Where To Stay: Adventure Lodge Victoria Falls

September 4, 2013

Have you found yourself in the middle of Victoria Falls requiring a place to stay, but don’t know where to start looking?  Perhaps you’ve just finished an overland tour like my tour from Cape Town to Victoria Falls with Nomad Adventure Tours, and were looking to spend a few extra days next to one of […]

For the Love of Africa

March 29, 2013

I sat on the ridge of the monolithic, rust-colored sand dunes as I watched the sun rise up over the horizon.  In that moment I immediately felt the warm rays of the sun wash over my face, and smiled to myself, while in my head I could hear the beating of an African drum.  Watching […]

What I Packed for Africa

I have made no attempt to hide the fact that I […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Day 20

September 15, 2012

I woke up bright and early- before my alarm. I had intended on having a big sleep in to the lazy hour of 8:30am.  Trust me, when you’ve been waking up before the sun even peeks up over the horizon, 8:30 is pure gluttonous luxury!  I pulled on my tights and t-shirt and made my […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Day 19

September 11, 2012

“Brrraaap brrraaap brraaap!”  My iPhone’s alarm function chirped at 5:00am on the dot. I remember making a mental note that I really had to change the ringtone that I had selected to wake me up – I was getting sick of hearing it, and it wasn’t making waking up in the pitch-black of the early […]
