G Adventures meets Vamadu

G Adventures wurde 1990 von Bruce Poon Tip gegründet. Sein einziges Startkapital waren zwei Kreditkarten und das brennende Verlangen, eine authentische, nachhaltige Reiseerfahrung anzubieten, wie die Welt sie noch nicht gesehen hatte. Indem er abenteuerlustigen Reisenden eine Alternative zu den üblichen Touristenhotels, Kreuzfahrten und Busreisen anbot, veränderte er nicht nur die Art, wie Menschen ihren Urlaub betrachten, sondern auch das Angesicht des Reisens für immer. Das einzige, was sich in den letzten 25 Jahren nicht verändert hat, ist der tief verwurzelte Glaube an deren Grundwerte, die das Leben und G Adventure bis heute bestimmen.

Wir Vamadu-Gründer möchten genau diese Art von nachhaltigem, unabhängigem Tourismus für Individualreisende fördern und freuen uns, dass G Adventures somit selbst Teil der Vamadu Story wird!

  • G Adventures Abenteuerreisen


    West Africa Cruise - Cape Town to Accra in wenigen Worten

    Menschen haben in Westafrika neue Bräuche und Ideen kennengelernt, seit es Menschen gibt. Jetzt bist du an der Reihe. Du hast die Gelegenheit, von der MS Expedition aus eine der lebhaftesten (und seltsam unterfrequentierten) Regionen Afrikas zu erkunden. Dein Hotel folgt dir wohin du auch gehst. Mit dieser perfekten Mischung aus Aktivitäten und Erholung hast du reichlich Zeit, um in Begleitung erfahrener Naturforscher seltene Vögel und die lokale Tierwelt zu beobachten, dich auf den lokalen Märkten unter die Einheimischen zu mischen und gemeinsam mit unserem erfahrenen Expedition-Team, zu dem Naturforscher, Historiker, Anthropologen und Ornithologen gehören, die Region kennenzulernen. Auf See genießen wir auch Verkostungen südafrikanischer Weine mit unserem eigenen Sommelier und tägliche Vorträge von Afrika-Experten. Afrika auf hoher See? Wir haben es zuerst auch nicht für möglich gehalten.

    Abenteuerreise Route West Africa Cruise - Cape Town to Accra

    Tag 1 Kapstadt, Südafrika

    Willkommen in Kapstadt, der weltoffensten Stadt des Kontinents und einem der atemberaubendsten städtischen Räume der Erde! Heute ist ein reiner Anreisetag, es gibt keine geplanten Aktivitäten. Dein Ankunftstransfer ist inbegriffen.

    Tag 2 Kapstadt (1F,1M,1A)

    Unsere Tour beginnt mit einer Seilbahnfahrt hinauf zum Gipfel des Tafelberges. Der höchste Punkt dieses 3 km breiten Plateaus liegt auf über 1.000 Metern. Von hier aus hast du spektakuläre Aussicht auf die umliegende Landschaft. Wir genießen ein Mittagessen im Seaforth Restaurant, bevor wir Boulder Beach besuchen, einen wunderschönen Sandstrand voller großer Granitbrocken. Seit 1982 ist es die Heimat von über 3.000 Brillenpinguinen, die hier in Höhlen und Vertiefungen brüten. Am Nachmittag gehen wir an Bord der MS Expedition und beginnen unsere Reise entlang einer der am wenigsten bekannten Küsten der Welt.

    Tag 3 Auf See (1F,1M,1A)

    Die Seetage sind gefüllt mit faszinierenden und unterhaltsamen Bildungs-Programmen von unserem erfahrenen Expeditionsteam. Vorträge und Präsentationen zur Geschichte, Anthropologie und Flora und Fauna der Region wechseln sich ab mit Seminaren zu den Themen Malen und Fotografieren und Verkostungen südafrikanischer Weine. Die Expedition verfügt über zahlreiche öffentliche Bereiche in der Lounge und der Bibliothek, und im beliebten Pub des Schiffes kannst du immer neue Freunde treffen. Du kannst auch an Deck entspannen oder den Horizont mit Fernglas und Kamera nach Vögeln und Meeresbewohnern absuchen. Wie immer genießt du erstklassige Abendessen im Speisesaal des Schiffes.

