The early bird catches the worm or more specifically the Big 5 when you’re on safari, and we game viewers were somewhat bleary eyed but nonetheless filled with a growing sense of anticipation as we got ready to go wild in the Kruger. We watched the sunrise and sipped coffee, our group completely captivated by the sounds of the African bush and what was to come. After heading off into Big 5 territory our jeep closed in on a solitary leopard dragging her prey towards a nearby kopjie (small hilltop). Her sleek fur glistened in the light, and her bright eyes were fixated on the surroundings as she surveyed the wilderness for incoming predators.
Awesome experience?!!! Not many parks or reserves can beat the Kruger when it comes to wildlife, and it’s still a major highlight for anyone looking to catch the big cats. One lucky adventurer will now be able to game drive in the national park for FREE, as Acacia Africa a leading adventure travel company, is giving away a 6-day African Insight overland safari as part of its “Go Wild Online” campaign.
From now until the 12th of February, the tour operator will be going in search of the "Acacia Wild Tweep", the competition targeted at fans of South Africa. Anyone who has been to the Rainbow Nation can enter, and applicants don’t need to have travelled on an Acacia tour. The winning safari enthusiast will be judged by some of the best expert Africa bloggers on the net including, AfricaFreak, PlanYourSafari and of course Travelcomments.com.
Before whisking adventurers away to the continent, Acacia will be asking the winning "Wild Tweep" to share their love of South Africa in a 20-minute virtual tweet up on the Africa specialist’s Twitter page. Scheduled to take place on Friday 26 February from 13:00-13:20 (GMT), the winning "Wild Tweep’s" mission will be to answer questions on the Rainbow Nation put forward by the tour operator’s tweeps.
The complete FREE 6-day overland trip includes river cruising on the Chobe River, optional adrenaline activities at the Victoria Falls and of course, Big Five game drives in the Kruger National Park.
