to Victoria Falls or Victoria Falls to Cape Town Our signature and most popular route, the accommodated Cape Town to Victoria Falls 20 day tour, highlights Southern Africa’s most incredible sights. From Cape Town all the way to the majestic Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Highlights include the Namib Desert, Swakopmund, Etosha National Park, Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park.

Okavango and Chobe Trail The 9 day tour begins in Victoria Falls before we head to Chobe National Park in Botswana. We enjoy a river cruise to watch elephants playing in and crossing the river only meters away. We then head to the Okavango Delta and enjoy a full day excursion on a mokoro gliding through this wilderness area. Not to be missed is our unique interaction with the San people to learn more about their fascinating survival in the Kalahari Desert.

Cape Town Fur Seal Dive

What we offer Our dive tours have been designed around 5 main attractions; Sharks, Sardine Run, Cape Town, Mafia Island and Mozambique. These form the core of each tour. Coupled with a Nomad Adventure Tour, we can offer you a range of options from 4 days up to 27 days including the likes of Kruger National Park, The Garden Route, Zanzibar and the Serengeti.

As we have been running tours through Southern Africa for the last 22 years, Nomad can assure you of a quality product that represents the best these areas have to offer and excellent value for money, a cornerstone of all Nomad products. On our Small Group Adventure Tours, selected departure dates are conducted in German with a German Guide. These dates can be identified in the dedicated Small Group Adventure Tours brochure with “GG” next to the date. In 2019, you will be able to book a Small Group Adventure Tour on the following routes; Namibian Explorer Starting and ending in Namibia’s capital city, Windhoek, we will spend the next 12-days exploring the highlights, dividing our time between Etosha National Park, the Namib Naukluft National Park and the Kalahari desert.

With Nomad Dive Tours, you can. Nomad’s Dive Tours have been created and are overseen by Fern Perry, with over 26 years of international dive experience, Fern is a PADI Master Instructor and TI Extended Range Instructor. South African born, Fern worked as a diving professional in multiple countries and owned her own dive centre in Indonesia, before returning to South Africa to focus on the diving that she loves best. This partnership has resulted in Nomad being able to provide guests with a truly once in a lifetime African dive safari. With several tour options available, ranging from a handful of days through to epic adventures, you are sure to find a tour that suits you.

Cape Town Shark Adventure Our 4-day Cape Town Bite Tour, which is suitable for both divers and non-divers, combines a visit to Robben Island, Table Mountain with the Cape Fur Seal & 7 Gilled Cow Shark dive and the Great White Shark cage diving. The 7 Gilled Cow Shark is the only shark left in the world with 7-gills and we will enjoy a full day excursion in search of these sharks. DAYS

You decide how long, where you want to go, the attractions you would like to visit and we will design your individual tour. No matter what the dream or desire, we’ll make it happen. Testimonials “We all agreed that the overland-truck concept was suited very well for a group of families like ours (with children approximately 10 and above) and is certainly something we would recommend to others. Very easy and convenient, better than driving all these long distances in separate cars on our own. Combination of camping and hotels were great (all good hotels). We hope we will be able to go in another journey in a few years!” -Thomas “We have just returned from a 13 day charter with Nomad tours to Botswana, Zimbabwe & South Africa. What can I say more than it was an absolutely amazing experience & as we had 8 family members with us - it was just us on the truck - aside of course from

Quite often past clients returned, years later, and did another tour, so we knew they had enjoyed the first one. Sometimes they sent us letters or postcards! Time has passed, we have always had feedback forms for clients, but once the trip is over most people are

busy moving on to whatever comes next... back to work, another country, a volunteer placement, back to studies, back to retirement! So this is a reminder to please share those pictures, thoughts and videos before you get back to the real world again. Our guides appreciate it, we appreciate it and our past, present and future travellers appreciate it. You will find Nomad on Tripadvisor, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, Flickr and several other forums. You probably looked Nomad up using one, or many, of these social networks before you travelled. All we ask is that when you have travelled with us that you please post some photos/video/thoughts with us and others. Mention our guides, they love getting feedback and let others know what to expect on a Nomad tour. If you have a blog, send it to us, we may ask to share it with our online network. We always prefer to use photos, feedback and video from our past travellers on our website. It is honest, authentic and gives our future travellers the best idea of what to expect. And, if you want to do things the old fashioned way, send us a postcard! The address is PO Box 2600, Somerset West, 7129, South Africa. We all look forward to hearing from you.

