Wandel Guides is the co-founder of Kalahari Truffles. Our story begins fifteen years ago, in a village outside of Gaborone, the capital of Botswana. This is where we founded the most successful female-owned, socially responsible exporter of harvested natural products from the Kalahari desert. The village's first inhabitants are thought to originate from the Matebele people from western Zimbabwe.
A rare and wild delicacy that emerges from the deserts of Botswana and Namibia once a year, the Kalahari truffle offers an unforgettable, nuanced earthy flavor to any dish or product. Similar to its relative the black truffle but perhaps even more precious, the Kalahari truffle awakens something primal and passionate in those who eat it.
Wandel Guides is a leading producer of travel photography. Our photos are used by a growing number of travel agencies, tour operators, and international organizations, including Lonely Planet, UNHabitat, and the World Bank.
Wandel Guides maintains a portfolio of travel photography taken in Afghanistan, Myanmar, Namibia, South Africa, Botswana and many other countries.
Wandel Guides is the producer of Jordan's and South Africa's leading hiking books and the developer of ebikelovers.com, an online self-guided travel portal for e-bike enthusiasts in Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland.
Wandel Guides maintains an online portal for hiking books. A third project for an e-biking guide in the United States is under development.
Wandel Guides produces documentaries and short films. Our founders Brian McCotter and Dr. Gregory F. Maassen produced numerous videos for the US Government in Southern Africa.
