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!

    Hinweise zur Tourbeschreibung

    The information in this trip details document has been compiled with care and is provided in good faith. However it is subject to change, and does not form part of the contract between the client and the operator. The itinerary featured is correct at time of printing. It may differ slightly to the one in the brochure. Occasionally our itineraries change as we make improvements that stem from past travellers, comments and our own research. Sometimes it can be a small change like adding an extra meal along the itinerary. Sometimes the change may result in us altering the tour for the coming year. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding experience. Please note that our brochure is usually released in November each year. If you have booked from the previous brochure you may find there have been some changes to the itinerary. VERY IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you print a final copy of your Trip Details to review a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans.

    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

    1. An essential part of your safari is participation - from putting up your tent or packing away it in the mornings while camping, to helping with clean up and dishes after meals - it is all part of your adventure and when everyone puts in a little effort the trip will run smoothly. Your CEO will oversee all the meal preparation, but we do ask the clients to lend a hand as needed and help with the washing up. Team spirit is part of the fun! All camping equipment (with the exception of your sleeping bag and pillow) is supplied. We supply dome tents and assembly/disassembly takes only 5 minutes. All tents have built-in mesh insect nets on the doors and windows. Mattresses are also available, which are approximately 4cm thick, warm and comfortable. 2. Sleeping bags can not be rented on any of our Africa overland or safari trips 3. Migration – Tanzania and Kenya The Seronera Plains, which lie in the southeast of the National Park and extend into the western Ngorongoro Conservation Area, form the main ungulate calving grounds of the Serengeti. The wildebeest typically disperse into the Seronera plains during the short rains, which fall in late November or early December, before calving in January, and staying put until the end of the long rains from January to early May. Towards the end of April the wildebeest start to congregate on the southern plains in the preparation for the 800km northward migration. The major obstacle faced by the wildebeest on this migration is the crossing for the Grumeti River through the western corridor, which typically occurs from June into early July. From July to October, the ungulates disperse again, with about half of them crossing the Mara River into Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve and the remainder spreading out through the northern and western Serengeti. By late October the animals have generally started to plod back southward to the Seronera Plains, to arrive there in late November when the cycle starts all over again. 4. This is not a physically demanding journey; however, travelling can be difficult, as long drives and poor road conditions are the rule as opposed to the exception in both Kenya and Tanzania. A safari is about travelling to see animals, so we cover long distances crossing the country to visit different game parks. Once there, we spend the majority of the time viewing game while driving in the parks. This translates to a lot of driving. Despite this, the diversity and scenery of the African landscape, the local culture and abundant wildlife are all well worth the experience. 5. LUGGAGE COMPLICATIONS: It occasionally happens that luggage on international flights into Nairobi does not arrive, especially with, but not exclusive to, major airlines out of London-Heathrow or Schiphol (Amsterdam). Please be aware that this may happen, especially if you have a tight connection in either of these centres, are flying with different airlines with a connection, have a last minute flight change or re-route, or fly from or connect through another African centre. Please be prepared and keep all important documentation and valuables on your person. As well we recommend a change of clothes in your hand luggage. If unfortunately this does happen, and your luggage does not arrive, you should be entitled to a limited initial compensation from your airline. In Nairobi, the arrival of lost luggage normally takes between 48 and 72 hours after the initial plane’s arrival. The airlines technically should be responsible to forward your luggage to you, to your hotel or elsewhere in Kenya. You may find that your tour will begin, and you still have not received your luggage. Considering that the customer service standards in Kenya are different from home, and that we find that the airlines are not always pro-active in helping luggage in its care be reunited with its owner, it is recommended that you purchase locally a few needed items, begin your tour, and hire someone locally to persist with the your airline to retrieve your luggage. Your CEO or local representative will be able to help you organize this, and once your luggage is retrieved, it should be able to be forwarded to you – depending where you are. Please note that any costs that you may incur for luggage retrieval or sending luggage are not the responsibility of G Adventures, though we will always strive to assist you in any way possible. You should always keep all receipts and documentation, and contact your airline or insurance provider for reimbursement. 6. Flying through London-Heathrow to East Africa? Please note that regardless of the rules in other centres, travellers flying from, or connecting in, London-Heathrow are currently only permitted one carry-on piece of luggage and one small personal bag (purse, laptop-size bag, briefcase) on board on flights to Nairobi. If you arrive to the security gate with 2 pieces, you will be forced to check-in one of them, which may result in complications noted above. This policy is in place as of the time of writing, though local rules and regulations may indeed change. It is thus advisable to contact your airline directly for the most up-to-date information. 7. The power supply in Kenya and Tanzania is nominally 240VAC, 50hz. Variable voltage, spikes and sporadic, unexpected, unscheduled power cuts of varying duration can be expected. 8. Depending on the lunar cycle, Ramadan will fall between June 18th and July 17th, 2015. Please note that Ramadan is a month of fasting observed by Muslims throughout the world, during which time the followers of Islam should not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. In Zanzibar and other Muslim areas in Africa, it is important to note that there may be some limitations to services and disruptions to schedules during Ramadan. Generally our tours still operate effectively during this period and food is available to non-muslims throughout the day. It is important to display increased cultural sensitivity during Ramadan, particularly in Zanizbar. Please wear loose fitting clothes, that cover knees and shoulders, and try to avoid eating, drinking or smoking in public out of respect for those who can't at that time. 9. Looking to add to your experience? Check out our Theme Packs! Specially designed for travellers with unique interests, theme packs are optional add-ons to your G adventures trip that make your adventure more you-centric. Theme Packs must be booked prior to departure, please see details in our optional activities field and ask you sales CEO.

