Namibia is color.
I have never before visited a place that offers such a variety of landscapes and terrains.
The country and its inhabitants fight every day for survival. Namibia has always been a dry place, however in recent history climate change and humanity’s greed has damaged this beautiful oasis.
The country is attempting to protect species that are only found in this part of the world. However, local authorities report daily about animal cruelty and exploitation.
The fact is that the world used to be covered by different flora & fauna. We have single-handedly destroyed 99.9% of the species that have inhabited this earth.
The story is tragic, but I hope that others will feel the same way about it as I do. Ready to expose its beauties and remind people where we originally came from.

Yasmin’s biggest passion in life is to travel. “We have to explore things that are different from where we come from. Different from what we are used to and what is familiar. The only way that we can behave humane and respectful towards others is to try and see the world from their point of view. It will broaden our horizon in infinite ways.”
