Win a 3 Night Garden Route Big Game Getaway (closed)

Send to Kindle

WIN a 3 night stay at the biggest game reserve in the Southern Cape – Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve – and discover an “Out of Africa” experience just a few minutes drive from the seaside town of Plettenberg Bay on the Cape’s magnificent Garden Route.

The prize includes:

  • 3 consecutive nights accommodation for 2 people sharing at the exclusive Baroness Luxury Safari Lodge
  • breakfast and dinner daily
  • a game drive OR (for an “up close and personal” experience) a horse safari each day

Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve

Plettenberg Bay Private Game Reserve is home to Africa’s Big 4 (rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard). The reserve is situated on over 2,000 hectares of indigenous beauty and is malaria free. There are over 150 different species of game and birdlife. Join us on a horseback safari to interact closely with the wildlife, or simply relax and enjoy a 2 hour game drive in an open landrover with our experienced and well-informed guides and see our large variety of wildlife up close. Then retreat to the 10-suite Baroness Luxury Safari Lodge – reminiscent of the romantic colonial era of an “age gone by” – where you can relax and unwind, enjoying true African hospitality.

While antelope and Zebra roam carefree around the lodge, guests are often distracted by the rolling views which capture their eyes, drawing them down across the rolling lawns towards the indigenous forests. Then up over the tree tops of Giant Yellowwoods, to the craggy foothills of the region, and up into the magestic Tsitsikamma mountains in the distance beyond. It’s no wonder guests are reluctant to leave!

Experience a hidden gem, where abundant wildlife roam the plains, where the distant lion roars pierce the black dark of night and where the African sunset leaves an unforgetable memory.

    I phoned the Presidential office and thank goodness I did. If it was not for me making that phone call our Zumie would have ended up with 16 wifes in the very near future. Very early in our discussion it became clear to me that the whole problem is purely because our President misunderstood his wedding vows. He thought it meant: Four better, Four worse, Four richer and Four poor. So you can all relax. He now understands that he doesn’t have to have 16 wives!!. cause of that i can’t affort my honeymoon cause paying tooo much tax

    I have never been to that side of the country and have heared people say it is a lovely place to see. For the past five years I have never been on holiday since I used up all my vacation leave to study, so it will be a well deserved break to win the competition.
