Our Philosophy 

Our story: A word from our founder Nicola

I founded Nanda Journeys as I have long yearned to make a difference in the lives of others. I am an avid traveler who has been working in the travel industry for over 25 years, both in the US & UK. I have visited 45 countries and having conquered 6 of the 7 glorious continents (once all in the same year!) Meeting people in their daily environment has opened up a world of friendships and memories for me -  I want to share my experiences with others and facilitate creating unique experiences for them.

At Nanda Journeys, we create travel programs for the diverse, adventurous explorer united in a desire: to not only experience a destination, but to truly experience a culture and connect with its people, visiting unexplored, off-the-beaten path destinations, that provide an opportunity to give back, and make a meaningful difference in the communities they visit.  

So why Nanda Journeys? Nanda is a Sanskrit word that means joy and happiness. This seemed to aptly fit what I was striving to achieve in my new business for both myself, my team and of course our valued guests. 

Welcome to the Nanda Family, we can't wait to journey the world with you!

Globally yours,

Nicola Balmain
