March 2019 issue is out!

Posted on 18 February 2019

Our March issue is out! In our cover story, Melanie van Zyl undertakes a 4×4 expedition through the sublime wilds of Namibia’s Kaokoland and becomes smitten.

We also feature foraging on the Cape’s West Coast, a Southern African all-woman overland expedition and two crazy South Africans who headed to Iceland to search for the Northern Lights in the middle of winter. Editor Justin Fox hopes this issue whets your appetite as much as it does ours. Look out for our bumper 30th birthday issue next month and, to celebrate, a spectacular coffee-table book called The 30-Year Safari.

This month’s contributors

Melanie van Zyl – Kaokoland, page 88

Ten days, seven rivers, four wheels, and three guides open the door to Namibia’s Narnia: the wondrous and remote northwestern wilderness.

Alexandra Findlay and Luke Bell – Iceland, page 96

Home to volcanoes and glaciers, Iceland is an unpredictable mix of adventures. Here’s why two young, intrepid Capetonians decided to navigate the island in midwinter.

Janine Stephen – Cape Point, page 76

Most trips to the Cape of Good Hope involve a run to the lighthouse and back. But what’s the point of that when there’s so much else to see and enjoy? Alternative views of this iconic tip of the continent abound.

Heinrich van der Berg – Moods of Nature Portfolio, page 68

Heinrich van der Berg is a thinking photographer. As he says: ‘Black-and-white photography is more about texture than subject, more about character than beauty. It’s about what’s inside.’ This is a selection from his latest book, Moods of Nature.
