On The Loose in Southern Africa


My latest magazine feature just hit newsstands.

You can find it in Chapters, Coles and other bookstores across Canada, and in select international magazine stores in the United States.

Congrats to Tomoko Goto for landing the cover photo on her first feature assignment.

Outpost magazine Ryan Murdock's Namibia feature

It’s a story of adventure, exploration, close animal encounters and more.

I don’t remember where I first heard about Namibia. Perhaps it was from photos of towering dunes plunging into a bleak and unforgiving sea. Or maybe it was the old maps that fascinated me as a child. A name like the Skeleton Coast surely caught my eye.

Deserts have always been my personal landscape. And it was time to explore southern Africa’s greatest.

But I wanted to do it at my own speed: driving my own Land Rover, fully kitted out with roof tent, fridge, repair kits and more.

There’s an incredible sense of exhilaration that comes from being completely responsible for yourself in the middle of this cradle of civilization, this continent as old as memory.

Pick up the November / December 2012 issue of Outpost and join me on my latest adventure.
