Andrea Dijkstra and Jeroen van Loon are Dutch multimedia journalists, based in Nairobi, Kenya. They work all over the continent for international media (like Deutsche Welle English, Al Jazeera English and Le Monde Afrique), Dutch media (like Het Parool, Vrij Nederland and NPO Radio 1) and Belgian media (like De Tijd, De Morgen and Knack Magazine). They also do videos and storytelling for international organizations like Amref Health Africa, the Clinton Foundation and Plan International. While Andrea focuses mostly on writing and radio reporting, Jeroen’s specialisms are photography and videography. They form a perfect team but also do individual assignments.
From 2011 till 2016, they undertook a journalistic road trip in their Land Rover Defender and worked in twenty African countries, including Ethiopia, Kenya, South-Sudan, Rwanda, D.R. Congo, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa. Thanks to this journey, they met many interesting people and learned so much about the diversity and complexity of this puzzling continent.
They are available for media assignments throughout Africa. Also, they are available for storytelling, production and training assignments. Feel free to contact them.