VEHICLES & EQUIPMENT

The trucks on tour are a major component of all adventure tours. These tours are road trips and incorporate long drives, bumpy roads and possible mechanical problems, also, digging your truck out of mud is sometimes considered a highlight. Nomad’s custom built adventure trucks are fully stocked before every tour, insuring the vehicle is ready for an epic adventure. Nomad vehicles are amongst some of the finest on the road, however do not forget the nature of an adventure tour, it is not a city to city coach liner trip and there is no air-conditioning or toilets on the truck. Chat to your fellow travellers, play cards and enjoy the journey, not just the destination. Using your time on the road wisely will make the hours tick by faster.

OUR WORKSHOP - THE BACKBONE OF NOMAD In Somerset West, just outside Cape Town, Nomad’s state of the art workshop and truck building facility is where all the action happens. From inception to beautifully designed and constructed, our trucks are created with passion and a lot of skill. This is also where our trucks are maintained and all are on a

Day 14 - Hluhluwe to Umfolozi Game Reserve - iSimangaliso Wetland Park We set out today for a game drive in the nearby Hluhulwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve, one of the last strongholds of the endangered rhinoceros. While rhinoceros are the most famous of the parks inhabitants, the park also provides a home to many other species, including the Big-5 that we all hope to see. Returning to our lodging for a siesta, we freshen up before our boat cruise on St Lucia estuary.

Day 1 - The Cape Whale Coast Route Made up of a collection of villages, farms, rivers, bays, coves and valleys, the Cape Whale Coast is a pristine stretch of the South African coastline. We have a full day ahead of us which takes us from the bustling city centre of Cape Town, via the vineyards, to the town of Hermanus - not forgetting a stop at the largest breeding colony of the African Penguin, Stony Point Nature Reserve. During the months of July to November, you may be lucky enough to see the Southern Right whales that visit the bay in Hermanus.

FEATURED HIGHLIGHTS

Day 15 - Swaziland An early start and we are off to the Kingdom of Swaziland, today we have the opportunity to join many of the optional activities that are offered here. Take your choice from game drives, mountain biking or a visit to the Chief’s village.

Day 2 - Route 62 - Oudtshoorn Crossing the Hottentots-Holland Mountains this morning we set out for the Klein Karoo and our overnight stop in Oudtshoorn. We follow the scenic Route 62 today, stopping to experience one of the many farm stalls on the way. One of the more quirky highlights today is Ronnie’s Sex Shop, not a sex shop at all, but a rather interesting country pub!

Day 16 - Swaziland Today our guide will lead us out on a nature walk to explore the “ Nature Trail “ which provides interpretation of historical and environmental information of the area. Later this morning, we embark on a 2-hour guided walk through the Esijeni community, allowing us a glimpse of life on a day-to-day basis. This interactive experience could involve grinding maize, building a wall or washing clothes in the steam. Endless hours of self-guided exploration within the small 4560ha Mlilwane sanctuary are also possible due to the relative absence of dangerous game.

Day 3 - Heart of Garden Route Today starts with a guided tour of the famous Cango Caves. We can only marvel at the astonishing formations that have formed in these impressive limestone caves. We make our way over the Outeniqua Mountains and descend to the beautiful Garden route coastline below. In the coming days we spend time hiking, relaxing at the beach and sampling the many optional activities available.

