Photographer Mathilda de Villiers shares her images and feedback about her time in the wild. She stayed at Nsala Safari Camp in the Greater Kruger, where she felt at home in the bushveld. The team at Nsala were quite happy to play host to an award-winning journalist and passionate photographer. Mathilda certainly showcased the inhabitants of the wild in the best way possible. Alluring light at sunset and bold colours during the day provided the perfect backdrop for her subjects. Nsala shares borders with the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and the popular Kruger National Park. Perfectly placed for a big 5 safari !
Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, Mathilda de Villiers moved to Vancouver in 2016 to pursue a new career in journalism. She has been a photographer for roughly a decade and has frequented the African bush with friends and family for years.
Today, she is a published and award-winning journalist and photographer in the Canadian media.
Her career has had many layers and she is self-taught in various skills, including social media management, design and hands-on project management. In her spare time she volunteers, passionate about helping others and creating positive change in the work that she does. Her time in the bush always awakens her soul and she was grateful that she could visit such a special location such as Nsala Safari Camp in January 2020.
Mathilda de Villiers had this to say about Nsala Safari Camp, “The people, the location and the vibe of the camp is incredibly special and I found myself back in my happy place being surrounded by the raw wild. Thank you to the whole crew – I cannot wait to return next year!”
