Sharing his view on wildlife conservation. We talk to an Anti-Poaching Unit Manager about why he is willing to go to war to keep Rhinos and wildlife safe from harm.
Working on the front-line of wildlife conservation, the manager of the K9 anti-poaching unit has a massive responsibility. Better than anyone he's aware of the importance of having a great team, working together with the local communities and other reserves. Immediately after we had this conversation he had to run off and assisted in the successful arrest of 4(!) poachers in a nearby area. His dedication towards saving this planet's wildlife is admirable and his motivation very personal. When we want future generations to experience true adventure and roam with animals in freedom, we need to keep on taking action. We need to keep fighting!

In September 2017, I spent 1 week alone in a villa in Greece. Just me, gathering my thoughts and putting them on paper.
When I spoke to my dear friend, Annelies a few weeks ago about creating a Safari Experience for women, I remembered this passage, I wrote in my notebook sitting in the middle of nowhere in Greece;
"What intrigues me the last few days is how much I enjoy people. Connecting to people. Where I've always felt more connected to the natural world and its clear structure, lack of hidden agendas, what you see is what you get and honest, authenticity. People are messy, difficult, sneaky and often dishonest. They're also fun, crazy, loving, caring partners that can inspire and make waves. What good would all these positive traits be when they cannot be put to use. Light does not exist without darkness. I sometimes struggle with darkness, and can get totally overwhelmed by its intensity. Shy away from it, hide it.