Cape Town

Day 17/18 - Panorama Route Setting off back to South Africa, we aim for the Kruger National Park and begin with our first game drive in the Nomad truck as we enter the gates. The Kruger National Park has more than it’s fair share of animals and with approximately 147 mammal species we will spend our time in search of both big and small. There will be an optional morning walk before we travel the short distance to the Panorama Route. Strung along the escarpment that divides the central plateau and low-lying bushveld of the Kruger, the sights of the Panorama route offer us a day of scenic delights

Day 4/5 - Tsitsikamma The Garden Route is a treasure trove of beautiful beaches, forest walks and an exciting menu of optional adventures. While there is time set aside for some relaxation on the beaches of Plettenberg Bay, there are a number of optional activities and your guide will assist you to make the most out of these two days. We also have the opportunity to visit the hidden gem of Nature’s Valley, this beautiful village offers us a chance to enjoy a hike or simply relax on the pristine beach in this little paradise. To make the most of your day, the truck will run a set schedule and you are free to join or leave at the places that interest you.

Day 19 - Kruger National Park Rising early we enter the Kruger National Park to enjoy a full-day of game viewing. Our activity package offers the added excitement of experiencing the park from an open-sided 4x4 vehicle.

This evening there is an opportunity for an optional Sundowner Drive.

Day 6/7 - Addo Elephant National Park On our way to Addo Elephant National Park, we stop in the surfing mecca of Jeffrey’s Bay, famous for its waves. You have the opportunity to visit the small surfing museum, catch a quick wave or simply enjoy a cup of coffee overlooking these famous waves. Over the next two days, we will enjoy two half day game drives in the park in search of the elephants after which the Addo National Park is named.

Day 20 - Johannesburg Our return journey sees us spending the morning in the Kruger National Park as we exit the park, heading directly towards Johannesburg. We arrive at Belvedere Estate in the late afternoon and all travellers are invited to join us for a traditional meal tonight. Many great tales are shared and tonight is for celebrating the many wonders of African travel.

Day 9/10 - Lesotho We venture across the vast expanse of the Great Karoo towards our next stop, Lesotho. This mountain Kingdom boasts the highest peaks in Southern Africa and is one of the highest countries in the world. The clean air of the mountains surrounds us as we explore on foot. Our hike concludes with a village visit and the opportunity to gain insight into the community that calls these mountains home. The Basotho are famous for their traditional hats, blankets and their sturdy ponies. Basotho ponies are renowned for their surefootedness in the mountains and you have the opportunity of an optional pony trek to experience this first-hand. Day 11 - uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park We exit Lesotho and travel through the sandstone cliffs of Golden Gate. Our destination is the mountains of the Drakensberg. Whether you go by the Zulu name uKhahlamba, meaning ‘barrier of spears’, or the Afrikaans name Drakensberge, meaning ‘dragon mountains’, these towering mountains are a hikers paradise and worthy of exploration.

Swazi Nation

Day 12 - UKhahlamba Drakensberg Park We set out this morning for a lengthy hike. Along our way we will have the opportunity to view examples of San Rock Art with a local guide.

Day 2 - Namaqualand - Gariep (Orange) River Namaqualand presents us with our first experience of the Desert vistas that will accompany us in the days ahead. We continue our journey north and after a short stop for supplies in Springbok, we travel to our camp on the banks of the Orange River. Day 3 - Gariep (Orange) River Beginning its journey in the mountains of Lesotho, the Orange River is the longest river in South Africa and offers a unique contrast to the desert landscapes along its banks. The best way to experience the river is on the water. This morning we have the opportunity to join an optional canoe trip on the river. Later we depart the Orange River and head inland, crossing the border into Namibia. We make a brief stop at the mineral hot springs for a dip in the pool before arriving at our camp.

“I’m so glad we took the tour rather than trying to take the trip ourselves - we got so much out of our short journey and experienced some amazing things. It was well worth the money and I’ve come away with unforgettable memories and made some great friends.”

