How we started "African-Wildlife.com"

Since our first trip to Tanzania (in 2013) we're addicted to safaris (game drives) in Africa. If you like animals this must be one of the most beautiful continents! During these holidays we love to take "wildlife" photos. As a compliment to this hobby we are now building our own encyclopedia. If you find any errors please contact us! Keep in mind that we are not photographers but enthusiastic animal lovers who enjoy taking pictures. Having a photo at all is more important to us than having the best photo (although we will certainly try) !

Remember that www.African-Wildlife.com is our hobby and not our job so sorting through all photos (over 80000 !) takes a while. Sometimes we take more new photos during a year than we edit! But all the photos wil eventually be published!

In 2020 we decided to take it a step further and started the special website www.African-Wildlife.com. Without any financial intention but just to reach more people !

In addition to this website we started a facebook page. Please subscribe to this page.    

Thanks for visiting our site and best regards,
Hans Sinke & Joni Overbosch
