Frikki von Solms

I met Frikkie von Solms in October 2012.  He was the Group Leader for our Harnas Exclusive Volunteer experience.  Frikkie had created a volunteer experience which was designed for folks over 40 years of age.  He also created the regular volunteer program for younger adults.  The tour was an in-depth experience of the animals sheltered at Harnas as well as an opportunity to visit local Namibian cultural groups in the area.  Frikkie’s story is told in God is a Lion.  In addition to being a Lion Man, he had a long career in education and made significant contributions to the Namibian educational system.

Frikkie has begun his own tour company, Untamed Travel Africa.  Visit his website to plan your adventures in Africa –
