About the Author:
Peter Derichs was born in Germany in 1947. At age 8 his family emigrated to South Africa. At an early age he developed an interest in animals and the outdoors.
After matriculating in Cape Town he eventually ended up in South West Africa (Namibia) working for the Hydrology section of the Department of Water Affairs.
For 6 years he spent 3 weeks per month travelling the length and breadth of that beautiful country.
His travels took him to the Skeleton Coast, Bushmanland, Kaokoland, Ovambo, Caprivi, the Diamond Sperrgebiet and Southern Angola.
During this time he developed a passion for photography and some of his photos are still available as postcards in Windhoek today.
After graduating from University of South Africa, he and his wife moved to Richards Bay in Kwa-zulu Natal and eventually to Johannesburg. Like millions of South Africans, he took every opportunity he could get to travel to the various National Parks.
