HyperGrid Safari - a choice of two hypergrid tour routes exploring locations in the OpenSimulator metaverse, featuring artistic builds, community, educational spaces, and free 3D content resources.

"We call it a Hypergrid Safari, because there's no saying what marvels you will see out there... but we can guarantee you a few close shaves, some friendly natives, and a bumpy ride!" - Thirza Ember

Improve your hypergrid skills, meet new people,  and learn about the joys of group grid jumping.Hypergridding is a way t test the limits of OpenSim technology, to inspire and encourage creators, and to strengthen the bonds of our community.

This year Thirza Ember of HG Safari has organized a special double trip around the hyperverse. Two separate trips depart from Expo Zone 2 on the OSCC grid at 11am. The whole adventure will be streamed with a commentary by Hypergrid experts such as John 'Pathfinder' Lester and Mal Burns

This year, two tours to cut the lag in half, and double our fun!You can choose to go on either the 'Dragon' tour or the 'Butterfly tour. Each will visit three different grids, and see builds that feature Big Art, Education, and interactive Entertainment. You will get to see what is means to travel from grid to grid and meet builders and owners and hear about how they have successfully used OpenSim.You'll experience a variety of different grids, from large to small, from commercial to non profit, in Europe and the United States.
