About

I’m Gesa. Born in Germany, I left my roots to find my wings, traveling the globe until I fell in love with the African wilderness and trained to become a safari guide.

Today, I earn my living as a writer in Germany, but whenever I get the chance I will be out there – traveling all over Africa together with boyfriend Frank and Land Rover ELLIE, the Defender. As a guiding couple Frank and I host a few selected safaris each year for private groups and families, as well as some special safari-retreats for women only that are very close to my heart. Click here to find out more about our safaris. 

I believe in a heart-based life. I write to breathe, to make sense of the world around me. This blog is my manifested desire to write more frequently about ideas I’m passionate about and, if I can,  to inspire you to re-establish a connection with the Natural World – not only in Africa but wherever you feel at home.

Find out more about me on my personal website.
