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.
