Last December, Hunter came to Wildland Adventures with an idea for creating a special graduation adventure for his grandson, Evan. Knowing the power and value of travel, Hunter had offered Evan an excursion to anywhere in the world as a gift for graduating from high school with distinction; Evan, wisely, chose Southern Africa! A seasoned safari-goer himself, Hunter turned to Wildland to help plan a meaningful and varied trip that would provide a robust cross-section of African culture and wildlife through Cape Town, the greater Kruger National Park, and Victoria Falls. Here are some of his incredible images and thoughts on the trip:
The Peech Hotel in Johannesburg was superior; sorry it was only one night. Our only mistake was to insist on a day for history and apartheid experiences; Cape Town was a far better experience for these purposes. Jo'burg probably could have been OK with more time.
Ilala Lodge at Victoria Falls was exactly what we wanted - not quite as elegant as Vic Falls River Lodge would have been (based on photos), but a perfect location. We were very glad to be a 10 min walk to the falls, with good shopping, and restaurants…. impeccable ambiance and service for day visitors, beautiful setting.
