Safari and Wildlife

Today, I still remember my first wildlife safari in Africa in 2009 and my first ever encounter with a majestic African elephant. I fell in love with the African bush and since then, I went on numerous safaris in various African countries, like South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Madagascar, Mozambique, and eSwatini. I encourage everyone to go on a safari trip to Africa at least once in their life to experience Africa's magical wildlife in their natural habitat! 

Spending quality time in the African bush gives me that special feeling. In Africa, I feel somehow more grounded and connected to nature, the people, and myself. It forces you to be in the moment because - in the bush - you don't know what the next minute will bring. Being so close to nature makes me feel alive and free. As a wildlife enthusiast and wildlife photographer I keep visiting Africa; for its nature, the people, and my love for our beautiful - and sadly endangered - wildlife! Since 2021 I'm very blessed to be an FGASA-certified apprentice field guide (or safari guide), which is of great value when taking people on a (photo) safari to Africa.

In this wildlife safari category, I share my Africa travel experiences, safari itineraries, wildlife viewing tips, what to expect on game drives in Africa, the best places to visit for safari, and how we can contribute to wildlife conservation or how to become a safari guide in Africa.