    Tag 4 Luderitz, Namibia (1F,1M,1A)

    Heute besuchen wir die kleine namibische Stadt Luderitz und die Geisterstadt Kolmanskop. Aufgrund ihrer isolierten Lage und ihrer vorwiegend deutschen Bevölkerung ist die deutsche Architektur und Kultur in diesen Städten vorherrschend. Kolmanskop ist bald nach seiner Gründung wieder verlassen worden, als neue Diamantenfunde weiter im Süden seine Bevölkerung wieder fortlockten. Heute ist es eine Geisterstadt und ein faszinierender Ort zu erkunden.

    Tag 5 Walvis Bay, Namibia (1F,1M,1A)

    Am Morgen auf See haben wir vielleicht Gelegenheit, südafrikanische Seebären und Kaptölpel zu beobachten. Erkunde nach der Ankunft in Walvis Bay die Landschaften der Namib-Wüste auf dem Weg zu einer Stadtführung in Swakopmund und möglicherweise einer Gelegenheit, mehr über die Tierwelt im Mündungsgebiet zu erfahren.

    Tage 6-7 Auf See (2F,2M,2A)

    Tag 8 Lobito (Benguela), Angola (1F,1M,1A)

    Heute genießen wir einen Besuch der malerischen Stadt Sao Felipe de Benguela in Angola. Benguela wurde 1617 von den Portugiesen gegründet und spielte eine wichtige Rolle in der Geschichte des Sklavenhandels.

    Tag 9 Auf See (1F,1M,1A)

    Tag 10 Pointe-Noire, Kongo (1F,1M,1A)

    Heute besuchen wir Pointe-Noire im Kongo. Auf dem Programm stehen Besuche der Klippen der Diosso-Schlucht, des Museums und des äußerst belebten Markts der Stadt.

    Tag 11 Auf See (1F,1M,1A)

    Tage 12-13 São Tomé und Príncipe (2F,2M,2A)

    Diese Insel, eine ehemalige portugiesische Kolonie, ist ein tropisches Paradies voller Strände, Wasserfälle, Wälder und herzlicher Menschen. Wir besuchen die Hauptstadt, São Tomé – einst eine wichtige Station im Sklavenhandel – und erkunden eine nahegelegene Plantage. São Tomé ist berühmt unter Vogelfreunden. Über 140 Arten wurden hier in der Umgebung identifiziert. Auf einem Ausflug mit Vogelbeobachtung hast du Gelegenheit, einen Blick auf die einheimische Tierwelt der Insel zu werfen. Am nächsten Tag erkunden wir Príncipe mit einem Zodiac-Boot und genießen seine Strände, Wasserfälle und Regenwälder. Beim Schwimmen in den tropischen Gewässern kannst du herrliche entspannen. Auch hier gibt es einen großen Reichtum an Vogelarten, darunter viele einheimische Spezies. Wir halten die Augen offen nach Graupapageien. Du kannst optional auch die winzige Stadt Santo Antonio besichtigen, die kleinste Stadt der Welt.

    Hinweise zum Ablauf der Tour

    While it is our intention to adhere to the route described below, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations. The itinerary is brief, as we never know exactly where our journey will take us. Due to our style of travel and the regions we visit, travel can be unpredictable. The Trip Details document is a general guide to the tour and region and any mention of specific destinations or wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be visited or encountered. Aboard expedition trips visits to research stations depend on final permission. Additionally, any travel times listed are approximations only and subject to vary due to local circumstances.

    Wichtige Hinweise

    As a service to our passengers, the MS Expedition will apply for group entry visas for shore excursions during West Coast of Africa Cruise. Passengers are responsible for the costs associated with obtaining these visas. Please see Visa section for more information. The Expedition is an adventure Expedition ship and does not offer an elevator Traveling West Africa is an opportunity to help developing nations embrace tourism. Do not expect tourism / public works infrastructure to be up to par with other areas of the world. The port cites that are open to us are often a great distance from cultural points of interest and there may be shore excursions with extended bus trips to access sites of interest.

