PETRA VANDECASTEELE

Owner & Africa Travel Expert

Belgian from Bruges

After taking part in a 4-year overland expedition from Brussels to Cape Town and zig-zagging East & Southern Africa off the beaten track, there was simply no turning back to conventional urban living. I choose to homeschool my children to allow us the freedom to be fully mobile and travel regularly to explore extraordinary places and projects and meet fascinating people. 

Spending quality time with my family and friends, connecting with the world around me, and of course, travel, are key to my happiness.

I love inspiring others by sharing my experiences and designing immersive adventures in the wilderness.

And, I believe that mindful travel in nature connects people with the wilderness and the wild child within themselves.

AMBER VAN GOOL

Innovation Expert & Travel Consultant

Belgian from Antwerp

After a one-month adventure with my family organised by Kids of Nature, I became fascinated by the natural world, mindfulness and family travel. I realized how important well-coordinated family travel is for bonding with each other, but also with oneself. I believe that nature is the most beautiful catalyst ever for making this happen. 

I believe that being driven by your work and being inspired by your passion feeds you. Since I experienced both sides of the story in person, the traveler’s side and the organizer’s side, working for Kids Of Nature is a unique job to me. 

Give me a call today to schedule a private consultation.

Get in touch today and we will plan your next adventure.

HERBERT BRAUER

Facilitator & Coach

Namibian, now living in South Africa

I spent many hours in remote wilderness, mostly in Southern Africa.  My fascination with animals and a sense of deep connection with wild nature inspired my commitment to conservation from a young age. I formally studied life and geosciences at South African universities. This proved to be of great value to me, first as a safari guide, then as a professional photographer and subsequently as a wildlife cameraman. Further training with trackers, intuitive healers and through rights of passages received in authentic nature traditions expanded my understanding of our multidimensional relationship with Nature in the greatest sense.    


During the filming of the award-winning National Geographic wildlife documentary THE LAST LIONESS, my interactions with lioness Lady Liuwa radically challenged my belief system, leading to progressive changes in all areas of my life.  I came to realize that all authentic change needs to be created and formed from within.


As a transformative coach, mentor and wilderness guide I facilitate the dynamic space where we receive profound insights for personal transformation, vision, and growth, gaining wisdom through personal experience.  I also facilitate a space in which outdated, limited beliefs and patterns can be released and the multidimensional balance in our lives restored, which causes a ripple effect into our human and non-human environment.
