Author Biographies

Gerald Hinde was born in South Africa into a family that had a passion for wildlife and business. He was educated at King Edward VII School in Johannesburg where he matriculated.

After nearly 30 years as the managing director of a large family motor business, Gerald shed his business cares in 1989 and took up his hobby, and first love, as a new career. As a highly-skilled wildlife photographer he had produced his first book while still part of the family business in 1989. Over the years he has produced numerous wildlife books and documentaries, many of which received awards. Widely published in magazines, calendars and other publications, he has also won a string of awards in photographic competitions.

Will Taylor was born in Zimbabwe, and grew up with an intense love of nature and its conservation, earning advanced degrees in both zoology and botany from the University of Natal in Pietermaritzburg, and was awarded the prestigious Beit Fellowship for his Masters studies. He went on to be-
come a wildlife biologist and Senior Ranger of the MalaMala Game Reserve

in South Africa. In this capacity he guided many luminaries on safari including Margaret Thatcher and F.W. De Klerk along with other world leaders and celebrities.

Will is the founder and owner of Khashana Travel, a Dallas-based company that creates luxury and adventure travel experiences with a particular focus on wildlife photographic safaris. Will is deeply involved in African conservation and tourism and the benefits these pursuits bring to the communities and ecosystems they protect.

Gerald and Will have co-authored four African wildlife books, produced 20 wildlife documentaries that have been broadcast in over 40 countries, and have had their photographs exhibited and published worldwide. They both hope to continue their adventures in bringing images of Africa’s wildlife, landscapes and people to the world, and to continue to champion the is- sues involved in the conservation of the continent’s wild places.
