Swaziland’s First Ever Instameet !


Instameet ArtworkThe Kingdom of Swaziland’s Big Game Parks invites instagrammers to the very first instameet in Swaziland! This event will be hosted at Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary on the 16th December 2015. An InstaMeet is an event where a group of photographers and videographers who are on instagram meet up to take photos and videos together. Instagram is an exciting social networking service that enables its users to share pictures and videos. The vital ingredients for this event are a group of fun, easy going instagrammers with smart phones, data bundles and a desire to connect and explore nature with other Instagrammers.

Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary is a beautifully scenic park ideal for exploring nature and this Instameet will provide a great opportunity to meet new people, share opinions, tips and experiences related to Instagram;  take pictures and instantly upload them to Instagram. Save the date! #LookCloser #MlilwaneInstameet15 #TheBeautyOfNature @BigGameParks

Well done one and all! The Imvelo community of riders have proven themselves to be of the highest caliber. The route was tougher this year  in order to bring in more single track and to include the novelty of the tunnels, all the while taking in awesome panoramic vistas dotted with wild animals. Photos will be available shortly, please check back on Tuesday for details on how to get your hands on a copy of the disc.
