The Wild World of

Vanuatu

finding Your Wild Paradise Destiny

Impressions of the hypnotizingly stunning Vanuatu

The Republic of Vanuatu consists of 82 small volcanic islands spread over a distance of about 10,000 kilometers, and they are all part of the „Ring of Fire. “ Vanuatu is home to some of the most active and very accessible volcanos of the world. And there are not too many white sand beaches with palm trees…. Hence, a different kind of Paradise.

The Ni-Vanuatu are Melanesians, most of them still live a traditional life in villages (tribal communities), and some of their ancestors were cannibals (until the 1970s).

For about 75 years, until 1980, Vanuatu was jointly governed by France and the UK before gaining independence. Thus, the lifestyle there is a blend of European and South Pacific habits and traditions.

Vanuatu is occasionally hit by a disastrous cyclone, the last being Pam. Until today – and even ongoing – the inhabitants of all impacted islands are still rebuilding their homes and businesses. Even nature remains in recovery mode.

But whatever happens, the Ni-Vans always smile and take life easy, one of the friendliest nations I’ve ever visited 🙂
