Project Upland takes bird hunting to South Africa in Spell of Africa
Spell of Africa takes you halfway across the world to show bird hunting in South Africa like you’ve never seen it before. A.J. DeRosa finds his heart captured by upland birds rather than the traditional big game Africa is so famous for. It’s a poetic and inspirational trip in the midst of hunting controversies in Africa.
“Although I was far from the grouse woods of North America, I still found myself in them—here in Africa.” – Spell of Africa
This unique bird hunting video is a glimpse into how oceans can transcend the ideals of the grouse woods in the unlikeliest of places. For anyone spellbound by Africa, this is an inspiring film.
“You hunt for as long as you live and there is such and such an animal; just as you paint as long as there is you and colors and canvas and you write as long as you can live and there is pencil and paper or ink or any machine to do it with or anything you care to write about, and you feel a fool, and you are a fool, to do it any other way.” – Green Hills of Africa
