Where else can you meet up with a real Masai tribe and get invited into their village? See the Great Migration and a lion kill in the same day? Hike high up into the Ugandan mountains and spend an hour amongst the very rare mountain gorillas?  Sponsor an orphan and give her life some hope?  […]

Brrrraaaap Brrrraaaap brrrraaaaaapp!!  Once again Lisa, my Australian tentmate, and I woke to the sound of my iPhone’s alarm function, and only to realize that it was still dark outside the two-man tent provided to us by Nomad Adventure Tours.  I laid there in the darkness dreading getting up.  It was going to be another […]

As expected, 4:30am came sooner than anyone had hoped it would.  After our unexpected torrential downpour experience the night before, we were happy to see that the rains had died down during the night– leaving only a campground that squished underneath our shoes as we brought our bags back to Junior, our Nomad Adventure Tours […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Masai Mara & Gorillas Tour Day 2

November 7, 2013

When our alarms went off at 5:45am we had no clue that Day 2 would go down in tour history as “Kill/Migration Day.”  The previous day my Nomad Adventure Tours group had agreed that we wanted to wake up exceptionally early in attempt to catch the Great Migration, since we had heard reports that the […]

Brrraap  Brrraap Brrraap!  The familiar sound of my alarm function woke me at the ungodly hour of 6:00am.  I found myself in a basic hotel room at the Hotel Boulevard in Nairobi, Kenya.  Today was the day I’d been waiting nearly 14months for.  Today I would be commencing my 38-day tour with Nomad Adventure Tours […]
