Name South Africa’s Limpopo Province - SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary

Hi - My husband and I made a $10,000US donation to this wonderful organization (SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary) and received a trip for 4 as a thank you gift. We're looking for 2 people to split this contribution, and take the trip with us. Here's their website, full of information and stunning pictures of the location - http://sanwild.org/

Here are the details:

ALL INCLUSIVE TRIP! $5000 Includes Flights for 2 to Johannesburg, South Africa, airport pick up and drop off, 2 weeks accommodation for 2 at SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary including all meals plus visits to surrounding attractions including the Kruger National Park, the Elephant Museum, and Blyde River Canyon. An experience you'll never forget.

Optional day or over-night trips to other tourist destinations such as Mojadji Cycad Reserve, Mac-Mac Falls, Eco-Caves, Bourke's Luck Potholes, God Window, the Pinnacle, Cherry gardens or local tea and coffee plantations can be arranged.

They can also, with prior communication, arrange helicopter trips to Blyde River Canyon.

Situated in South Africa’s Limpopo Province, approximately 60km's from the town of Tzaneen is the SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary.
SanWild’s exclusive Savannah Private Bush Camp has been named after a female leopard rescued in 2003 after hunters trapped her illegally for a canned hunt. The 6000 hectare SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary has introduced numerous rescued and rehabilitated wild animals including impala, kudu, blue wildebeest, red hartebeest, waterbuck, common and mountain reedbuck, Grey duiker, nyala, giraffe, zebras, steenbok, rhinos, hippos and elephants.

Some very elusive and rare creatures like pangolin and aardvark have also chosen of their own accord to make this protected reserve their home. Wild leopard and cheetahs roam freely and a pack of rescued African Wild Dogs will be introduced shortly.
Many small predators like serval, caracal and civets can also be seen in the reserve and the Sanctuary’s large predator Cats’ Rescue centre is home to 19 lions rescued from South Africa’s sordid canned lion breeding and hunting industry.

Some evenings are spent in the open-air boma area where meals can be prepared next to a campfire or you might very well be surprised with a bush supper that is enjoyed in the bush. These special suppers are offered in the wilderness areas of the reserve and the venue is changed regularly to provide a unique and special bush experience.

The camp is completely fenced to keep out SanWild’s large wild animals like elephants, rhinos and hippos.

You do not need a visa for SA if travelling on a US passport.

U.S. citizens (U.S. passport holders) visiting the Republic of South Africa for ninety (90) days or less for tourism / business purposes do not need visas. Foreigners who wish to visit South Africa must have passports / travel documents valid for thirty (30) more days after the intended return date from South Africa.

Might be tax deductible.
