Elders: NamibieWatch full episodes now
In 2015, more than a quarter of a million pilgrims completed the Camino de Compostela in Spain, and South African writer, journalist and TV presenter Erns Grundling was one of them. He documented this life-changing experience in a book and kykNET Original series titled Elders: die Camino.
And luckily for those who’ve chosen to live vicariously through his wandering, Erns is still walking, and hopefully inspiring the same meditative adventure in others.
He also took on the Kumano Kodo in Japan in Elders: Japan, streaming on Showmax. With Tokyo’s bright lights and busy Shibuya Crossing you’d be forgiven for thinking, what the hike? But as Erns explains, he loves hiking and Japan easily humble-brags some of the best and most beautiful pilgrimages, including the Nakasendo Trail, the former trade route between Tokyo and Kyoto, as well as the more challenging, snow-covered Mount Fuji.
Now Ernst is in Namibia, exploring our beloved neighbouring country in all its rugged beauty. He’ll share our neighbouring country’s endless vistas, breathtaking natural beauty, wildlife and, of course, the oldest desert in the world.
In the latest edition of his SAFTA-winning Elders travel show, join Erns as he walks, drives and flies through Namibia, encountering diverse people, quirky characters and friendly hospitality along the way.
