Sara Ortin León is a full-time nomad, traveling the world in her campervan with her rescued Zambian dog, Ginger. The two first met in 2015 when León spent a year at a sanctuary in Zambia researching chimpanzees. León left after a year and didn’t think it was fair to take an African wild dog back with her. But, something pulled her back. She bought a one-way ticket to Zambia and managed to hunt down and rescue Ginger from working as a security dog. León rented a campervan, and set out to explore Africa (Zambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Malawi) with her baby.
Now, the two are inseparable and seek out adventures together. Ginger loves paddle boarding, enjoys the snow, chasing the Northern Lights, hiking in the African bush and camping. She makes sure she is always by her mother’s side, keeping her calm in the wild, being her companion when recuperating from malaria and even helping her plan trips.
