My Dear Nanda family,

I wanted to reach out personally today to you, our valued Nanda family, to address the ever evolving COVID-19 situation. As I’m sure is the case for you, your families and your community, things are ever evolving and we are all responding in as timely a manner as possible as updates are made available. Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by the pandemic.

Presently, the impact to Nanda Journeys’ global destinations is minimal. Our first scheduled travel group of the year is set for May 10, 2020. We currently plan to proceed with all 2020 Nanda Journeys, but we will, of course, continue to monitor the global situation carefully and postpone programs as needed. We will, wherever possible, postpone our programs to keep program cancellations to a minimum.

While we understand that there are many unknowns and questions about the viability of travel, my team and I remain confident and hopeful that with swift action by global governments now, the virus can be contained and managed quickly.

Once the current situation settles, international travel will be a key contributor to the recovery of the global economy. Nanda Journeys remains committed to delivering safe and transformative journeys for our guests in the coming months.

We sincerely appreciate your continued interest in our programs and thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this unprecedented time together. We have suspended all program invitations for the time being and will resume when it makes sense to encourage travel again. 

For immediate questions, please call 888-747-7501 or email us at

Dominic, Debra, Marcia and I remain 100% dedicated to you and our global partners and look forward to staying in touch. We are a remote team already well-equipped to work remotely and safely from our own homes.

Periodic updates will be posted online here as warranted. Those registered on specific programs will be contacted directly as travel dates approach.

Globally yours,

Nicola Balmain
