Fossils
may not be high on many people's agendas when considering a trip to Africa, but actually there are some really interesting locations, some of which are not far off the main safari routings.

The most magnificent area for fossils lies in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, where modest rural establishments such as Ganora Farm and Trymore Cottage have what can only be described as epic private fossil collections.

In the south Serengeti, the very cool Olduvai Camp provides access to the famous palaeontological digs in the nearby gorge of the same name. We have spent many happy hours fossil hunting in the area and rarely fail to turn up some kind of two million year old tooths or vertebrae.

Back in South Africa, in the Western Cape we have also been surprised and delighted to find ourselves surrounded by fossils of trilobites and other such animals, whilst out on safari from Sanbona Dwyka Lodge.

We have also been delighted to view finds made at various locations in Namibia, notably Zebra River Lodge.
