About us


Hi, thanks for stopping by! We are the Scholtz family – Nico, Riana and the boys (8 and 6). We believe that traveling as a family is the best form of schooling, which is why we jump at every opportunity that arises to do it. Whether it is for Nico’s work as consulting geologist, for mountaineering or for running trails in new and beautiful far-off places, we are always keen to get rolling.

When not traveling we love spending our days in our tiny castle near Brandberg in beautiful Damaraland. It is our desire and our goal to help preserve our Wilderness, a small fraction of earth representative of all wild places and wild hearts, by raising awareness first within our own home. Hopefully, the ripples will also reach further and wider as we grow and learn, meet new people and experience new places. 

We would love to hear from you, so drop us a line or head over to our Instagram page!
