Nearly two decades ago, Zimbabwean-born Robyn Keene-Young left her job as an attorney to live in a tent and document the African wild with her photographer husband. Since then, she has lived among the baboons of the Okavango Delta, the lions and wild dogs of the Linyanti, and the buffaloes of the Kruger National Park. Her work has taken her from the deserts of Namibia to the forests of Uganda and the shores of the mighty Zambezi. Robyn’s travel and nature writing has been published in magazines worldwide. She is an Emmy-nominated wildlife film producer and the author of five books on Africa, including Backseat Safari
and Africa Unplugged
. Her latest documentary, about the zebras of Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Pans, will be aired on PBS/Nature in 2013.
