Palaeontology
is the study of life prior to the Holocene Epoch, so earlier than around 12,000 years ago, largely through the examination of the fossil record. It includes the evolution of early life forms, the study of dinosaurs and, perhaps most importantly here in Africa, the development of modern humans.

Africa is absolutely packed with wonderful areas for fossils, although they tend to get very much overlooked by the vast majority of visitors. Here are just a few of our favourites ...