Fish River Canyon

Day 4 - Fish River Canyon - Quiver Tree Forest - Giants Playground After packing up our camp, we make our way to the rim of the Fish River Canyon. After stretching our legs with a gentle walk along the rim, we turn west and head for Keetmanshoop. The rest of the day will be spent meandering through the Quiver Tree Forest and The Giants Playground – named for the way in which the massive dolerite boulders are moulded on each other - creating rock formations and a series of mazes.

We leave the Namib behind and after a stop to mark our crossing of the Tropic of Capricorn, we continue to the Atlantic coastline. We make a brief stop at Walvis Bay lagoon, where we hope to catch a glimpse of the flamingo’s that feed in the shallows. Although your tour comes to an end upon arrival in Swakopmund, you will have the opportunity to book some of the many adventures on offer, should you wish to extend your stay.

Day 2 - Namaqualand - Gariep (Orange) River Namaqualand presents us with our first experience of the Desert vistas that will accompany us in the days ahead. We continue our journey north and after a short stop for supplies in Springbok, we travel to our base on the banks of the Orange River.

Day 5 - Namib-Naukluft National Park Our destination is the dune fields that cover the western reaches of the desert. Long dusty roads and sparsely populated farmlands offer us an insight into the vastness of rural Namibia. From the grasslands in the east to the red dunes of the west, the slowly changing landscapes represents the many faces of this desert country. Tonight we listen to the unique calls of the elusive Barking Gecko.

“I decided to do this tour as a camping trip, and being a novice camper, I really enjoyed it! The tents were easy to set up and we were well-protected from the mosquitoes and rain. The people in the group were all very nice and everyone would help one another out in pitching tents/taking them down.”

Makgadikgadi Pans excursion Chobe NP boat cruise Chobe NP game drive

Day 1 - Windhoek - Ghanzi After meeting your guides, we travel east and make our way to neighbouring Botswana and the Kalahari Desert. The San people have long been associated with this harsh environment and tonight we enjoy a traditional evening that provides an insight into their culture of song, dance and story-telling. Day 2 - Maun Before departing Ghanzi we will enjoy an informative guided walk with the San community. After our walk, we head towards Maun, where upon arrival in Maun this afternoon, you will have the opportunity to go on an optional scenic flight over the Delta (time and weather permitting). Day 3 - Okavango Delta The most rewarding and enjoyable way to explore and experience the beauty and serenity of this intricate system of lily covered channels and lagoons, is by mokoro. Heading out early, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the poling station.

“The group was a great variety of nationalities (Swiss, German, Dutch, Australian, US, South Korean), this really worked out well. I really got to know all the people very well and everyone had the same great, adventurous attitude.”

Okavango Delta

Day 4 - Nata Leaving Maun behind (and re-uniting with those that chose the upgrade package) we make our way towards the town of Nata. We will spend most of the day in our truck as we journey across the northern reaches of the Makgadikgadi Pans. Our activity package will afford us the opportunity to enjoy a guided game drive to the Nata Sanctuary, which forms the breeding ground for a host of water birds including pelicans and flamingo in their thousands. Day 5 - Chobe National Park We continue north to our camp on the banks of the Chobe River. This afternoon is set aside for exploring the Chobe National Park. We begin our exploration in 4x4 vehicles, which allows us an up close and personal experience with the many elephants that frequent the river. The day ends with a leisurely boat cruise and a meal served around the campfire.

If you are fortunate enough to be travelling in the spring months (July to September) you may encounter the wild flowers that have made this region famous.

“The tents are great. Although they are said to be for two people we could easily fit all four inside one tent. If you are thinking of doing a trip - stop thinking and just book it. You won’t regret it.”

Day 3 - Gariep (Orange) River The best way to experience the Orange river is by getting out on the water and today we have the opportunity to join an optional canoe trip on the river. Later, we cross the border into Namibia. We make a brief stop at the mineral hot springs for a dip in the pool before arriving at our camp.

