Peter Sul­li­van

South African Country Life - - Contributors -

Peter Sul­li­van, who edited The Star in the 1990s and the In­de­pen­dent Group in the Noughties, is a boykie born in Bloem­fontein, who man­aged to travel a bit fur­ther afield (but still loves the Free State). Peter has trav­elled to no less than 69 coun­tries, but still en­joys the Kruger Na­tional

Park more than any­where else. He’ll also go any­where that al­lows birds, books, cy­cling, pol­i­tics and the odd Klip­pies and Coke to keep him go­ing. On his mother’s side he is a Louw, and a tenth-gen­er­a­tion South African, but his fa­ther was born in the then Rhode­sia, and a re­turn to pedal around the Ma­tobo Hills of Zim­babwe, south­west of Bu­l­awayo, was like re­vis­it­ing his an­ces­tors’ child­hood. Read about his cy­cling ad­ven­ture in Rock­ing the Matobos on page 40.
