It is possible to travel freely in Africa! Five live in complete freedom

Originally, free travel to Africa was the preserve of some adventurous backpackers. Today, it is possible to go through the tour operator individually without any risk. There are five without bonds!

Basically, it was impossible to go to Africa, Asia or Latin America without joining a group. Only a few adventurous backpackers attempted the adventurous endeavor of independence. Then travel became more democratic, individuality became its companion. We want to travel, but at our own pace. Go wherever you please. Five people live on African soil.

In Botswana, sleeping on the roof is free

Botswana is one of those countries that is so expensive that it seems inaccessible. Nomad Adventure offers to discover it in freedom with a 4X4 equipped with a tent on the roof. In the program, Savuti, Chobe, Moremi and of course the Okavango Delta. After a brief introduction to driving on the track, you are ready to embark alone on the wild tracks of Botswana.

The world’s oldest desert is found in Namibia, just south of the African continent. This sparsely populated country has a true collection of deserts, the most famous of which is Namib, separated by its huge hills.

It allows you to have a charming address in the heart of the reservoir or desert. Sometimes note a selection of hidden addresses, some activities such as “rhino tracking” (kayak tracking) or kayaking in an ocean populated by wild sea lions.
