Hi Danie. Can you tell us about yourself please?
I’m an outdoor adventure guide. I moved here to The Green Kalahari to be able to wake up every morning to all this; for my family to live in nature like we’re supposed to. The biggest city is Upington, about 80 miles away from us. The border to Namibia is about 43 miles north. And we’ve got Augrabies Falls National Park right on our doorstep.
What is The Green Kalahari?
This is the vein of life that runs through the desert, where South Africa’s longest river meets the Kalahari, with beautiful vineyards and trees, beyond, which it’s desert. There’s scenery and birdlife, fishing and canoeing, mountain biking and hiking. The Northern Cape is the biggest province in South Africa and probably the least explored, but they say that once you’ve got the red sand under your toenails you’ll always come back.
