After spending nearly a week collecting fossils near the Koobi Fora Spit, we relocated inland to the Karari Escarpment. The photo collection shows the range of transport vehicles. We had Range Rovers, the majority of them having seen their best days well behind them but still shrugging off the heavy punishment from the rough landscapes we traversed. We also had two trucks which transported all the field equipment from Nairobi to our area of operation. Our favorite wheels was, however, the heavy Unimog truck. The Unimog was able to climb slops in excess of 45 degrees with ease and the view of the landscape from its platform was fantastic.
