win a private game reserve stay

One lucky pair will win a three-night stay at the luxurious Samara Private Game Reserve in the Great Karoo in the Eastern Cape worth R25 000 in total. The prize includes accommodation, all meals and game drives; travel and drinks will be for your own account.

Sitting on land that has been allowed to recover for over 20 years, the malaria-free reserve is home to a thriving ecosystem and multiple vegetation biomes that provide habitat for many different species, including aardvark, Cape mountain zebra, black and white rhino, buffalo, eland, gemsbok and cheetah.

The environment makes for a very relaxing stay disconnected from frenetic city life, and guests can look forward to accommodation that channels a traditional Karoo farmhouse feel. There are light and airy suites in the main homestead and private suite-style cottages in the garden that offer some more privacy – both have en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. Then there’s also the Manor House, which has four rooms and can be booked exclusively by families or groups.

As far as activities go, visitors can spend their time going on game drives, enjoying walking safaris that track cheetah and rhino and tucking into picnics in the bush or on a cliff top.
