About Morkel Erasmus

It may look like he's a full-time guide or a full-time photographer, but the truth is he's neither. Morkel Erasmus grew up with a love for the wild places and wild animals of Africa like many South Africans do. The problem is that he became obsessed with capturing their enigmatic beauty when he first picked up a camera.

Morkel now leads safaris for Wild Eye in his spare time, and spends a lot of time sharing his knowledge and passion with others online. Check out more of his work at www.morkelerasmus.com
