CAPRICORN: FOLLOWING THE INVISIBLE LINE (article first published : 2003-10-24)

Capricorn: Following the Invisible Line is legendary adventurer Kingsley Holgate’s journal of his incredible journey around the world along the Tropic of Capricorn. Kingsley, his wife Gill, their son Ross and a variety of different expedition members on each of the continents they crossed, tackled everything the ten Capricorn countries could throw at them.

Heading forever west along 23° 27’S, in their trusty Land Rovers Chuma and Susi, the hardy Capricorn Expedition team braved unexploded landmines left over from the Mozambican civil war, the man-eating lions of the Kruger National Park as they crossed the reserve on foot, and the great Namib Desert.

In South America the Capricornians had the Andes to overcome and then the Atacama Desert - driest place on planet earth. Australia’s greatest obstacle was the endless parallel ridges of the vast Simpson Desert; never before crossed by vehicle along the tropic. And Madagascar, the final Capricorn country, was far from being the easiest. The team found themselves almost unable to continue, after days trekking on foot through the island’s dense mountain forests.

Capricorn: Following the Invisible Line is published by Struik Publishers.
