Detlev spent many years living and working as a tour guide and safari operator in Namibia. Namibia – dust, stars and tranquillity; Namibia – part old, mystical Africa, part modern world, merged ... weiterlesentogether yet distinctly separate. Along with his friend and total outdoor rookie Stefan and two Mountain Damara, Collin !Uiseb and Jonny B Good (‘Brandberg Bushmen’), whom they befriend, they set off on a trekking expedition on the Brandberg, an isolated, 600-square-kilometre massif at the heart of the oldest desert in the world, the Namib. On this safari to the mountain off the beaten track, they re-live tales of a bygone era. Detlev transports the reader into a completely different world, where the European mind-set and perceptions are completely out of place. Namibia has many African tribes with their own cultures and language, including its white population, who also see themselves as Africans, of course. Namibia is a desert country yet home to 6,000 different plant species – even more than in Europe! Moreover, Namibia boasts the full spectrum of Africa’s wild animals, which roam around freely. With its infinite deserts, dense savannah and thick jungle, Namibia is a country where adventures are born. This book is anything but a cushy farm holiday far from the reality of Africa! It also includes colour pictures.
