If you’ve recently travelled on a dirt road in Lesotho, I’m sure the following has happened to you: You’re inching your way up a pass, possibly even in low range, as you avoid rocks and holes in the road. You turn to your spouse, who is nervously eyeing the drop-off on the left. “This is why we bought a 4x4 darling,” you say. “Imagine trying to do this in our old…” Suddenly a dinky Honda Jazz whizzes past on the right, rudely interrupting your “money well spent” monologue. A few seconds later, an old Toyota Hi-Ace minibus, filled with passengers and luggage, hoots twice as it passes. There are few things that can dent the ego of a 4x4 owner like a road trip in Lesotho! Rey Janse van Rensburg’s story of…

behind the scenes

What excites you about working for this magazine? Unearthing hidden and lesser-known travel secrets, picking up smart adventure tips from experts and readers, learning new facts about wildlife (which I love to share with my kids), and of course, getting to test out the latest gear and gadgets. When going camping, I always pack… Sunscreen and after-sun lotion. I know it’s a cliché, but sunburn is one of the quickest ways to ruin a holiday. Oh, and a Waboba ball – it bounces on water! What’s your favourite weekend activity? Right now, it’s beach time with my kids Georgie (5) and Carter (2) at Boulders, Kommetjie or Muizenberg. My wife Jess and I try to explore somewhere new with friends once every two months – we call it our Adventure Club, and each…

On the catwalk Of all the special moments that the Kruger Park has treated me to, this is the highlight. I was driving on the S112 south of Skukuza when I turned a corner and came face to face with this pride of lions. My heart was beating like a drum! A big male was tailing them from a distance – he was too slow for the family portrait. JP VAN ZYL, Brits Crouch, stalk, engage During a visit to Pilanesberg Game Reserve, I heard that a cheetah and her three cubs had made a kill in a specific area the day before, so I went to check it out. When I saw the traffic jam in the road ahead, I knew something was up. The cheetah was busy teaching her cubs how to…

Itchy and scratchy Q RIKA VAN VUUREN from Sasolburg writes: This bug bit me during a holiday in the Lowveld. The bite burnt for about three hours and started to itch weeks afterwards. Is it a centipede? A Entomologist DUNCAN MACFADYEN says: This is a red-legged centipede. Our knowledge of South African centipedes is very poor since we haven’t had a specialist in the country for about 40 years. I’d have to look closely at the hind legs and teeth to identify the exact species. A centipede “bites” with its forcipules – stinger-like appendages that pierce the skin and inject venom into the wound. The centipede’s venom causes pain and swelling, but it’s usually not life-threatening to humans. Some people may develop an allergic reaction – I suspect the itching could have had something…
