The Clarens and Golden Gate areas are now at the forefront of fossil finds for dinosaurs. In fact the recent excavations have dated the incredible eggs with embryos to 100 million years earlier than anything else found across the world. This makes this 3 to 4 hour tour a must on your itinerary.
Your guides are a father and son team. Gideon Groenewald is an accredited expert as both a qualified geologist and paleontologist and his son, David, is in the process of completing his paleontology thesis. They are not only the best people in the field to make this fascinating area come alive, but they are able to give you a chance to see up close, and even hold pieces from their vast collection which their own archeological digs have unearthed.
You will need your own transport to get to where you can walk in the footsteps of the dinosaurs … literally!
For those who would like to experience an archeological dig, you will not only have a sense of discovery as you painstakingly brush centuries of silt and sediment from a bone but your efforts and experience will be a tiny step to help the scientists.
