Photo of my family at a campsite in Kenya with our VW Van

This is a photo (by my father) of my early experience with vanlife. My family took this VW Van in Kenya when I was a kid. We only spent a couple weeks in Kenya before living in Nigeria for a school year.

I remember at one point getting stuck in a dried out riverbed in a game park after having passed a small herd of elephants just a short while before. We had to get out and push the van free and watch it zoom forward to safe ground while I thought about the elephants getting curios and deciding to see what the fuss was about. It was quite fun once I was back in the van.

“Susanne Wenger, a European, who has lived in Oshogbo, Nigeria, for many years, has been interested in religious symbols, dreams, fairy tales of the Yoruba. These images are syncretized in her work as shown in these two aspects of a fence and stairway in front of her home in Oshogbo.”

Elephants in Kenya

Elephants at the Ark, Aberdares National Park, Kenya. A watering hole and salt lick draw in animals for very close viewing. Later in the night a pack of lions stalked a water buffalo.
