Nomad Adventure Tours: Masai Mara & Gorillas Tour Day 7

November 21, 2013

Day 7 of my Nomad Adventure Tours Masai Mara and Gorillas tour started at the obscenely early hour of 5:00am – when my alarm woke both me and Lisa (my Australian tentmate) from our respective slumbers.  We excitedly sprung up from our thin camping mattresses and got ready for our trekking adventure as quickly as […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Masai Mara & Gorillas Tour Days 4,5,6

November 18, 2013

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 3 (part 1)

November 11, 2013

Before my iPhone’s alarm function had the opportunity to go off – at the scheduled time of 5:30am, I heard the rustling of other campers and the faint sound of their alarms going off.  After lying comfortably in the warmth of my sleeping bag, I decided to get up and start my day.  Trying to […]

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 […]

Nomad Adventure Tours: Cape Town to Vic Falls Tour Review

September 18, 2012

After spending the last two months reliving my time traveling through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe with Nomad Adventure Tours in my day-by-day series, I think it is only fair to my readers that I give you my thoughts about the company itself. 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 […]

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 […]
