Author Biography

Hannes Lochner is an internationally awarded photographer who has been photographing wildlife professionally since 2007.

Hannes has produced four magnificent photographic books, three of which were dedicated entirely to the Kalahari. To achieve this, he lived in the Kalahari for five years, where he spent hundreds of hours capturing inspiring images of this captivating landscape and its enigmatic inhabitants. He now brings his dedicated approach and creative talents to Botswana’s Okavango Delta in Planet Okavango, living there for two and a half years and committing his every waking moment to his photography. 


Hannes has been recognised internationally, receiving several awards over the years - from the prestigious BBC‘s Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year, to being named at Nature’s Best Awards competitions. Also, a great number of his photos and articles have been published in both national South African press and in well-known international publications.

    Worthy of praise

    I bought the book for my husband as a birthday gift. He was thrilled. We sat together and paged through the book and read the background comments and totally enjoyed all the wonderful, mood-filled photographs and the candid comments made you feel like you were right there experiencing what the photographer behind the lense was seeing. It made us feel like we could have been right there! Great book and comes highly recommended from us both!!

    A true work of art and a labour of love

    It’s only through the work of masters such as Hannes Lochner that one truly appreciates the art that is photography. This book is stunning; every image worthy of a gallery wall. A veritable labour of love for the Okavango, its inhabitants, and the medium. A book of gravitas, which is great value for money at its size and beauty.
