“Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there you will never be the same. Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings, the cradle of mankind, where our species stood upright on the savannahs of long ago?” – Brian Jackman

Mariëlle Renssen was born in Zimbabwe of Dutch parents, educated in Cape Town, has lived and worked twice in New York City and is now settled in Knysna. So a compulsive wanderer she claims to be! Having travelled extensively in Europe, America and Southern Africa, she can’t get the travel and writing bug out of her blood.
Mariëlle was with Struik New Holland Publishers for 12 years, working variously as book editor, writer and publisher. She is the author of many books, ranging in subject from marathon running and alternative health to a teenager living with dyslexia. Today her focus is mainly off-road travel writing in Southern Africa, where she writes extensively for MapStudio and for travel company Back RoadTours (www.backroadtours.co.za) which she co-established with husband, Hirsh, and a traveller friend.
