Travel Agents

Win your way to a South African adventure!

Have you read about, dreamt about, and researched the wonders of South Africa, but never made it to their shores? Well, all that is about to change.

Because South African Tourism is giving six lucky travel agents the chance to win a spot on a 2018 famil to MEET SOUTH AFRICA.

Holy smokes – everyone be cool!

Ok, but seriously, you’ll explore the hip city of Johannesburg, enjoy pure luxury on a safari where you’ll catch glimpses of the Big Five, and go bananas for South Africa’s breathtaking scenery and coastlines.

This fully hosted famil – courtesy of the good folk at South African Tourism and South African Airways – comes with flights, accommodation, transfers and activities all included, plus most meals and beverages.

We can just hear you shouting, ‘How can I get onto this famil?!’

Easy peasy. Just tell South African Tourism in 25 words or less:

“Why you’d like to Meet South Africa”

Submit your entry HERE.

You’ll also need to register and complete South African Tourism’s SA Specialist online training course (or complete one of the Advanced Experience Modules) prior to 15 December 2017 for your entry to be valid.

So basically, you’re getting upskilled on selling a gorgeous, commission-filled destination AND you’re in with a shot at visiting the dream destination yourself.

*Sigh*, if only we could enter too…
