Ten years ago during some rather drab emotional times, while I was sitting in a suit and tie in an office in Joburg, I would spend hours daydreaming about wilderness areas of Africa. I’d never been to Namibia’s northwest, but for some reason, images of elephants walking across vast desert landscapes would pop into my head while I was in the middle of supposedly important business meetings. I’ve since read a lot about the impact of our wild ancestry and its effect on modern day people…and I’m convinced that a place like Kunene in Namibia holds a potent grip on my unconscious. So when I travelled there in April this year, it was as if all those dreams had come to life. Read my article in Getaway on this heart-achingly beautiful wilderness which is truly wild, and which is a “landscape of the soul.”
