Hi, my name is Richi Wagner and I am your guide on our expedition together. On most of our trips, you sit behind the wheel of a four-wheel drive yourself, and you have a big influence on which route we drive.
As your experienced guide, I set out the course, but as a participant you have the opportunity to characterize the course if there are special experiences you would like to bring home in your luggage.
We have a goal, but we decide for ourselves the way to do it. This is the way I prefer to cross through the African bush.
My motto is: This is not a holiday… it’s an adventure. do you want to come along?
I have lived and worked in South Africa from 1984 to 1995 and have since returned to the Africa I love, a couple of times every year. In 2010, I trained as a field guide – or ranger – to be best dressed to share my love for the bush with you.
I have a lot of experience traveling in the bush and in 2001 I drove in a Landrover from Cape Town all the way to Copenhagen. It sharpened even more my sense of wandering in the magnificent nature full of surprises and challenges.
Both in the encounter with the wild animals and the unpredictable weather phenomena.
On our expedition, you will experience a truly unique bond with nature when a bunch of elephants or buffaloes stop us for a while, because they have the first right to cross the “road” we ride.
You will fall asleep in the tent to the sound of the roar of the lions in the distance after a long eventful day in the bush. It’s something everyone deserves to experience at least once in their lives.
The feeling of freedom and the fact that you can do much more than you thought when a challenge is resolved cannot be described in words, but must be experienced on your own body. The intense feeling of being present in the moment as life in the bush unfolds.
Hanne Lunah Lund says so about our 2019 trip:
”Road trip through Botswana with Richis Africa is a truly unique experience. Lots of animals, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, exciting camp sites and not least Richi’s vast knowledge of Africa.”
I look forward to accompanying you on one of our expeditions.
