Well this is the end of the A to Z challenge and probably the most tricky letter for me as I haven’t got any buildings or architectural terms beginning with a Z, In fact the only one I can find is a Ziggurat and not having visited Mesopotamia (Iraq and Iran) needless to say I don’t have a photo of one.

So I hope my Zulu huts will suffice! It’s been an enjoyable journey, thinking of interesting buildings around the world for the challenge, and those of you who have followed this from the start, I hope that you have enjoyed it too 🙂

Z - Zulu RondavelIf you want to visit a game reserve in southern Africa, but don’t have deep pockets then do not despair. Addo Elephant Park in the Eastern Cape is a reserve that is home to much more than elephants, and you can stay inside the park in adorable thatched roofed Rondavels, in the style of traditional African huts.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed travelling with you along this A-Z travel challenge Jude and what a great way to end with these Zulu huts…very inventive! As I’ve said before, I would love to go to Addo Elephant Park and stay in one of these huts. Thanks to you, I am actually starting to believe that this now might be a possibility. I am already working on Hubby about it and he wants to go too, so who knows?! I will no doubt be bombarding you with questions when that time comes. 🙂 xx
