Nomad Africa Vehicles
Nomad vehicles have been especially designed to suit the needs of the travellers and endure the tough African roads, whilst providing a comfortable journey. Based on past travellers feedback; Nomad have designed their overland trucks to include individual lockers (one for each traveller) for storage of luggage , and large glass sliding windows to enjoy the spectacular African views! The vehicles also have fridges, a traveller safe, camping tables, chairs and sleeping mats on our camping tours – everything you need! In East Africa on only the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater assisted camping excursions, the Nomad tours switch to 4×4 safari vehicles used for game driving (please refer to your itinerary for more details in this regard).
Nomad Africa Crew
Enjoy peace of mind with experienced crew consisting of a Driver and Trip Leader who also cooks for you. The crew have a wealth of knowledge and experience acquired from life on the road in the African bush. They are always willing to share their knowledge with you and assist you along the safari. The guides are individually coached and mentored to constantly improve client feedback.
Nomad Africa Accommodation and Campsites
On the Nomad Camping Tours you will camp in the wild in two-man canvas dome tents (with built-in mosquito nests). The tents are easy to put up, and your guide will help you. Sleeping mats are provided, but you need to bring your own sleeping bag, pillow and a towel or two. There are basic amenities and some campsites have pools and bars (although it is suggested you take your own alcohol which you can purchase along the way).
On Nomad Accommodated Tours you enjoy a more comfortable experience by staying in bedded accommodation (twin and single rooms) within hostels, hotels, chalets, lodge-style bungalows, permanent tents and traditional African huts. You can expect 2-3 star accommodation with access to pools (at select properties) and bars at some of the venues.
Nomad Food on Tour
On both camping and accommodated tours you can enjoy tasty meals with local organic ingredients that are purchased from local markets that support the communities – the guides often stop at a local market to stock up on fresh items. The breakfasts are fairly simple consisting of bread (or toast), spreads, cereals, fruit, rusks with occasional hot breakfasts such as eggs bacon or pancakes. Lunches include sandwiches with a variety of fillings and salads. Dinners such as curries, stews, pastas, braais and even roasts will be enjoyed around the campfire.
