Melanie van Zyl

Born, bred and based in Johannesburg, Mel is an adventurous travel photojournalist and destination photographer with a soft spot for responsible travel and sharing the environment sustainably with the wild world. She also makes a mean G&T, will try any local dish and is happiest when 4x4ing through mud (or sand—not picky) on southern Africa’s remote backroads. A qualified field guide, diver and growing twitcher, she’s a sucker for the wilderness, the creatures that inhabit it and greatly admires the people living on the peripheries.
