About us


Afripics is a stock image library specialising in Africa: its people, culture, tourist attractions, landscapes, destinations, wildlife and nature. We are a privately-owned business and have been in operation since 1998, and were one of the first South African-based digital photo libraries. We are also African distributors of the extensive Alamy Image Collection. We provide access to almost Three Hundred Million stock images, vectors and videos -  many of them are unique to these collections.  Search our website for a seamless display of all images available through Afripics.

We pride ourselves in our fast and friendly service, and our flexibility in meeting your time and budgetary constraints. Our trusted customers have immediate access to un-watermarked images for comps and layouts, and can open an account with us, with reasonable payment terms. We sell images on a per-image basis, and no subscription or pre-purchased credits are necessary. 

Feeling time pressure?  Send your brief and indication of your budget to salesdesk@afripics.com  and we will send you a hand-picked selection of our fine images for you to review.

We represent many of South Africa’s top professional photographers including  Obie Oberholzer, Martin Harvey, Heinrich van den Berg, Peter Pickford, Daryl Balfour, Lex Hes, Shaen Adey, Roger de la Harpe, and the late Walter Knirr as well as renowned bird specialists Albert Froneman and Chris Van Rooyen. Our objective is to provide a premium brand of outstanding photographs that showcase Africa’s diversity.

We welcome submissions from new photographers who meet the standards expected by our clients.
