Change the Way You See the World


My name is Gerry van der Walt and I am a specialist photographic safari guide, educator, public speaker and co-founder of Wild Eye.

Through Wild Eye I have created a vehicle which merges the raw beauty of traveling in some of the worlds most spectacular wilderness areas with the ability to not only capture these moments on camera but also teaching and inspiring people along the way.

I look forward to changing the way you see the world!



My Wildlife Photography Podcast includes discussions, interviews, Q&As and various other aspects of wildlife photography.  Now available on:

With more than 15 years of experience in the guiding, lodge and hospitality industries I will assist you with not only planning and conceptualising your dream safari experience but also personally guide you throughout the itinerary to ensure that your African nature experience is about you.
