This film takes you on a journey through Namibia and South Africa where we search for turtles and tortoises in some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world.

From Windhoek, Namibia to Cape Town, South Africa is approximately 1,500 km due south. This transect crosses the range of 11 species and subspecies of turtle and tortoise. The last remaining habitat of Psammobates geometricus - arguably one of the most endangered species of tortoise in the world - was visited while in South Africa.

The species list includes: Chersina angulata, Stigmochelys pardalis babcocki, Stigmochelys pardalis pardalis, Homopus areolatus, Homopus signatus, Homopus solus, Pelomedusa subrufa, Psammobates oculiferus, Psammobates tentorius tentorius, Psammobates tentorius trimeni, and Psammobates tentorius verroxii.