    Chief Experience Officers?

    A carefully chosen team will lead our voyage. Our expedition ships boast an international team of professional naturalists and lecturers. Their goal is to provide an informed and balanced interpretation of the destination, accomplished through stimulating lectures, day-to-day briefings, and informal discussions. Your lecturers and Expedition Leader will cover all aspects of the voyage including ornithology, marine biology, geography, geology, history and the environment, as well as practical things like photography. The expedition staff work conscientiously with you on deck and in the field, improving your observational skills to allow you to experience all that the destination has to offer. Their strong sense of ethics and ecological knowledge make for stimulating and mindful conversation whether onshore or at the dinner table. The Expedition Staff will pilot the Zodiac landing craft used for shore landings and Zodiac cruises; they are experienced drivers who operate the Zodiacs in a responsible manner.

    Was packe ich ein?

    In the worlds most remote destinations that the G Expedition travels to we cannot offload our plastics, glass or tin waste for recycling. Therefore, we try to reduce what single use items that we use. You will see on the ship that every effort is being used to stop the use of single use plastic containers, bags and other items. In an effort to prevent plastic waste from entering the waste stream, we are asking for your help. We offer exceptional drinking water on the ship with refilling stations for your re-useable water containers. So bring your favorite water bottle! Plastic Items such as single use shampoo/conditioner plastic containers cannot be recycled, so please plan to bring any plastics back to your home countries for recycling. Please do not bring single use items that you intend to leave behind such plastic bags and throw away razors. Your participating in helping to prevent pollution and promote recycling is greatly appreciated. Dress on board is informal. Plan to bring comfortable, casual clothing for all activities. Always pack one water proof layer in the event there is rain. However, it's important to note that the weather will be hot and lightweight clothing is strongly suggested. It's helpful to note that we may have multiple visits to local schools in some of the villages visited. You may wish to bring donations in the form of school and art supplies. Our team will help facilitate with contributing these items directly to the head master of the school. Below is a suggested list - Art supplies - Pencils, pens and paper - Deflated soccer ball - 5 separate postcards of iconic places from your town, city or home country.

    Reinigung / Laundry

    Aboard the M/S Expedition laundry facilities are provided at a nominal charge.

    Visa

    Important Information Regarding Visas As a service to our passengers, the MS Expedition will apply for group entry visas for shore excursions during West Coast of Africa Cruise. Each passenger is responsible for the costs associated with each visa. We expect the total cost of all Visas to range from $500 to $600 USD per passenger. Estimated Visa costs at time of sailing will be charged to each passengers shipboard account upon embarkation and reconciled at the end of the cruise if need be. Note that visa costs are at the discretion of each government and in our experience exact costs can change at short notice. Passengers should confirm prior to departure that they are eligible to obtain a visa for each of the countries visited either with their home countries foreign affairs office or see your travel agent. As always all countries require a valid passport (with a minimum 6 months validity). Your passport should also have 10 blank pages for Visas. A final reminder is that travellers must also obtain the applicable travel Visas to enter South Africa. We encourage you to check with your local Embassy, Consulate or High Commission to see if you require a travel Visa to enter South Africa.

    Geld wechseln

    Onboard the Expedition: While on board our Expedition ships, cash and most major credit cards (VISA, Mastercard and AMEX) are accepted to pay for your onboard account to cover incidental charges such as bar bill, laundry visas and shop purchased. As Expedition will travel to numerous countries during her voyage up the West Coast of Africa the crew of the Expedition will assist passengers in changing money into local currency at each port. We recommend bringing small denomination US Dollar and Euro BILLS as many markets and local mearchants will accept this. Before and after the cruise: Credit cards and debit cards are very useful for cash advances. Visa cards are the most widely accepted cards. While ATMs are widely available, there are no guarantees that your credit or debit cards will actually work overseas. Check with your bank. You should be aware that to purchase products or services on a credit card a fee of 5%-10% usually applies. Do not rely on credit or debit cards as your only source of money. A combination of US dollars cash, travellers cheques and cards is best. Always take more rather than less, as you don't want to spoil the trip by constantly feeling short of funds.