ACTIVITY PACKAGE

Makgadikgadi Pans excursion Chobe NP boat cruise Chobe NPgame drive

Day 1 - Swakopmund via Spitzkoppe - Brandberg We begin our tour today and set off for the massive granite formations of Spitzkoppe. The presence of rock art indicates their significance to the San people who lived here many years ago. We will enjoy a walk with a local guide and have the opportunity to view some examples of the San’s rock art before setting off for our overnight stop.

“I had a lot of really amazing experiences that I would not have had travelling on my own without Nomad. This was such a phenomenal experience.”

Day 3/4 - Etosha National Park We drive to the Etosha National Park. Etosha is the venue for some of the most unique game viewing experiences in Africa. We reach the park and begin with our first game drive as we make our way to the rest camp. Our second day in Etosha allows for a full day to continue our exploration of the park. No day on safari is ever the same and the suspense before that special sighting is the motivation that keeps our eyes wide open.

“I have to say that I truly enjoyed every minute of my African adventure, along with my fellow nomads and our trusty guides.”

Okavango Delta

Day 3/4 - Etosha National Park Rising early this morning we drive to the Etosha National Park. This afternoon we reach the park and begin with our first game drive as we make our way to the rest camp. Our second day in Etosha allows for a full day to continue our exploration of the park.

Day 6 - Ghanzi Today we travel east to neighbouring Botswana and the Kalahari Desert. The Kalahari is no less dramatic and covers over 900 000 square kilometres. The San people have long been associated with this harsh environment and tonight we enjoy a dance evening that provides an insight into their culture of song, dance and story-telling.

Day 11 - Victoria Falls We cross the border into Zimbabwe and travel the short distance to Victoria Falls. We will have the opportunity to visit the spectacular Victoria Falls at your leisure. While much of today is dedicated to viewing the mighty Zambezi River as it drops into the Batoka Gorge below, the bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline in the afternoon. For the more relaxed traveller there are craft markets and coffee shops on offer as well.

Day 7/8 - Okavango Delta Before departing Ghanzi we will enjoy an informative guided walk with the San community. After our walk, we head towards Maun, where upon arrival in Maun this afternoon, you will have the opportunity to go on an optional scenic flight over the Delta (time and weather permitting). Heading out early the next morning, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the poling station.

Day 9 - Nata Leaving Maun behind us this morning (and re-uniting with those that chose the upgrade package) we make our way towards the town of Nata. We will spend most of the day in our truck as we journey across the northern reaches of the Makgadikgadi Pans. Our activity package will afford us the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon guided game drive to the Nata Sanctuary, which forms the breeding ground for a host of water birds including pelicans and flamingo in their thousands. Day 10 - Chobe National Park We rise early this morning as we continue north to our camp on the banks of the Chobe River. This afternoon is set aside for exploring the Chobe National Park. We begin our exploration in 4x4 vehicles, which allows us an up close and personal experience with the many elephants that frequent the river in the afternoons. The afternoon ends with a leisurely boat cruise and a meal served around the campfire.

This tour starts in Cape Town, South Africa. If you want to start in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, have a look at page 46.

afternoon we reach the park and begin with our first game drive as we make our way to the rest camp. Day 12 - Etosha National Park Our second day in Etosha allows for a full day to continue our exploration of the park. No day on safari is ever the same and the suspense before that special sighting is the motivation that keeps our eyes wide open. We explore the edges of Etosha Pan in search of the abundant wildlife that occurs in the park.

Day 1 - Cape Town to Cederberg Region Leaving Cape Town this morning we look back at Table Mountain from across Table Bay. The Cederberg region not only boasts spectacular mountains and citrus farms, but it is also the home of the Rooibos tea and today we will visit a working Rooibos tea farm and see the plants of Rooibos and Buchu that occur naturally in the wild.

Day 13 - Windhoek It is an early rise as we take aim for Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia. Upon arrival in Windhoek, we will take a short walk through the city centre and have the opportunity to view some its better known landmarks.

