This is us – the Carstens Family!

Heiko and I met soon after I relocated to The Netherlands from the UK. We discovered a shared love of the African wilderness and married on safari in Tanzania. Then along came our daughters, Rebekka and Lea.

Travel Journals

This website began it’s existence as a place to record and share my travel journals from our amazing travel and safari adventures in India, East Africa and Southern Africa. Then all went quiet when I became pregnant with Rebekka. The journals from our last few trips are still in paper form waiting to go online (soon)!

Stay updated with Instagram

Now our travels and adventures are much closer to home, but they are adventures all the same. The best way to follow along is on Instagram.

A return to Africa

East Africa is calling, and one day we will return. For now, we are patiently waiting with hopes and dreams of travels to our favourite far away places as a family, where we can share our love of the wilderness with our daughters!

Stay a while!

Get yourself comfy with a cuppa tea and have a browse of our journals and photos! I hope you enjoy them!
