About the authors

Marsel van Oosten and Daniëlla Sibbing spent eight months travelling through southern and eastern Africa to capture images of some of the continent’s most desirable destinations for this book.

Marsel van Oosten swopped an award-winning career in advertising for nature and wildlife photography after his interest flourished following a trip to Tanzania. Dutch-born Marsel’s photographs demonstrate his mastery of composition, lighting, colour and perspective. His work is featured in galleries and museums, and used in advertising and design, as well as in editorial features in magazines such as National Geographic. His numerous accolades include winning the International Photography Awards (IPA) on three occasions, taking first prize in the Nature’s Best International Photography and Nature Photographers’ Network Editor’s Pick awards, second prize in the Travel Photographer of the Year and ‘Highly Honoured’ in the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards.

Daniëlla Sibbing graduated from the school of Marketing & Economics in The Netherlands. She started out in advertising, specializing in project management and account management before founding her own company. While travelling, Daniëlla began shooting video footage that captured the natural attractions, wildlife and culture of the countries she visited. Her eye for detail and editing abilities resulted in her becoming the producer and videographer for Squiver, a photographic tours and production company she runs with Marsel van Oosten. Her video footage is also used by stock agencies worldwide.
