Dereck and Beverly Joubert

Beverly and Dereck Joubert, Photographers, Filmmakers, Naturalists
(National Geographic)

Award-winning filmmakers and naturalists Dereck and Beverly Joubert lead a life of adventure that most people can only imagine. For over 25 years they have made the African wilderness their home, dedicating their lives to understanding and protecting its majestic creatures. Through their research, filmmaking, photography, and writing, this amazing couple has brought us new insights into the lives of the lions, elephants, zebras, and other African animals that have long fired the human imagination. Almost entirely self-taught as filmmakers, the Jouberts have four Emmys and a Peabody Award to their credit for documentaries including Reflections on Elephants, Eternal Enemies: Lions and Hyenas, and Journey to the Forgotten River, all produced for National Geographic Television and Film. Beverly’s stunning photography and Dereck’s lyrical prose have also been showcased in books, such as Hunting With the Moon: The Lions of Savuti, and four articles for National Geographic. Earlier this year, the Jouberts were named National Geographic explorers-in-residence.(read more)
