Wilderness Dreaming

Packed with danger, humour and true-life campfire tales, Wilderness Dreaming is an endearingly honest memoir of one photographer’s unforgettable quest for his own lost Africa. Listen to this Wilderness Dreaming review.

Wilderness Dreaming

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 obsessions catapult 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. Read this Daily Maverick review.

More about Africa coffee table book AWE: Africa is a fascinating continent, full of mystery, power and beauty. It is these qualities that helped draw romantics like Karen Blixen to her shores a century ago. Many however feel that the 21st century Africa has lost its ‘awe’. Others are of the opinion that they have seen all the ‘awe’ that Africa has to offer and there are of course also those that still find Africa’s sights, sounds and smells as intoxicating as ever. Whichever camp you are in, through the pages of AWE, South African author and wildlife photographer, Greg du Toit, invites you on a journey with him to rediscover an enchanting Africa, one that is as freeing and captivating as it was when Livingstone first set foot on its wild shores.
