This large-format, image-driven book features 46 of Africa’s most sought-after safari getaways – those exclusive lodges where guests are virtually guaranteed encounters with the Big Five, alongside luxurious accommodation, superb service and first-class cuisine.
The selected lodges are among the best that Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana and South Africa have to offer. Stunning photographs depict the ambience and décor of the establishments, as well as the magnificent landscapes and wildlife. Photographer Marsel van Oosten and videographer Daniëlla Sibbing spent eight months travelling through Africa to capture images of some of the continent’s most romantic destinations, making Wild Romance the ideal memento of a once-in-a-lifetime African experience.

MARSEL VAN OOSTEN swapped an award-winning career in advertising for nature and wildlife photography after his interest grew following a trip to Tanzania. Dutch-born Marsel’s photographs demonstrate his mastery of composition, lighting, color and perspective. His work is featured in galleries and museums, and used in advertising, design and editorial features. His many accolades include the International Photography Awards, European Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards, Travel Photographer of the Year Awards, Nature’s Best International Photography Awards and Nature Photographers’ Network EP Awards.
DANIËLLA SIBBING graduated from the school of Marketing & Economics in the Netherlands. She began a career in advertising, specializing in project and account management before founding her own company. During her travels, Daniëlla began shooting travel documentaries in order to capture the nature, wildlife and culture of the countries she visited. Her eye for detail and editing skills resulted in videography becoming her new passion. She is now producer and videographer for Squiver, the photographic tours and production company she runs with Marsel van Oosten. Her video footage is used by stock agencies worldwide.
What a wonderful book to place on your table for everyone to see Africa, whether you have just returned from a safari, or are planning one, or will never go to Africa: the photos are BEAUTIFUL! The best places to stay for a romantic safari in each of six countries (South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya) are captured in photo essays of each property and a half page review of the features including: the lodge and rooms, what to see and do, food and service, when to go, romance factor, and rates (which range from $400 - $1,000 per person, per night). There are full and double page photos of animals and landscapes between each lodge featured in the book. At the back of the book is contact information for each lodge and for transportation. The book is exquisite!
