Author Biographies 

 Husband and wife award-winning photographers Philip and Ingrid van den Berg share a love of Africa and all its facets. It is their passion to capture unique moments in nature and share these with readers, through the pages of their wildlife books. Based in Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, and now retired from careers in environmental education and biological sciences, Philip and Ingrid have transformed a love of photography into a full-time "hobby", with several acclaimed wildlife books to their credit. With their extensive knowledge of the natural world coupled with their scientific backgrounds, they are an integral part of the HPH team of photographers and writers.

Heinrich van den Berg is an international award-winning wildlife photographer, and is also an accomplished writer and publisher. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Van den Berg is well known for pushing the boundaries of photography to create explosive images that are as beautiful as they are emotive. 

Van den Berg heads his own publishing company, HPH Publishing, and has successfully published over 40 full-colour wildlife titles since 2001. His books are highly acclaimed for both their quality and content. 

Heinrich and his wife Dana travel extensively in search of unique images‚ always with an eye for the unusual and a new perspective on the known world. Although Dana is a new addition to the team, she has already contributed substantially to the pool of photographs in the HPH Image Library. 

Along with other photographs from the HPH fold, Heinrich has featured prominently in numerous coffee-table books, calendars, magazine portfolios and other photographic publications worldwide. Both national and international magazines such as National Geographic, GEO, TERRA, Terra Sauvage, the New York Times, the Times of London, Getaway, Africa Geographic, Go! and numerous others have published HPH work. 

Van den Berg also shares his photography knowledge through exclusive workshops held in various parts of southern Africa.

    This is an excellent product which gives you all the vital information you need to make the most of a visit to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, along with some amazing photography showing you the kind of sights you can expect to see there if you are lucky, and observant. I have been to the Park 3 times before yet still gained a lot of knowledge and insight through this publication. I would recommend purchasing this product if you really want to get the best out of a visit to this amazing park. If I could, I would visit every year, but as I cannot, I can use this book to dream about it.
