Safari of Emanuele and Anastasia

Africa: suddenly paradise

Three adjectives for Your Journey :

Authentic, profound, contemplative.

The biggest thrill :

We’re passionate about riding and, when we found out that in the Okavango Delta it’s possible to go horse riding, we didn’t think about it twice. Galloping next to the giraffes was an emotion that we can’t describe!

A special sighting :

Two very elegant young cheetah at Chitabe, in the Okavango Delta.

A breathtaking view :

The landscapes of Wolwedans, in the Namib Desert, at sunset. Sceneries always different and equally wonderful, dunes and mountains with the most beautiful palette of red shades ever seen.

The greatest teaching :

Being immersed in such a perfect nature reminded us of the unicity and the extraordinary beauty of our planet, and that we all should be committed to its conservation, for us and for the future generations.

A fear that you passed :

Surrendering to unconsciousness.

A small thing :

The smell of Africa. You can’t describe it, it gets inside you and it never leaves.

Your guide :

George, our guide at Kwetsani, for making us realize the importance of respecting each and every creature.

One thing I do again :


Field favorite and why :

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge: the lodge is awesome, the service just impeccable and the location is breathtaking. In front of so much beauty, of that impressive silence, we felt incredibly small.

Africa : before and after the trip :

Before a distant continent still to be discovered, after a place that we struggled to leave and remained in our hearts.
