Angelica Mills graduated with honours in BCom Tourism Management at the University of Pretoria. She began as a travel consultant at C4 Photo Safaris that sparked a passion for photography and nature conservation.
She has continuously improved her knowledge on the natural world by immersing herself in the natural world, studying via FGASA and doing courses with Endangered and Priority Species Conservation and Habitat Management (Wildlife Act).
Her passion to assist others in wilderness areas led her to volunteer with Children in the Wilderness (CITW) within the Northern Tuli Game Reserve, where Mashatu Game Reserve is located since 2017. Angelica became an integral part of the CITW team, teaching photography to over a hundred children who live on the outskirts of the reserves, some of who are now working directly within the Northern Tuli reserves as a result of their interaction with CITW.
She is well-travelled in Africa with experience in South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania and Kenya. In November 2020 Angelica was selected as a Girls Who Click Ambassador: the only ambassador from Africa. The GWC ambassador program propels diverse women into the professional arena of professional nature photography.
Angelica currently lives in Hoedspruit. Here she can access wilderness areas whilst also have hands on work hands in tutoring other photographers in the region. She is building her guiding experience continuously – providing inspiration to many younger aspiring nature photographers.