Day 2 - Namaqualand - Gariep (Orange) River Namaqualand presents us with our first experience of the Desert vistas that will accompany us in the days ahead. We continue our journey north and after a short stop for supplies in Springbok, we travel to our camp on the banks of the Orange River. If you are fortunate enough to be travelling in the spring months (July to September) you may encounter the wild flowers that have made this region famous. No matter the time of year though, the strange desert vistas offer a unique backdrop to this day’s travel.

“The most surprising highlight, even though we are in the middle of nowhere in the desert, suddendly you can see an oasis... there are lot of trees, clean toilet and the bar with cold windhoek draught beer... heavan”

Day 14 - Botswana - Ghanzi Today we travel east and make our way to neighbouring Botswana and the Kalahari Desert. Starkly different to the Namib Desert after which Namibia is named, the Kalahari is no less dramatic and covers over 900 000 square kilometres. The San people have long been associated with this harsh environment and tonight we enjoy a dance evening that provides an insight into their culture of song, dance and story-telling.

Day 3 - Gariep (Orange) River While the Orange River was named after the Dutch Royal House, in recent times it has been referred to by its original name of Gariep, which simply means “river” in the indigenous KhoeKhoe language. The best way to experience the river is by getting out on the water and this morning we have the opportunity to join an optional canoe trip on the river. Around midday we depart the Orange River and head inland, crossing the border into Namibia. We make a brief stop at the mineral hot springs for a dip in the pool before arriving at our camp.

Day 16 - Okavango Delta The most rewarding and enjoyable way to explore and experience the beauty and serenity of this intricate system of lily covered channels and lagoons is by mokoro. We will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station where we will meet the polers. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels.

Day 5 - Namib-Naukluft National Park Every overland journey has some long travelling days and today is one of those as we venture deeper into the Namib Desert. Our destination is the dune fields that cover the western reaches of the desert. From the grasslands in the east to the red dunes of the west, the slowly changing landscapes represents the many faces of this desert country.

Day 6 - Sossusvlei Dunes - Namib-Naukluft National Park A brisk climb up Dune 45 offers us the perfect vantage point to marvel at the changing colours of the desert sunrise. Once satisfied we descend this famous dune and enjoy a hearty breakfast before catching a 4x4 transfer into Sossusvlei, here we will spend time on foot visiting the pans at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei.

the area. This morning we will make the 1-hour hike to visit the painting that is said to be around 2,000 years old.

Day 1 - Cape Town - Cederberg Region Leaving Cape Town this morning we make a last stop for a look back at Table Mountain from across Table Bay. The Cederberg region not only boasts spectacular mountains and citrus farms, but it is also the home of Rooibos tea. Today we will visit a working Rooibos tea farm and see the plants of Rooibos and Buchu that occur naturally in the wild.

Day 11/12 - Etosha National Park Rising early this morning we drive to the Etosha National Park. Etosha is the venue for some of the most unique game viewing experiences in Africa. Once we reach the park we begin with our first game drive as we make our way to our rest camp. Our second day in Etosha allows for a full day to continue our exploration of the park. No day on safari is ever the same and the suspense before that special sighting is the motivation that keeps our eyes wide open.

Day 2 - Namaqualand - Gariep (Orange) River Namaqualand presents us with our first experience of the Desert vistas that will accompany us in the days ahead. We continue our journey north and after a short stop for supplies in Springbok, we travel to our base on the banks of the Orange River.

Day 13 - Windhoek It is an early start this morning as we take aim for Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia. Upon arrival in Windhoek, we will take a short walk through the city centre and have the opportunity to view some of its better known landmarks.

Day 3 - Gariep (Orange) River While the Orange River was named after the Dutch Royal House, in recent times it has been referred to by its original name of Gariep, which simply means “river” in the indigenous KhoeKhoe language. The best way to experience the river is by getting out on the water and this morning we have the opportunity to join an optional canoe trip on the river.

