Everyone knows that Namibia is full of stars and dunes: but here are the more surprising things I learnt on my adventure.

If you’ve never travelled beyond South Africa’s borders, southern Namibia is an easy, yet beautiful, introduction to travel in Africa.
On my sixth week travelling through the Kruger National Park, I ticked one of the park’s most beautiful species off my list and discovered that, contrary to what I’ve been told, the northern region doesn’t all look the same.
We had spent seventy two hours in the Sotho kingdom and the only trace of prehistoric life were a few footprints of the elusive Lesothosaurus. We were hoping that at Golden Gate Highlands National Park, our final destination, we would unearth great informantion about fossils.
After a short hiatus in Cape Town, I’m back in the Kruger National Park. Here is my fourth week of travel in pictures. During this week I visited Nkambeni Tented Lodge and Olifants Rest Camp and admired the sun rising and setting over the bush many times.
After conquering Compassberg, travel and nature writer Dale Morris, Bianca Preusker and I headed to Lesotho where I reflected on my time in the Sotho Kingdom and the lessons he learned during their search for the footprints of the elusive Lesothosaurus.
Athenkosi Matyalana recently embarked on a two-week roadtrip in search of South African fossil sites with photographer Dale Morris. This is a tale of how they successfully hiked Compassberg against treachourous terrain and wind.
After a two-week road trip, I turned up at George Airport for a 14h45 flight. Little did I know I would spend the next four hours staring at the airport, thanks to the poor service from SAA.
It’s been five days since we left George in search of pre-historic life in South Africa. Our journey led us to the little town of Nieu Bethesda, the birthplace of great paleaontologist Professor James Kitching.
After two days at the Karoo National Park, we hit the R61 towards Ganora Guest Farm, near Nieu Bethesda. We knew nothing about the farm except that there were fossils within its premises. At the farm we discovered a wealth of fossil discoveries and adventure.
