Personalized Adventure Travel

If generic vacations are about staying in tourist areas, adventure travel is all about having new experiences, such as the legendary Great Migration. However, organizing these kinds of trips when you’re not familiar with the territory can be complicated, especially with international travel. MSN.com warned their readers, “Finding the best off-the-beaten path destinations and what to do once you get there requires time and research.”

When traveling with Gondwana, we aim to take the stress out of trip planning. Every aspect of our tours are hand-selected by our team to provide the best experience for our guests. When you consider that the tour prices save you time, money and effort on trip planning, it adds even more value.

The Active Times says that adventure travelers, “…don’t want to feel like regular tourists; they want to know how locals live and be like them for a while.” Facilitating this process is something that we’re passionate about at Gondwana.
