National Geographic explorer Kingsley Holgate will be journeying through nine southern African countries starting next month.

Holgate will be going on the Boundless Southern Africa expedition as part of an initiative aimed at raising awareness about transfrontier conservation areas (TFCAs) as tourist and investment destinations.

The four-month expedition will start at the Tourism Indaba in Durban on May 11 and end at the mouth of the Orange River in the Ai-Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park in August 2009.

The 10 000 km expedition will cover nine countries: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

During his journey Holgate will visit seven TFCAs and 30 national parks and nature reserves.
