Gesa Neitzel, the face behind WONDERFUL WILD Africa travel blog, always had a longing to explore the world and walk her own path – so she decided she had no time to loose and quit her TV-job to get out there. She started her first Blog in 2012 as a way of sharing her travels with her friends. Soon, more and more people fell in love with her way of telling stories. The feedback readers leave the most is this:

“You speak from my heart.”

After she had seen a fair amount of the world – always working for room and board along the way – she found something worth her while: On a trip around South Africa she fell in love with the African Wilderness and decided to change her life completely and train as a Safari Guide in South Africa and Botswana in 2015. She is now a qualified Field Guide Level 1 and Back-up Trails Guide, currently working towards her Lead Trails Guide qualification. Her book about this adventure was released in Germany on September 9th. On December 1st, it became a bestseller.
