Andrew Evans, National Geographic Traveler magazine’s “Digital Nomad,” has embarked on an adventure to explore Tanzania. For the next four weeks, Evans will tweet, blog, vlog and “Instagram” on NationalGeographic.com’s Digital Nomad blog, his Twitter feed @WheresAndrew and his Where’s Andrew Facebook page.
Evans plans to dive the Indian Ocean coral reefs of Zanzibar island; explore Tanzania’s largest national park, Ruaha; and visit the chimpanzees of Gombe Stream National Park, where Jane Goodall performed her groundbreaking research on primates for National Geographic. Also on the itinerary are the ancient markets of Zanzibar; a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa; and a visit to Katavi, one of the least-accessible regions of Tanzania.
“National Geographic is approaching its 125th anniversary in January, and it’s exciting to see how far travel has come in that time. With the help of social media, people all across the world can follow Andrew from the coral reefs of Zanzibar to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro,” says Keith Bellows, National Geographic Traveler magazine editor in chief.