    Trinkgeld

    Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. It is an expression of satisfaction with the persons who have assisted you on your expedition. The industry standard and suggested amount is USD $10 - 15 per person per day spent on board. Of course, tipping is a personal choice and the suggested amount is set only as a guideline. The money is collected by the Hotel Manager at the end of the voyage and distributed amongst the crew and Expedition Staff.

    Gesundheit

    All passengers on the West Africa Cruise are required to submit a medical form. Available here, http://www.gadventures.com/medical_form/ Follow the directions on the form, and if necessary, a Doctor's authorization will be required. It is very important that we are advised of any special meal requirements, food allergies, or prescribed medication when you confirm your tour. The ship is equipped with a small infirmary with typically required medications and limited equipment. The ship's doctor is available for visits during the day and is available 24 hours per day for emergencies. Yellow Fever Certificate Note: A Yellow Fever Certificate (International Certificate of Vaccination) is a REQUIREMENT for this West Africa itinerary, as we do visit yellow fever endemic countries. Please consult with a travel clinic / Doctor prior to travel. The yellow fever shot requires 10 days to become effective. The vaccination should be at the latest, two weeks prior to travel. Health regulations in your country of residence may require specific inoculations for the countries that you will visit on our voyage. We suggest that you confer with your own physician to check specific requirements, and to be sure your routine immunizations, such as tetanus, diphtheria and hepatitis A, are up-to-date before traveling. Older travelers, in particular, may wish to consider preventive measures against influenza and pneumonia.

    Allgemeine Sicherheitstipps

    Many national governments provide a regularly updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure. We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, travellers' cheques, cash and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewellery at home - you won't need it while travelling. Many of the hotels we use have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage. When travelling on a group trip, please note that your CEO has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the trip itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Your CEO will accompany you on all included activities. During your trip you will have some free time to pursue your own interests, relax and take it easy or explore at your leisure. While your CEO will assist you with options available in a given location please note that any optional activities you undertake are not part of your itinerary, and we offer no representations about the safety of the activity or the standard of the operators running them. Please use your own good judgment when selecting an activity in your free time. Although the cities visited on tour are generally safe during the day, there can be risks to wandering throughout any major city at night. It is our recommendation to stay in small groups and to take taxis to and from restaurants, or during night time excursions. Protests and Demonstrations- Protests and demonstrations, even those that are well intended, have the potential to turn violent with no warning. Counter protests can also turn violent. Action by security forces to disperse demonstrators and protesters may occur at any time. If you are in an area where demonstrators or protesters are gathering, avoid the temptation of staying for a good photo opportunity and leave the area immediately. Water based activities have an element of danger and excitement built into them. We recommend only participating in water based activities when accompanied by a guide(s). We make every reasonable effort to ensure the fun and adventurous element of any water based activities (in countries with varying degrees of operating standards) have a balanced approach to safety. It is our policy not to allow our CEOs to make arrangements on your behalf for water based activities that are not accompanied by guide(s). Swimming, including snorkeling, is always at your own risk. We take all prudent measures in relation to your safety. For ways to further enhance your personal safety while traveling, please visit: www.gadventures.com/travel-resources/safety/

    Sicherheit auf dieser Tour

    We recommend that you wear minimal jewelry and that you keep valuable items safely stored in our complimentary safety deposit box, which is located at the Purser's Desk.

    Medizinsche Infos

    All passengers on this trip are required to fill out our medical form.

