About DeWetsWild

Thank you for joining us here at DeWetsWild!

We are the de Wets: Dad Dries, Mom Marilize and our son Joubert.

We have always had a great affinity for the wild outdoors and we’ve built our careers and family life around protecting, enjoying and showcasing the diverse natural heritage of the beautiful country we were blessed to be born in. Have a look at the wildlife and wild places we’ve featured here at DeWetsWild. If you’d like us to help you plan and book a visit to one of our wonderfully wild South African destinations, head here. And if you are looking for photographs of beautiful South African scenery and wildlife to use in a project, please have a look at what we have to offer.

We’re pleased to meet you and hope we’ll see you around here often. Come share our love for, and experiences in, South Africa’s spectacular wild places, from the smallest nature reserves to the biggest national parks, with us. You can follow along via e-mail subscription, Facebook or your WordPress account, and please feel free to join in and share your thoughts with us!

    I enjoy reading your blog and couldn’t be more excited to know that your son is dedicated to wildlife too. I like to share your posts with my sons as they love animals in general. Thx a lot and big hello from us here in West Java, Indonesia.

    I have been here before, but each time I return, I see more and more of your giant catalog of creatures. Are you native to South Africa, or have you immigrated there? It is nice to see that your family is also dedicated to the work you do.

    Thanks so much for following Oh, the Places We See! We have admired your photography for quite a while now, and your posts on South Africa make us want to book another trip there soon. Best wishes for always seeing the beauty and the unusual in the world!

    Hello (from Paris-France)
    It is by chance that I arrived on your site and I will follow it.
    You look like a traveling family and curious about the things of nature.
    I also like getting to know people from very different countries from mine and yours is a country where I would have liked a day to go.
