Born and raised in Germany, still holding a German passport.
Moved to Switzerland 20 years ago.
Lost my heart to the African bush in 1990.
Adopted a girl from Ethiopia last year.

It's not only the weather that makes Africa the warmest continent of all

Conservation is not an option.
It's imperative.

Leave KNP alone. Go build a hotel someplace else. Reserves are for the preservation of wildlife.

Proudly Bavarian.

Some people will tell you it’s a part of Germany.
But I can tell you: We are different.
Anyway, I once wrote: “Home is where it hurts if you have to leave.”
If I’m right, then I’m from somewhere in Southern Africa.

Hi,

I am German, but my heart belongs to South Africa.

I just read through the thread and thought how wonderful it is that all these people from all around the world share this love for South Africa.
