The tropical rains leave the dunes in Mauritius’ Black River Gorges National Park wet and accentuate its seven coloured earth magnificently. Miraculously the fine sand doesn’t erode despite the regular intense downpours.

If you ask me which city I like most after all my travels, I answer: Cape Town.
Its beautiful scenery nestled between mountains gently dropping into the sea and endless white beaches its unbeatable.
After kicking back for a month or so in Cape Town it’s time to start planning for our trip to one of my favorite places if not my number one Kruger National Park. Spending time in Cape Town is most pleasant, after all there is more than enough to do and see to keep busy. Continue reading “Cape Town – Most beautiful City Of The World”
Friends of wildlife know, they have to rise early to spot the most dramatic scenes which nature can provide.
On a common morning in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park we couldn’t believe what we saw!
We were sitting in the bird hide at Mata-Mata rest camp in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park on the Namibian border at an early hour when only the hopeful wildlife lovers rise from their warm and cozy beds. Hoping for exciting animal sightings with a flask of coffee next to us, enduring sturdily the hard wooden bench and squinting through the dark trying to spot the first visitors at the waterhole.Continue reading “Early Morning In Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa”
After a suffocating 40 degree heat for the past week it was with much relief to see this storm approaching. Little did we know how frightening and dangerous such storms can get.

Unter einem Baum zu zelten ist unter diesen Umständen nicht der geeignetste Ort. Deshalb rannten wir rasch zum Waschraum, von wo wir das über uns hinwegziehendes Donnerwetter in Sicherheit beobachten konnten.
Wir fanden Linderung von der Hitze für eine Weile, der Regen blieb jedoch weitgehend aus.

Oranges Licht des Sonnenuntergangs erscheint gefangen in einer herannahenden, drohenden Gewitterwolke und kontrastiert mit dem unschuldigen Blau des klaren Himmels von bevor.
Best place to visit for Cheetah and Lion sightings is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park. A game park full of wildlife in the semi-desert of South Africa and Botswana (formerly called Kalahari Gemsbok National Park), souring hot and unforgivably harsh.
Why do I sit in a car when its 40+ degrees with no shade to speak of for hours on end?!
We captured South Africa’s Augrabies Falls and the beautiful wildlife of the surrounding National Park in this video.
