Today’s entire post will be spent on the Jungle Cruise, circa 1958, with the photos presented in the order that they were taken. Where possible, each photo will be paired with a contemporary view. This has got to be one of the most comprehensive sets of photos in my collection from one voyage (besides the obsessive ones that I take!). The butterflies in this shot are one of the most difficult things to capture, due to the speed of the boat and the poor lighting.
One of my favorite sections of the old Jungle Cruise is this area of the Ancient City:
The famous African Bull Elephant:
Originally, this African Veldt scene occurred without any cover over the feasting felines:
Naturally, there is at least one Hippo shot in the batch:
The natives are doing their thing:
Can you believe they even got the back side of water?!?
And the final shot is one that we don’t see any more; this ape bit the dust years ago:
