African Wildlife Photography

 Africa – One of the last places on earth where Animals still roams freely on the African plains.

Hi my name is Fanie, and my wife’s name is Annette. We are both nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.  We are privileged to be born and bred in South Africa, with endless breath taking landscapes and wildlife. Whether it be the mountains – the desert – the African plains or sea, we are at our happiest as long as we can be spending as much as possible time in the wild.  We have started out with hiking during 2000 and already did many multiple day hikes all over South Africa. Being able to see and experience the most beautiful scenery during the trails, the passion for photography was born.

Wildlife photography opportunities in Africa are awesome. There are various wildlife destinations in Africa that we have on our bucket list to visits for the near future, when we have more time.  Currently we are only able to do our photography and outdoor hobbies during our annual leave, and weekends, as we are still full time employed. I am a computer Technician, and Annette is a Sr. State Accountant.
