South Africa Adventure 2017-03-02T23:06:20+00:00


African Wildlife Safaris are giving you the chance to win an unforgettable South Africa journey for 2 people.

Discover South Africa, a vibrant multicultural nation with a fascinating history, amazing landscapes and a wealth of iconic African wildlife. One lucky winner and a companion will spend 5 nights exploring the ‘Rainbow Nation’, with flights from Perth to Johannesburg courtesy of South African Airways, and domestic connections via Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

The adventure begins in The Palace of the Lost City in Sun City set on the edge of the Pilanesburg National Park 2.5 hours northwest of Johannesburg. Guests at this luxury property enjoy free entry to the Valley of the Waves, a huge water park with a wave pool and lazy river.

Next stop is Sabi Sabi Game Reserve, which borders the world-famous Kruger National Park. Fly with Airlink to Skukuza where you are met and driven to your lodge. Three meals a day, sundowner drinks and all gameviewing activities are included during your 3-night stay at Bush Lodge, which offers a quintessential safari experience.

A typical day here starts with an early morning open vehicle game drive with an experienced ranger and tracker to provide the best chance of sightings. The Sabi Sabi reserve abounds with species including all of the ‘Big 5’ plus cheetah, wild dog and some 300 species of bird. There may also be the opportunity to feel the pulse of Africa through the soles of your feet on a guided walk before the evening’s game drive, when you’ll experience the beauty of an African sunset.

Prize includes:

  • Return South African Airways flights (economy) to Johannesburg ex Perth
  • Return domestic flights (economy) to Perth ex Sydney/Melbourne/Adelaide/Brisbane
  • Return Airlink flights Johannesburg/Skukuza
  • Private roundtrip road transfers Johannesburg Airport/Sun City
  • Return road transfers Skukuza/Bush Lodge
  • 2 nights with full breakfast at The Palace of the Lost City Luxury Twin Room
  • 3 nights full board at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge

This competition is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered.

We are happy to announce that the lucky winner is
Ms Brenda O’Keefe.

Please keep your eye out for future competitions.
