Back to the bush

We'll leave for Africa again this week for the Extreme Leopards tour in South Africa and the Masai Mara Migration tour in Kenya. In between we'll be shooting on assignment in Zambia. We will have limited internet facilities in the bush, but we will try to access our email whenever we can. It will simply take us a little longer than usual to answer your questions. See you soon!

Our new book is out now!

Good things come to those who wait. :-) This is what our publisher has to say about our new book:
"Wild Romance features 46 of Africa’s most sought-after safari getaways, those exclusive destinations 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 setting, ambience and décor of each establishment, as well as the magnificent landscape and unique wildlife. Marsel van Oosten and Daniëlla Sibbing spent eight months travelling through southern and eastern Africa to capture images of some of the continent’s most desirable destinations for this book. Whether you are planning a honeymoon or simply want to get close to nature with someone special, an African safari provides the perfect opportunity to bond with a loved one in a setting that combines the rawness of nature with the comforts of a luxury lodge. For anyone who takes love seriously, Wild Romance is a celebration of a once-in-a-lifetime African experience."

This hard cover, coffee table-style book features 296 pages, 730 full colour photographs and includes a free DVD. If you're interested in pre-ordering a signed copy, please drop us an email and we'll put you on the list. We will start shipping books in October. You can buy a signed copy of Wild Romance for 39,95 euro, excluding packaging & postage on www.squiver.com/WildRomance.html

The selected image is called 'Lashes' and features a close-up view of the eye and incredible long eyelashes of an African elephant.

Second tour added to White & Wild Japan 2010

As this popular trip filled up already quite early this year, we have decided to add another one, two weeks earlier: from 5-19 February 2010.

We expect this trip to fill up quickly as well, as the first bookings are already in. So if you would like to photograph snow monkeys bathing in natural hot springs, the elegant dances of the Japanese cranes, whooper swans in a snow covered winter wonderland, and Stellar's sea eagles on floating pack ice from Siberia - don't hesitate and make your reservation now!
