What started out of as a commitment to family to Climb Kilimanjaro quickly turned into a passion for high peaks and adventure travel around the world. And so Nomadic Adventures was born out of the desire to offer these amazing experiences with others around the world. Since then, Nomadic Adventures has grown and now includes an array of unusual destinations from South America to Tibet and Nepal, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, Vietnam to Morocco. We have spent time with the mountain gorilla of Rwanda, trekked to the North Face of Everest, visited the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, engaged in cultural dances with the Nepalese and witnessed the migration of the wildebeest from Tanzania to Kenya. And our journeys continue so that we may gain first hand experience or our areas
