Author Marion Whitehead

Marion WhiteheadFreelance photojournalist and author Marion Whitehead’s addiction to wonderment keeps her on the road, her camera at the ready, looking to see who or what is around the next bend, especially when it involves mountains and wildlife. The former assistant editor of Getaway is a Rhodes University journalism graduate. The idea for her first travel guide, Passes & Poorts: Getaway’s Top 30 Scenic Mountain Routes in the Western Cape, was born out of her experience as a tour guide in the Garden Route and Little Karoo, which in turn led to her second book, Passes & Poorts South Africa.
