Tour 10: Family Holidays in a Nomadic Camp
This offer is not one of the usual tours.
In fact, it's not a "tour" at all, but a stationary holiday location
in the camp of a family of nomads.
This is perfect for families with children, because it won't tire
them with eating endless stretches of road.
To make communication with the nomads easier, a multilingual contact
person will always be around. Food is also available, but you can
of course also cook yourself, if you so desire.
Your stationary yurt will serve as a basis for excursions to various
interesting places nearby. On other days, you can watch how the
nomads work with their animals, or even help a bit here and there.
Please ask us for your preferred time period!