    Chief Experience Officers?

    On this journey, you will be accompanied on your trip by 2 Chief Experience Officers (CEO): a CEO driver and CEO guide. The Chief Experience Officer (CEO) will be the group manager and leader. He/she organizes the trip, and will be there to assist you when needed. He/she will take care of the small things so you can concentrate on enjoying your adventure. All of our CEOs in East Africa are experienced group leaders, with a broad knowledge base of the region’s history, cultures, and wildlife. Most of our leaders in the region are from East Africa, though it may be possible that you’ll have a leader from the Southern African region. All of our overland truck drivers are experienced in the routes travelled, and highly skilled in dealing with different terrains. Your CEO will organize and lead the meal preparation, but will prepare a duty schedule to ensuring fair and rotating participation from you and your group members in the meal preparation and dish washing duties. 


 In the Masai Mara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater to round out the team, along with your CEO, you will be accompanied by a local expert driver/guide. Your driver/guide is skilled and experienced driver and a certified safari guide, and is an integral part of the team. We also use local guides for some included activities where we think more specific knowledge will add to the enjoyment of the places we are visiting.

    Transport

    Overland Truck, Allrad-Safariwägen.

    Transport

    This trip is done a combination of vehicles - a larger 24 seat overland vehicle for most of the trip, and in private 6-7 seat 4x4 safari vehicles for the excursion into the Ngorongoro Crater. Each style of vehicles have their advantages - the overland truck allows the entire group to travel together, and sits higher, great for game viewing and to enjoy the scenic landscape. The smaller safari vehicles will be used when in the Ngorongoro Crater. With sliding windows and a large pop-up roofs, an open 360-degree view of area, great for game viewing. If there is a large group, 2-3 vehicles will be used, and the group will be split up. This style of travel is by no means luxurious, but the seats are comfortable and having our own private vehicles allow us the flexibility of making stops when needed, and to stay and watch that crouching lion prepare for an attack. Road conditions can run the full gamut from new to being in very poor condition. This style of travel is by no mean luxury, but it does allow us the flexibility of making stops when needed, and reaching some out-of-the way parts of East Africa where the traditional safari crowd would not dare to go. Here’s a quick look at the well-equipped G Adventures overland truck: - Storage for main luggage in a compartment under the seating area (accessed from the outside of the truck). Day packs can be stored at your feet - Onboard safety box(es) for valuables. - Front view windows - Large sliding windows, great for game viewing - Fully equipped retractable kitchen - Intercom between seating area and driver - Inverter for battery charging (South African plug - 220-240V) Please note that our trucks do not have on-board bathrooms. Nor do they have seats that recline as often reclining seats will break, and thus you will have some seats that recline and some that don't. This is not a physically demanding journey; however, travelling can be difficult, with long drives and poor road conditions at times. Please take note of the travel times and distances in the above itinerary, and consider that this is often on poor quality, bumpy roads. Despite this, most clients feel that the diversity of the African landscape, culture and wildlife are all well worth the experience.

