Ant Hoard From Cape Town Off To The Grand Canyon

6th May 2013

We wanted to say thanks so much to all those folks out there who entered our Facebook Grand Canyon rafting trip competition. Our eventual winner was Ant Hoard from Cape Town and a river guide for Gravity Adventures in Cape Town. Ant received a phenomenal number of shares in the competition, eventually becoming a runaway winner to raft the Grand Canyon.

Ant will be keeping a bit of the video diary on his trip down the Colorado and you’ll be able to see that on his return at the end of May. We have set up our tracker, so that guests and friends can follow progress of the trip down river and on the many hikes.
