When to travel and what to experience in 2012
No matter when you travel with Nomad to Southern or East Africa, you can be guaranteed that there will be countless new places and faces to discover. You will be amazed and blown away by the beauty of the landscape, the generosity of the people and the unpredictability of the wild animals. But as you put your travel calendar for 2012 together, you may like a little guidance.
Our in-house designer, Shannon Fletcher, has put together packs of super cute Christmas Cards! Cards don’t come cheaper these days than R20 for a pack of 4 cards. All of the proceeds of the cards will go directly to the Helderberg Animal Welfare Society, start the spirit of Christmas giving by buying some of these cards from us. We have boxes of them available at the Greenmarket Square office, please support this initiative, the animals will definitely appreciate it.
Our Nomads on Tour
There is so much excitement about our Zimbabwe Tour and our new Karoo, Kalahari and West Coast Tour and we can’t wait to share it with you!
One of our consultants, Chris du Preez travelled on the Zimbabwe Tour in September this year and if you’d like to see some great pictures from his tour, please have a look at his blog here
Tosca Korver, our Operations Manager, did a reconnaissance mission – it was bloody and gory – to make sure that the destinations on the Karoo, Kalahari and West Coast tour were up to Nomad standards. She came back with some pretty “epic” tales! Don’t miss this blog, it is hysterically funny! Read it here.
