AFRICA
1996

"The African series was inspired by her recent voyages to Kenya and Tanzania. Claudia says: "My first trip to East Africa was one of the most significant moments in my life".

Watching wildlife films on TV may give you an idea of what to expect when you visit Africa for the first time, but nothing prepares you for the sights, sounds and smells of the savannas.

The experience in these African countries went beyond my wildest expectations. Every minute of every hour was a treasure to be carefully savored and I recall, in vivid detail, the excitement of secing my lion in the region of the Mara River, the first encounter with Elephants in Samburu and the almost telepathic rapport with Maria, a nomad of the tribe of the Masai.

Africa can change on´s life. The endless spaces of the savannas, the huge skies where everything happens, also open spaces within oneself, spaces where unimaginable memories and experiences begin to grow.

Many African countries learned thet the preservation of wildlife is the key to their own survival, through ecological tourism. African wildlife is a precious heritage for the world and to ensure its survival is the responsibility of all.

My dream is to stimulate more and more people to have a closer contact with the beauty of wildlife, to love and protect nature everywhere.
