South Africa’s win­ning ways

The Weekend Post - - News -

HERE’S some­thing to take your mind off end-of-fi­nan­cial-year taxes and cross-eye­in­duc­ing spread­sheets …

Five rea­sons to start plan­ning a trip to South Africa – and we’ll kick off with the best one of all:

1. It’s free: We’re giv­ing you the op­por­tu­nity to win a dream 10-day sa­fari hol­i­day for two.

All you have to do is head to www.cairn­­pe­ti­tions and en­ter your de- tails. Com­pe­ti­tion ends July 8.

2. Wine: Your mind may go straight to the hills of Bordeaux or New Zealand when you first think of wine coun­try, but South Africa’s of­fer­ing is noth­ing to be sneezed at and ev­ery­thing to sniff and swirl.

3. Ad­ven­ture: It’s one of the ad­ven­ture cap­i­tals of the world. There’s hik­ing, sa­faris, bungee jump­ing, raft­ing, moun­tain-bik­ing and more.

4. The Big Five: Lion, leop- ard, rhi­noc­eros, ele­phant and buf­falo – the Big Five game an­i­mals you can watch roam­ing around the na­ture parks of South Africa.

5. Cul­tural melt­ing pot: South Africa’s cul­ture is made up of a unique blend of de­scen­dants from all cor­ners of the globe.

If you’re still not con­vinced, re-read point one. That ought to get your in­spi­ra­tion flow­ing. Win­ner will be drawn July 10.

SEE­ING DOU­BLE: Ze­bra are among the colour­ful in­hab­i­tants found in South Africa’s na­ture parks.
