The Real Deal
Just back from visiting six
parks in Tanzania, I'm thrilled to tell you about some outstanding
camps and lodges that align with our common values.
Passionate guides. Gorgeous
settings. Off the beaten path. Unspoiled wilderness.
Unpretentious comfort and style with an old-world safari feel.
Welcoming staff. Dedication to the environment and communities. And a
focus on what it's all about... your experience.
Nomad Tanzania offers nine small
safari camps in Tarangire, Serengeti, Katavi, Mahale, Ruaha and the Selous. As
the world becomes more and more corporatized, even safaris have become
impacted! We so value these camps/lodges that keep their focus on your
experience and let their own heart and character shine through.
Please take a glimpse of what's
on offer and then contact us about experiencing authentic Africa - and
Nomad Tanzania - first hand.

Why I Keep
Coming Back to Africa
with Erin West
Q. How many times have you been to Africa?
Eight times. Three times this past year alone!
Q. You have traveled all
over the world. Why does Africa keep you coming back?
first reaction to Africa was a feeling that I had come home. So for me,
it's like I keep going back home. I love the beauty and warmth of its
people, and their spirit amidst terribly difficult circumstances. Of
course the wildlife is spectacular, and the incredible sunrises and
sunsets are unlike any other I've seen in the world. Africa is so
diverse, there's always something new to experience.
Q. Africa is a big
investment. Why not just go to the Caribbean or Central America?
What I experience in Africa far outweighs the cost. Plus GS really
works on making the trip as cost-effective as possible within my
budget. Africa is a once in a lifetime (and sometimes
life-changing) experience that nobody should miss.
Q. Are you concerned about
health issues when traveling?
A. No not at all. There are
precautions that one takes ... you take your malaria meds, you're
careful what you eat and bring your antibiotics and bug spray with you
and that's it. The Ebola cases are so far away
it doesn't concern me at all.
