Wilderness Dreaming

Packed with adventure, humour and true-story campfire tales, Wilderness Dreaming is an endearingly honest memoir of one photographer’s unforgettable quest for his own lost Africa. Greg du Toit talks about his fascinating life of decades as an African Wildlife Photographer, as well as his incredible once-in-a-lifetime experiences like photographing lions from the middle of a watering hole.

Extract from the book:

Gazing down, I see the Great Rift Valley sprawled across Africa. In its vastness, my waterhole is a mere puddle, with a barely perceptible dot in the middle of it. That dot is me. I am all alone and suffering the close attention of two lionesses, whose flattened ears and twitching tails speak volumes. Is this how...

Greg’s story

Wilderness Dreaming chronicles the adventurous life of one of Africa’s most acclaimed wildlife photographers. As a young boy, Greg du Toit falls in love with the mysterious sounds, mesmerising creatures and heady aromas of the South African bush. At 18 and fresh out of school, his obsession catapults him away from the rat race of his childhood suburbs, and into the Africa of his dreams. It takes qualifying as a safari guide and surviving a buffalo charge while seeking out a reclusive forest bird, for Greg to find his life’s calling: photographing the alluring animals of a hauntingly beautiful continent. His journey takes him to Kenya where living alongside the Maasai, he discovers a secret waterhole. Next, Greg sets out on a photographer’s definitive quest to capture a corner of his lost Africa, where humans and free-ranging wildlife still co-exist. An exhilarating memoir, Greg’s story brings to life an Africa with much wildness left to celebrate — and one photographer’s place in it.