Day 14 - Ghanzi Today we travel east to neighbouring Botswana and the Kalahari Desert. Starkly different to the Namib Desert after which Namibia is named, the Kalahari is no less dramatic and covers over 900 000 square kilometres. The San people have long been associated with this harsh environment and tonight we enjoy a traditional evening that provides an insight into their culture of song, dance and story-telling.

Day 4 - Fish River Canyon - Quiver Tree Forest - Giants Playground We rise early this morning and drive to the rim of the Fish River Canyon. We will have time to watch the morning sunrays filter through the canyon. After stretching our legs with a gentle walk along the rim of the canyon, we turn west and head for Keetmanshoop. Our afternoon will be spent meandering through the Quiver Tree Forest and The Giants Playground – named for the way in which the massive dolerite boulders have been moulded on each other - creating rock formations and a series of mazes.

Namib Desert

Day 15/16 - Okavango Delta Before departing Ghanzi we will enjoy an informative guided walk with the San community. After our walk, we head towards Maun, where upon arrival, you will have the opportunity to go on an optional scenic flight over the Delta (time and weather permitting). Heading out early, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the poling station.

Day 5 - Namib-Naukluft National Park Every overland journey has some long travelling days and today is one of those as we venture deeper into the Namib Desert. Our destination is the dune fields that cover the western reaches of the desert. From the grasslands in the east to the red dunes of the west the slowly changing landscapes represents the many faces of this desert country. Tonight we camp on the doorstep of the dune fields and listen to the unique calls of the elusive Barking Gecko.

Day 17 - Nata Leaving Maun behind us this morning we make our way towards the town of Nata. We will spend most of the day in our truck as we journey across the northern reaches of the Makgadikgadi Pans. Our activity package will afford us the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon guided game drive to the Nata Sanctuary, which forms the breeding ground for a host of water birds including pelicans and flamingo in their thousands.

Day 6 - Sossusvlei Dunes - Namib-Naukluft National Park A brisk climb up Dune 45 offers us the perfect vantage point to marvel at the changing colours of the desert. Once satisfied we descend this famous dune and enjoy a hearty breakfast before catching a 4x4 transfer into Sossusvlei, here we will spend time on foot visiting the pans at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. Tonight we empty the red sand from our shoes and spend the night under the magnificent desert stars, knowing that we have spent a full-day enjoying the wonders of this harsh land.

Okavango Delta

Day 18 - Chobe National Park We rise early this morning as we continue north to our base on the banks of the Chobe River. This afternoon is set aside for exploring the Chobe National Park. We begin our exploration in 4x4 vehicles, which allows us an up close and personal experience with the many elephants that frequent the river in the afternoons. Our day ends with a leisurely boat cruise and a meal served around the campfire.

Day 7 - Swakopmund Our final day in the desert begins as we join a local expert for an educational desert excursion. Reluctantly we leave the Namib behind and after a stop to mark our crossing of the Tropic of Capricorn, we continue to the Atlantic coastline. We make our way to the coastal town of Swakopmund, where adventure and a dose of civilisation await. We make a brief stop at Walvis Bay lagoon, where we hope to catch a glimpse of the flamingos that feed in the shallows. Arriving in Swakopmund we will have the opportunity to book some of the many adventures on offer.

Day 19 - Victoria Falls With the memories of our wildlife encounters firmly etched in our minds, we cross the border into Zimbabwe and travel the short distance to Victoria Falls. Today you have the opportunity to visit the spectacular Victoria Falls at your leisure. While much of today is dedicated to viewing the mighty Zambezi River as it drops into the Batoka Gorge below, the bustling adventure town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline in the afternoon. For the more relaxed traveller there are craft markets and coffee shops on offer as well

Day 8 - Swakopmund While for many it is the adrenaline fuelled adventures that will grab their attention, Swakopmund offers all that and more. Take the opportunity today to explore the town at your leisure, as there are a number of attractions for every taste. Swakopmund offers all the conveniences of a small city and is the perfect launching pad for the journey through the northern reaches of the land.

