Mauritius: Fünf Gründe Diese Insel Zu Lieben Oder … Zu Hassen

Unsere ehrliche Meinung zu Mauritius: Wo hat die Insel uns positiv überrascht und was hat uns enttäuscht. Die zusätzliche Information, das Salz in der Suppe aller fast ausschliesslich positiven Reiseberichte.

Die unverblümte Wahrheit über die Traumferien-Destination Mauritius, ohne Blatt vor dem Mund, für Reisende die mehr wissen wollen als in den Tourismus-Broschüren steht.

Deutsch  |  English   Ehrlich? Es ist nicht alles paradiesisch, aber vieles davon schon. Bevor unserer Abreise nach Mauritius recherchierten wir auf diversen Reiseblogs, welche uns fast unisono den Eindruck vermittelten, dass Mauritius so paradiesisch schön ist, wie die Bilder in Reiseprospekten versprechen. Es ist nicht ganz so, aber ich kehrte seither trotzdem bereits zweimal zurück.

Praslin, Seychelles – Destination Guide

I sat on my haunches and pointed my camera to the Aldabra giant tortoise, who was walking towards me, underestimating the speed of these ancient reptiles. Another unforgettable wildlife encounter on our travels, this time in Praslin, Seychelles, on a day tour to Curieuse Marine National Park.

On our travels in the Seychelles we found Praslin, an island not only with the most beautiful beaches, but also with UNESCO World Heritage Site Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve and the Curieuse Marine National Park close by. An unique place for nature enthusiasts to explore endemic animals and plants above and under water. Continue reading “Praslin, Seychelles – Destination Guide”

‘Big Sky’ is normally used as a term describing the sky over the vast wide empty space in Montana, United States. As we travelled the Karoo in South Africa this term crossed my mind as well, all the while as I was admiring the arid landscape which stretched on endlessly.

Mit ‘Big Skies’ ist normalerweise der sich unendlich bis zum Horizont erstreckende Himmel über Montana in den USA gemeint. Diese Beschreibung passt jedoch auch ganz gut für die Karoo in Südafrika, ging mir durch den Kopf, während ich bei unserer Durchreise die unendlichen Weiten der ariden Landschaft bewunderte.

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.

Lion Escape And Black Eagles

Our journey around the National Parks in the Karoo of South Africa brought us to the semi-desert of the Karoo National Park, a rough place of stunning beauty, full of splendid African wildlife. We camped out and battled the bitterly cold nights and the sizzling heat in the day.

We encountered black eagles at eye level, various antelopes and the endangered Cape Mountain Zebra, all in the stunningly beautiful surroundings of the Nuweveld Mountains. Red cliffs and mountain peaks, which hide treasures of the past before dinosaurs populated the earth surface.

The last National Park on our trip through the Karoo lies in the Nuweveld Mountains north of Beaufort Wes. The park became most famous because of a troublesome Lion named Spook, who managed to escape twice from the national park boundaries and brought the surrounding farms into a state of alarm. A large male lion is not to be taken lightly.

Camdeboo – The Green Valley In The Great Thirstland

We camped in the “Green Valley” in the “Great Thirst Land” or if used the actually better known terms in the original language Khoi-khoi of the Bushmen, it is “Camdeboo” in the “Karoo”.

Best known is the Valley Of Desolation within the Camdeboo National Park.

The National Park encircles entirely the Old Cape Dutch town of Graaf-Reinet.

I had been here in Camdeboo National Park, when my travels in South Africa started four years ago. This nature reserve struck me already then as a place of exceptional beauty with an extraordinary setting, encircling the historical town of Graaf-Reinet.

Encounter With Whale Mum And Baby

Walking over the Dunes along the beach at De Mond Nature Reserve in South Africa, we spotted a Southern right whale mum with her calf.

We’d hiked about half of the seven-kilometer trail, which led mainly through the dunes of De Mond Nature Reserve before arriving at the beach with the wind pumping and the sun shining mercilessly on our heads. Continue reading “Encounter With Whale Mum And Baby”
