Greg Du Toit was born in Pretoria, South Africa and matriculated from Pretoria Boys High. A period of 270 hours at a waterhole in Kenya culminated in a cover story, ‘Living on the Edge’, for Africa Geographic magazine. Another published portfolio, ‘Beneath the Radar’, documented 22 months spent in the remote south of Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park. He was awarded the highest accolade in world wildlife photography when he won the ‘BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year’.

His work has been shown in natural history museums around the world and hung in the National Geographic Store galleries in London and Singapore. Among his photographic books are the bestselling AWE, and Getting it Right in Camera. His latest title (published in October of this year) is a memoir called Wilderness Dreaming, and details his thrilling personal pursuit to discover his ‘lost Africa’. He currently conducts photographic safaris in some of Africa’s wildest places, and is well known for his conservation work.
