The ultimate holiday became a reality for Joanne Miller and her partner Brett when they travelled to South Africa recently for an 11 day trip full of luxury and adventure after winning a lucky door prize at the AFTA NTIA Awards.
Courtesy of South African Tourism, South African Airways, Kwandwe Safari Lodge and Boschendal, the couple were treated to an indulgent itinerary that saw them experience the best of what South Africa has to offer.
From exploring the scenic country estates of Boschendal in Franschhoek to setting off on safari drives, the trip was jam-packed full of beautiful scenery and memorable moments. Both Joanne and Brett were blown away by the activities they experienced and the places they visited, particularly the luxurious Great Fish River Lodge in Kwandwe Private Game Reserve.
“Kwandwe was amazing, the accommodation was superb, and the game drives were very different to other game experiences I’ve had in Africa. We came across so many animals including the Big Five and we even encountered an unforgettable and rare experience where we were only a few metres away from a cheetah and her four cubs,” said Joanne.
Yana Shvarts, Marketing and Communications Manager and Acting Country Manager Australasia, was thrilled to hear that Joanne and Brett had such a great time in South Africa.
“It is warming to hear when travellers immerse themselves in the vibrant South African culture and I’m pleased to hear that the couple experienced this first hand. I look forward to welcoming them back in the near future as South Africa always has something more to offer,” said Ms Shvarts.
