“Trust Locally Travel Safely”

From Here 2 Timbuktu‘s Nomads Travel Network

We are excited to announce that after a decade of operating journeys across the Sahara and West Africa we are expanding eastwards, to new horizons in Arabia, Persia, Anatolia and back to Europe.

With our move eastwards we are shifting focus from operating ourselves to building a nomads’ network to connect travellers to our community of operators, guides, camps and local experts in an online and on-the-road membership network called CAMPFIRE. 

Campfire is a platform for nomads to meet, greet, connect and tell stories – a sort of nomads’ AirB&B for roads less travelled.

We are also developing a new website to go alongside Campfire. You can preview Campfire here: http://campfire.fromhere2timbuktu.comIt’s work in progress but membership of Campfire is free, so why not try it out and create an account.

To get full access and full benefits of Campfire there is a €95 annual subscription fee.

For anyone joining Campfire as an annual subscriber before our launch in September 2018 we are offering two year’s subscription for the price of one.

Join Campfire – Trust Locally Travel Safely – and you’ll find a camel who will guide you to your Timbuktu!

To launch Campfire we are organising self-drive journeys to Timbuktu in January and February 2018 and on our signature trip, Sahara Overland. We will have a few places for passengers.

Bismillah! Au mwebeni so! Anichié! Bienvenue! Welcome!

Born in Zimbabwe, raised in England, Africa has always welcomed me home. I want to repay Africa’s warm hospitality to me by sharing some of my highlights from a lifetime of travel with you.

We will get you into the African community’s beating heart, showing you a positive, diverse and vibrant continent with original, inspiring and resilient people. 

Come with us on a journey of a lifetime, discover your nomadic shadow stretching back over Saharan sands and Africa beyond.
