Wildlife Experiences

Encounters with wild animals are always intense. They touch me deep inside and remain in my memory for a lifetime. The possibilities for observing wild animals therefore usually determine my travel destination. Whales, sharks, sea lions and penguins are my clear favourites. On this page you will find an overview of my articles, reports, photo and travel tips for wildlife encounters.