    Solo Trip - Für alleine Reisende

    We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

    Über Unterkünfte

    Camping in East Africa is truly an adventure. You will be able to get off the beaten track to get a first-hand experience of the beautiful wilderness and nature. While camping, we stay at designated campsites in national parks and outside towns. Campsite facilities in southern Africa are generally good, but can be basic in certain places. There are generally small restaurants and/or bars, washing facilities and occasionally telephones available. The camps have flush toilets, and showers at some camps are outdoors, having simple reed enclosures for privacy. Additionally, warm water is available at most sites, but it is not guaranteed to always be warm when you take your shower; the warm water may be used up others who also use the camp. We usually set-up camp within close proximity to the toilet facilities, though occasionally to reach them you may to walk a short distance. All camping equipment (with the exception of your sleeping bag and pillow) is supplied, including camp mattresses, which are warm and comfortable. We supply dome tents and assembly/disassembly takes only 5 minutes. They are good quality, durable, industry-standard 2-person safari canvas tents. Please note that most adults will not be able to fully stand up inside the tents, though most travellers find these more than adequate, as they have a base area of approximately 4 square meters. These tents are regularly treated with a waterproofing agent, but under certain rainy conditions, the tent fabric may become saturated to the point where seepage or leakage may occur. All tents have built-in mesh insect netting on the windows and doors. We travel with our own portable camp chairs with a comfortable back-rest, and we utilize our own cooking equipment to provide the group good quality camp meals. In camping within the national parks and conservation areas, some camp sites are enclosed for keeping the resident wildlife out. Other camps are open to the natural environment – care must be taken, especially at night, when a torch/flashlight is recommended when walking around the camp area. At the Masai Mara, we will stay in a simple campsite with limited electricity. The facilities here are basic, though there are flushing toilets and hot water when the boiler is working. The campsite in Serengeti National Park is extremely basic, with no electricity, simple bathing facilities and squat toilets. While camping at the Ngorongoro Crater rim, there is very limited electricity, occasionally warm showers, and both seated and squat flushing toilets. The campsites for the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are open sites, where the wildlife can wander into the area, but they are safe. Despite the challenge that a few days “roughing it” may pose to some, the experience of being that close to nature, camping under the African stars, and seeing incredible wildlife at your tent door-step is not just gratifying but ultimately an experience of a lifetime.

    Tipps zur Anreise

    On arrival in Nairobi, an arrival transfer is not included. Please make your way to the joining hotel. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is about 20 km from downtown and your hotel. There are a variety of ways to get into the city. The dedicated airport bus takes about 40min at USD 5, however an airport taxi is recommended. This can be booked either inside the airport at an 'information desk' or outside of the terminal. The price is approximately USD 20. If you have a pre-booked transfer, please look for the driver, who will be holding a sign with the G Adventures logo on it. He will be in front of INFORMATION DESK just ouside the secured baggage retrieval area. At times there are taxi drivers who will want to get your business, so please be aware of them and look for our G Adventures representative. For security purposes, your name will not be on the G Adventures sign. As well, please do not tell the driver your name straight away, but rather ask the driver FIRST to tell you who they are meant to pick up. This will ensure that you go with the right driver. Please note that day 1 is an arrival day and no activities have been planned, though a brief departure meeting will be held in the hotel reception area in evening of day 1. Here you will meet other tour participants and receive information about general and specific aspects of the trip. Upon arrival to the hotel, look for a notice from your CEO with information regarding this group meeting. If you arrive late and miss the meeting, s/he will leave you a message detailing what time and where you should meet the next morning. The tour departs Nairobi in the morning of day 2.

    Was packe ich ein?

    You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. Your baggage should be clearly labelled and restricted to one soft compact suitcase, sports bag, or backpack, no larger than 30cm(height) x 30cm(width) x 60cm(length), maximum 15kg, plus a daypack. Luggage limits on airlines are strictly enforced, and due to limited vehicle capacity, the cost of transporting any luggage beyond these restrictions is the responsibility of the client. Please note, if you are travelling with a large amount of luggage and will be returning to Nairobi later in your trip, you may leave a portion of it at the start hotel, this is indeed possible as storage facilities are available. For our camping style tours you will need to provide your own sleeping bag, small pillow and sleeping sheet (if you would like). We provide the tent and the sleeping pads. It is important to pack clothes for warm days and cool evenings, as well as a warm jacket for early morning game drives. Light, quick-drying, practical clothes are advisable for this safari trip. A set of smart casual clothes is also advisable for your time in Nairobi and Arusha.

  • 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!