    Planeterra-The G Adventures Foundation

    Through our commitment to responsible tourism we have developed the Planeterra Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of people and communities around the world through support of international charities, local organizations and community projects in the places that we visit on our tours. G Adventures matches all individual donations and pays all administration costs, which means that 100% of each donation is doubled and goes directly to support our projects. For more information about Planeterra and the projects we support, or to make a donation, please visit www.planeterra.org Planeterra Dollar-A-Day Program Our Dollar-A-Day Program provides travellers with the opportunity to help us give back to the people and places visited on our tours by donating one dollar per day for the duration of their tour. 100% of these proceeds will go directly to support our Planeterra projects. To participate in this program please indicate at the time of booking that you would like to participate in G Adventures’ Dollar-A-Day program, either by clicking the check box online, or by advising your G Adventures specialist or travel agent. (Note: Donation will be charged in the currency of your booking)

    Associated Planeterra Project

    Planeterra Foundation, G Adventures' non-profit, is working with our Marine Team to support an Ocean's Health Fund. Our mission is to help support education, research, and take action in the global clean-up and protection of our planets's oceans by restoring natural habitats and supporting projects that eliminate waste such as plastic from our waterways. Through our partners, we are raising funds to restore habitat preservation in Antarctica. We are working to eradicate the invasive rat population on the island of South Georgia. South Georgia is known for its rich diversity of wildlife and is home to over 100 million breeding birds, including the albatross. Through the introduction of Norway rats brought over by whaling and sealing vessels, severe damage to the island's ecosystem has deteriorated the habitat of hundred of thousands of these birds. We are working to eradicate the rat population on this island, supporting helicopter baiting techniques that has so far cleared the most populated 12,800 hectares, and the area of the island most inhabited for bird breeding. Through your donations, we have started Phase 2 which will clear 1,000 square kilometres and return the island to it's native form. Working with research scientists,we are also raising funds to support an oceans cleanup program in the Pacific Gyre. Using sailing vessels to remove pollution directly from the ocean and to conduct research on fish and marine organisms we hope to help restore the oceans environments we love to explore. For more information on these projects and/or to make a donation please visit our website at www.planeterra.org or contact us at info@planeterra.org


  • Warum G Adventures?



    Warum Abenteuerreisen?

    Erlebnis- und Abenteuerreisen sind mehr als nur ein Urlaub. Sie sind eine Chance, deine Welt besser kennenzulernen, indem du den Menschen, Orten und Dingen, die sie so besonders machen, wirklich nahekommst ohne auf die Flexibilität einer selbst organisierten Reise zu verzichten. Dies ist dein Planet. Komm und lerne ihn kennen!

    Warum Kleingruppen?

    In einer kleinen Gruppe kann man die Welt besser entdecken als alleine oder bei einer großen Busreise. Kleingruppen bieten Sicherheit, Zugänglichkeit, Kameradschaft und eine stärkere Verbundenheit mit deinem Reiseziel als bei jeder anderen Art des Reisens.

    Warum G Adventures?

    G Adventures ist seit über 20 Jahren Experte für Abententeuersreisen in kleinen Gruppen. Das haben sie geschafft, indem sie den Reisenden zuhören und ihnen genau das bieten, was sie suchen: großartige Reisen an großartigen Orten mit großartigen Menschen zu leistbaren Preisen.



    G Adventures Gründer Bruce Poon Tip

    G Adventures meets Vamadu

    G Adventures wurde bereits 1990 von Bruce Poon Tip gegründet. Als Backpacker mit Herz & Seele, waren sein einziges Startkapital zwei Kreditkarten und das brennende Verlangen, eine authentische, nachhaltige Reiseerfahrung anzubieten, wie die Welt sie noch nicht gesehen hatte. Indem er abenteuerlustigen Individualreisenden eine Alternative zu den üblichen Touristenhotels, Kreuzfahrten und Busreisen anbot, veränderte er nicht nur die Art, wie Menschen ihren Urlaub betrachten, sondern auch das Angesicht des Reisens für immer. Das einzige, was sich in den letzten 25 Jahren nicht verändert hat, ist der tief verwurzelte Glaube an deren Grundwerte, die das Leben und G Adventure bis heute bestimmen.


    Wir Vamadu-Gründer möchten genau diese Art von nachhaltigem, unabhängigem Tourismus für Individualreisende & Backpacker fördern und freuen uns, dass G Adventures somit selbst Teil der Vamadu Story wird!
