To enter, all you need to do is complete the SA Specialist online training course, and in the spirit of Nelson Mandala’s Centenary, write in 30 words or less which Mandala-inspired tourist attraction you would visit and why.

This is your chance to stay at the lavish Taj hotel in Cape Town, overlooking one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, Table Mountain.

Not to mention, you’d get to drink your way through the Cape Winelands and dine in the country’s finest restaurants, cycle through a local township and enjoy a home-cooked meal, visit Mandela ’s jail cell on a boat trip out to Robben Island, meet the African Penguins on a visit to Boulder’s beach and experience a night on the town bar hopping through Cape Town’s famous haunts.

You’ll also get the chance to enjoy South Africa’s scenic beauty from one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, Grootbos Private Nature Reserve and jump into the many adventure activities on offer including horseback riding and Great White Shark cage diving if you dare!African sunset with silhouette

And no trip to South Africa is complete without seeing the Big 5. So what better place to lap up the whole safari experience than the iconic Lion Sands Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands. From the expert rangers who will have you hanging on every story, to sundowners against the most incredible African sunsets, you will experience everything the finest safari has to offer.

Plus, you’ll get to visit Mandela’s home in Soweto and discover Joburg’s newest hip, urban precinct, Maboneng, on a street art walking tour, and experience the revitalised culture of this bustling city before flying back on your South African Airways flight to Australia.

This prize includes all international/domestic flights and taxes, accommodation, meals and activities with $0 participation fee!

So what are you waiting for? Get cracking and start your entry here.
