A lambent world of wildlife and the planet’s biggest unbroken volcanic crater.

2 to 3 million years ago, a volcano bigger than Kilimanjaro imploded; and the magma retreated leaving a vast collapsed hollow. Now in the shadow of 3000ft high crater walls, the resident wildlife is diverse and easily tracked - cheetah, elephant, hyena, hippo, lion, leopard, and a vast array of bird-life, including lesser flamingos. Views from the rim bring flashes of how the planet's first humans must have experienced it.

Beyond, lie Empakai, Olmoti, OlDonyo Lengai: legendary volcanic peaks and valleys for us to explore, absurdly deserted due to the rock stardom of their famous cousin. The adventurer in us absolutely loves these places: a crowded field of Jackson’s Whydah birds all a-pogo, a pair of leopards peering through old man's beard on a pillarwood tree, one elderly Maasai lady tending her pots in a deserted highland village.

Deep in Maasai territory, this otherwordly Highland setting brings wildlife and culture together for a truly unique experience.

In a grove of sausage trees in Ruaha National Park on the banks of the Ifuguru River, in the best game area in the park.

This is to South Africa’s Kruger Park what most safaris are to Whipsnade Zoo.

The hugely respected Nomad Tanzania…have chosen to build in an area of acacia trees and kigelia trees...six large canvas tents stand in a line that traces the run of the river and are spaced to ensure privacy...they are also equipped for comfort, with hot bucket showers and enormous beds

This internship between Nomad and the Hope Centre is very good, it is helping these girls stand for themselves.

To look down into the immense bowl of the Ngorongoro Crater is to stand at the gates of heaven.
