When Patrick Sinclair sits on the plane to South Africa in June 2015, he has no idea that his life is about to change fundamentally. He is an entrepreneur and lecturer – and actually happy in his home town Cologne. Four years later, he emigrates to Cape Town. Africa has never left him.
Three great adventure journeys from Cape Town to Zanzibar
“The spectacles of nature left me speechless, the wilderness and the safaris breathless. The vastness of Africa made me feel at peace and the people made me feel radiant in my heart.
