“Nature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion.”— Lorraine Anderson

Having spent my childhood in South Africa, I began an early love affair with the wilderness. Some of my most vivid memories are of lying awake at night listening to the roar of lions accompanied by a string quartet of cicadas, imagining the secret nighttime rituals happening outside in the dark.

While I grew up in Johannesburg, during our summer holidays my family would pack up our rusty old landrover and head somewhere wild–Kruger Park, Lapalala, Swaziland, Zimbabwe–and no matter how long we stayed, I never tired of seeing wildlife. I loved knowing that wildlife existed independently of our human world and had its own mysterious rhythms and complex relationships.[su_spacer]
