Sven, who manages the social media channels and events at Wunderlich, is a versatile person and motorcyclist. He is curious, attentive, always enthusiastic, authentic and adventurous. Just the man for our tour project in Namibia. One of the Wunderlich lives, so there was no need for persuasion. He took the job and could hardly hide his enthusiasm. Many of you may have followed his blog in May 2019 at https://www.wunderlich-fernweh.de/?lang=en and digitally accompanied him, his travel companions and the tour guide Gavin. On his tour of the southwest African country, he was not only able to experience the impressive landscape and wildlife, but also had many encounters with the local people, of whom he still reports.
As part of the trip, the team shot almost 48 hours of footage and we have now decided to cut a film series for you and publish two episodes every week on our YouTube channel “Wunderlich GmbH” and on our social media channels.
03. May – 16. May 2019
I – the Wüstentümmler – will start my Namibia tour on a specially equipped by Wunderlich BMW R 1250 GS. On my journey, I take you with me and tell you daily in my travel blog of my thoughts, feelings, encounters and the tour itself. You can look forward to many videos, pictures and notes, which I collect for you and then publish. Maybe my blog will inspire you for your own trip to Africa.
Wüstentümmler? What’s this? Who is this? This is someone who romps in the desert! In this case, in the magnificent coastal desert Namib. And that also makes it clear where the journey is going: into fascinating Namibia!
Why Namibia? A petite woman has a very large share in this. At some point in December, a white Land Rover drove to the yard of Wunderlich GmbH. A Land Rover that could be seen to have traveled the world beyond doubt, none to the boulevards. The door opens and out, no, not a typical mid-aged Globetrotter á la Crocodile Dundee with a tropical helmet, but a petite, tasteful woman in a dark costume, high shoes, handbag, but above all with a winning smile on the face and a lot of positive charisma.
It was Sabine Kastner, founder and CEO of AfrikaScout. She is a specialist for traveling in Africa. From this encounter, which started with a friendly conversation, the idea arose to plan together a two-week, beautiful trip through Namibia. And in this conversation, in which the words and ideas flew back and forth, the working title on the subject of the journey was also written: The Desert Whisperer.
This is the story of our next adventure. The working title remained.
#WSTNTMMLR – the hashtag for WÜSTENTÜMMLER
I will take you all on a virtual journey that Sabine Kastner and her team from AfrikaSCOUT through Namibia have perfectly organized. You will have the opportunity to share and experience my adventures, my encounters with people, the magnificent scenery, and the unique light and exotic wildlife of Namibia. Follow me and my trip on my travel blog – www.wunderlich-fernweh.de, on Facebook – @wunderlichaction or on Instagram – wunderlich_gmbh. I will report you daily.
