lands of earth-old tales




  Considering that Africa is thought to be our cradle, this journey leads through the first landscapes humans ever laid eyes on – mystical soil that spans from the oldest desert in the world to the enormous wetlands of the Okavango Delta, across lush mountain ranges to turquoise coastlines.

glimpse: MOON MAGNET | I’ve heard the designation “Moon Landscape” a couple of times over the years, wondering who on earth would really know what qualifies as such. Anyways, for lack of having seen the original, I took whoever’s word for it and presumed that this little known natural delight outside Swakopmund in Namibia somewhat resembles the surface of our satellite. One thing is for certain:  Upon looking at it from the view point, the lunar landscape drew us into its otherworldly depths just like the moon’s tidal force persuades the oceans, and the gravity was of a magnitude that made us wander off without even locking the car.


Maun, Okavango Delta / Botswana   Elephants are a rare sight in these regions of the delta at this time of the year. The bull was as surprised to see us as we were. A moment later we ducked, hoping it wouldn't charge at us - there is simply no escape plan with a Mokoro. And so the giant waged his options.
