Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Day 13 & 14

Waking up in Windhoek was especially nice – not only having the luxurious king sized bed, but knowing that we were going to be treated to a breakfast that was a touch fancier than we had grown accustomed to since living on the truck for the past 12 days was something I’m sure that the […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Day 12

August 20, 2012

Waking up on the last morning in Etosha was both peaceful and sad at the same time.  Coming all the way to Africa and being the animal lover that I am, I was in my glory being in the national park, witnessing so much beautiful wildlife in their natural habitat.  It was really sad knowing […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Day 10 & 11

August 12, 2012

When you think of traveling to Africa – what’s the first thing you think of seeing? For me, that thought would instantly be “safari.” Day 10 marked not only the halfway point on our journey from Cape Town to Victoria Falls, but it also marked the day we would be going to our first national […]

**NOTE: This article contains pictures depicting slight nudity** On day 9 of my overland tour with Nomad Adventure Tours, I woke up to the sound of nothing.  As I lay there in my sleeping bag, I opened my eyes and glanced out of my tent’s window flap that I had left open the night before.  […]

August 5, 2012

We had been told to be ready to leave the lodge at 10am.  We had been warned that we would be spending the night at the Spitzkoppe camp with no running water, and the following two days without drinking water.  Sue and I made sure to set the alarm early enough so we could walk […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Day 6 & 7

August 2, 2012

I opened my eyes to the now familiar interior of my tent and Sue sleeping peacefully beside me.  I knew I was starting to get used to waking up at ungodly hours because my alarm (usually set for 5:45 or 6:00) had not yet gone off.  I changed into the outfit I had set out […]