Day 9 - Spitzkoppe - Brandberg Leaving early, we make our way to the massive granite formations of Spitzkoppe which tower 700 metres above the desert plains below. The presence of rock art indicates their significance to the San people who lived here many years ago. We will enjoy a walk with a local guide and have the opportunity to view some examples of the San’s rock art before setting off for our overnight stop for the evening

Day 1/2/3 - Zanzibar Excursion We head to the ferry port and we board the ferry to Zanzibar. On arrival we will partake in a Spice Tour before reaching Nungwi on the northern point of the island. Our home for the next two nights, Nungwi offers a perfect stop to enjoy the beaches and activities on offer. Water sports are the order of the day and Nungwi offers fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving and a variety of ocean safari options. Whatever it is you chose to do, you will have ample opportunity to create some island memories. Our third day we travel to Stone Town. Boasting a rich history this bustling port was once a landmark on both the Slave and Spice trade routes.

Day 18 - Gorillas (Lake Bunyonyi) Crossing the Equator once more we travel south to the beautiful scenery of Lake Bunyonyi. With eager anticipation we prepare for the upcoming Gorilla trekking excursion and tonight we will receive a briefing on what to expect. Day 19 - Gorillas (Lake Bunyonyi) The mountain gorilla is extremely endangered and while exact numbers vary it is widely assumed that there are only around 650 left. Visiting the gorillas is a great way to support their future on earth as the money spent on permits is used for their protection. An extremely important part of the future conservation of the remaining gorillas rests in the community development work – as local communities change their attitudes towards wildlife and start to protect rather than poach, the future of the mountain gorilla is assured.

Day 4 - Dar es Salaam - Bagamoyo This morning we have some time to explore the sights of Stone Town, the rich history and vibrant markets are some of the highlights of any visit to Zanzibar. We bid farewell to the island and board our return ferry, on arrival back at the Dar es Salaam port.

Day 20 - Gorillas (Lake Bunyonyi) Although there are 2 days allocated to Gorilla Trekking you will only spend one day on the trek. The other days are there to provide a large enough window in which to obtain permits and to allow the entire group to trek if there are more than 6 of you on the tour. Today we will enjoy a visit to the Nyombi Village, a Pygmy village which is reached by motor boat from Bunyonyi Resort. We will have the opportunity to learn about the culture of the Pygmies and how they live.

Day 5 - Arusha Today we travel across the northern reaches of Tanzania, our destination tonight is the bustling town of Arusha. Northern Tanzania is home to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Kilimanjaro.

The 7th day we rise early and are collected from our base and transferred to the Ngorongoro Crater. We will spend the bulk of our day exploring the Crater floor in search of the animals which roam the plains. We will arrive back in Karatu in the afternoon. The 8th day is free for you to relax at camp, participate in the included highlights or some of the other optional activities.

Day 9 - Arusha Returning to Arusha, tonight we will reunite with our fellow travellers who opted for the Serengeti upgrade and we share out experiences of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

Day 23 - Eldoret Returning to Kenya we visit Eldoret, the country’s 5th largest city. The Great Rift Valley is still the dominant geographical feature of this region and the altitude at Eldoret is 2100 metres above sea level.

Day 10 - Nairobi We cross the border into Kenya this morning and make our way to Nairobi. Day 11 - Masai Mara National Reserve We leave the capital of Nairobi and travel to the Masai Mara, world renowned for its endless plains of wild animals and beauty. The visit to the Masai Mara is operated in safari type vehicles and not the Nomad truck. For this reason, you are asked to pack a small overnight bag to travel with.

Day 24 - Nairobi Returning to Nairobi this afternoon we reflect on many memories that we have gathered together and brace ourselves for a return to the busy streets of Nairobi. Your tour ends upon arrival in Nairobi.

Day 12 - Masai Mara National Reserve The rolling grasslands of the Masai Mara offer ideal game viewing and photographic opportunities. Today we will spend the entire day game driving through the Mara in search of all the animals.
