The Idea behind the book

Andrea a pharmacist by profession and Africa lover remembered, that when she was a child to collect sticker photos. Therefore once on safari through the bush she came up with the idea to design a book, where you can straight away stick photos of animals you spot in the wild into it. The idea was translated into the “MY SAFAY DIARY”


Project, Art Editor, Production & Design

Herbert a business advisor from Germany living in South Africa is known for his skills at bringing ideas to its novice’s levels. He has been involved in many tourism projects in Africa. Fascinated by the sounds of the bush he uses every opportunity "to go bush" which term has several meanings but all connect with the supposed wildness of the bush. For him it can mean to revert to a feral nature or to "go native". He is excited to leave normal surroundings and live rough, with connotations of cutting off communication with the outside world.

The Photographers'

Udo a retired IT professional visits Africa since the early 1990’s. His favourite place to be when away from home is either Chobe National Park Botswana, Hluhluwe/Umfolozi game  reserve in Kwa Zulu Natal or the Kruger National Park, because he enjoys only the best game viewing experience.

Daniel a student of sports journalism got to know the bush from a young age. In 2008 we travelled together through the Okavango starting in Maun and coming out in Kasane at the Chobe river. A exciting experience with lots of fun and encounters with wild animals.

Ralf is a specialist nurse working in intensive care and anaesthesia in a hospital in Germany. He is the author of the book ECG diagnostic, which is also available on CD. He further operates a totally amazing website for ECG diagnosis. However when ever time allows for recreation he tours Africa especially the bush where he enjoys to take pictures from the African landscape and wild animals.

Out of the thousands of pictures shot on safari the team had a difficult task to select and choose the best pictures for the “My Safari Diary”. I’m thanking all who contributed in one way or the other for providing me the opportunity to write and put this entertaining and educational book together.
