About Us

Albie Venter: 

Based in South Africa, Albie Venter has been involved in professional wildlife guiding, wildlife management and eco-tourism since 1996.

An avid conservationist, Albie started his career in the South African Lowveld adjacent to the Kruger National Park, firstly as a guide and then together with his wife managed safari camps in East Africa before a stint in wildlife management. Guiding, his main passion, has taken him to many Southern and East African countries and regions – from the rugged Cederberg Mountains in South Africa to leading walking safaris in Kenya.

Albie started Africa Unlocked in 2009, specializing in privately guided safari and wildlife photography. He also leads specialist wildlife safaris for selected agents worldwide and regularly visits countries such as South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Kenya and Uganda.

He regularly contributes images and articles on a variety of subjects to several nature-based publications both printed and digital, such as Africa Geographic, Wild Planet, Africa Birds and Birding, African Birdlife, WILD, Getaway, Southern African Country Life and East African Travel News.

When time allows, Albie presents talks and lectures to audiences and clients including Africa Geographic and Wild Shots, Africa’s largest dedicated wildlife photography symposium.
