In 2017 Instagram once again proved its popularity as a storytelling medium with an increase of 100 million users from April to September; the total community now stands at more than 800 million users.

This outstanding growth is testament to the way in which mobile users enjoy this visual medium – both to view other accounts as well as share images and stories.

We loved being part of the Instagram journey this year and seeing all the incredible photographs taken by our Wilderness community. The photographs below, chosen in order of popularity, were taken by both staff and guests and highlight some of the amazing moments we have been fortunate to share with you.

Enjoy our top 20 Instagrams of 2017!
