A Film about Klaus Tiedge's Trip to Kenya in 2018
In 2017 Klaus Tiedge embarked on a rather ambitious journey to go to Kenya and make a film.
This “film idea” was something that Klaus had been thinking about doing for a few years already as a way to challenge himself to do something more than “just” photography. He hired film editor, Dean Paarman, to start the process by turning his existing footage into short videos for social media.
After receiving shocking news that Klaus was diagnosed with life threatening cancer, the idea of a film turned from an idea into a must-do goal. Life is too short not to do exactly what you want.

Klaus underwent a severe surgery and while in recovery decided that when he was out of the hospital, the planning would begin. True to his word Klaus spoke to his Dean Paarman and proposed he come with to help make this project a reality.
By February 2018 only final touches were required before the two of them would set off to film “The Safari of a Lifetime”.
An epic month of adventure, blood, sweat and tears ensued. Klaus’s Family joined them for the last week to make it one of the most memorable safari trips of all time.
