My Safari Life. 

The Book Trip!


Breakfast with Elephants

– the book trip!


Although my book is only in German for now, you can still participate in the adventure of a lifetime, as I will take a selected few to all the special places I visited during my training as safari-guide in Southern Africa! Let’s get up early before the sun rises and walk barefoot through the Savannah! Let’s sit together around a campfire and tell each others stories, play guitar and listen to the lions roaring at night! This is a once-in-a-lifetime-trip that you will never forget!
