Wüstentümmler? What’s this? Who is this? This is someone who romps in the desert! In this case, in the magnificent coastal desert Namib. And that also makes it clear where the journey is going: into fascinating Namibia!
Why Namibia? A petite woman has a very large share in this. At some point in December, a white Land Rover drove to the yard of Wunderlich GmbH. A Land Rover that could be seen to have traveled the world beyond doubt, none to the boulevards. The door opens and out, no, not a typical mid-aged Globetrotter á la Crocodile Dundee with a tropical helmet, but a petite, tasteful woman in a dark costume, high shoes, handbag, but above all with a winning smile on the face and a lot of positive charisma.
It was Sabine Kastner, founder and CEO of AfrikaScout. She is a specialist for traveling in Africa. From this encounter, which started with a friendly conversation, the idea arose to plan together a two-week, beautiful trip through Namibia. And in this conversation, in which the words and ideas flew back and forth, the working title on the subject of the journey was also written: The Desert Whisperer.
This is the story of our next adventure. The working title remained.
The next adventure too
Sven Cremer. Sven is responsible for Wunderlich's social media channels and videos. He drives, like most of us passionately like motorcycle. He drives everything: As a team member in our Wunderlich MOTORSPORT long-distance team our S 1000 RR, in photos also like GS or R nineT.
Sven will also drive the Wüstentümmler Tour for us. Of course, on a specially equipped by us BMW R 1250 GS.
Gavin is still part of the party , experienced tour guide for Namibia and two other BMW endurists. Sabine, who, as is her style, has perfectly prepared the entire tour, will accompany the trip with Cordi in the SUV.
The adventure of our Wüstentümmler will start on May 3, 2019. He will return on May 16.
#WSTNTMMLR – the hashtag for WÜSTENTÜMMLER
Sven will take us virtually on his extraordinary journey, which Sabine Kastner and her team from AfrikaScout through Namibia have perfectly organized. So we have the opportunity to directly share his adventures, his encounters with people, the great landscape and the unique light and the exotic wildlife of Namibia. You can follow him on Facebook, Instagram, in his blog and on the website www.wunderlich-fernweh.de. He will report daily.
Here we have put together all the links for you:
Wunderlich components for the Wüstentümmler R 1250 GS
Of course, we thought about which equipment makes sense for the R 1250 GS and we have put together a selection for you.
