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.  […]

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 […]

Brrraapp brrapp brrapp… The alarm went off at 4:30am.  Today was a morning I had been waiting for since the day I chose which tour I would go on.  It was the morning we were going to climb Dune 45 before sunrise.  At 170m high, it was going to be a race to the top […]

I woke up before 6am and put my personal items back onto the Nomad Adventure Tours […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Day 3

July 25, 2012

Day three started out at seven AM for me.  Half of the Nomad Adventure Tours group were going canoeing, but not being overly interested in canoeing I decided to skip out on that particular activity. I sat in the camp kitchen and enjoyed some coffee as the canoers came in to get their breakfast before […]
