Send to Kindle


WIN a 3-night luxury bush breakaway for two persons, at the 5-star graded Botsebotse Bush Retreat, in the malaria-free Zebula Game Reserve and Golf Estate in the Limpopo province’s Waterberg region. Botsebotse Bush Retreat is a small, luxurious game lodge and is as much comfortable as it is a celebration of African design and art. Botsebotse will enchant you, steal your heart and leave you yearning for more.

The Prize

Valued at R10 020, the prize includes:

  • Accommodation for two persons sharing for 3 consecutive nights in a 5-star luxury temperature controlled suite with Queen-size bed, seating area, refreshment station, en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, private outdoor shower-bath, luxury toiletries, own private courtyard and undercover parking.
  • Conservation entry fee, a Big-5 guided quad bike OR horseback safari for two and unlimited self drive game drives, game walks and cycle safaris.
  • Coffee / tea, breakfast, lunch and romantic 3-course dinners in our dining area, lapa boma, bush boma or under the starry sky.
  • Welcome drink, bottle of complementary sparkling wine OR wine and surprise evening turndowns.

Comfortable indoor and outdoor lounges, a lapa, pool area and teak spa are ideal for relaxing during the day while luxurious double rooms with lavish en-suite bathrooms, private outdoor shower-baths and courtyards will offer you far more than just a good night’s rest. Recapture the art of leisurely dining under a starlit sky while you listen to the cry of the jackal. Enjoy soothing in-room spa treatments, Big-5 guided quad bike and horse back safaris, your own game drives, game walks, cycle safaris or 18 holes of golf at two premier golf courses, all situated on Botsebotse’s doorstep.
