IN which Province is the Sarah Bartmann District?

If you know, you can win a self-drive holiday for 4 people worth more than R28 000 and get a taste of the Karoo, Addo, Sunshine Coast, Jeffreys and St Francis Bay, the Tsitsikamma, Baviaans and Gamtoos Valley. Just visit the Sarah Bartmann Stand at this year’s Johannesburg Getaway Show, at the Coke Cola Dome from August 28 - 30.

The prize includes accommodation and two meals a day, as well as a Karoo farm experience, ziplining, hiking, horse riding, canal cruise, calamari tasting, game drives and a few more surprises.

Leave Gauteng for the Driekwartblou Guest Farm in the Venterstad area and experience life on a Karoo farm. After a late afternoon game drive, enjoy a hearty Karoo dinner before you turn in for the night.

After breakfast, you will visit the Gariep Dam before you bid your new friends farewell over a cup of coffee on the De Stijl Hotel’s stoep.

Depart for Addo in your own time to meet your host Diederick at the Lemon3Lodge.

Your adrenaline fix in Addo is the longest zip-line in Southern Africa, and if you wish, you can visit the Addo National Park. Make sure you reach Port Elizabeth before sunset where you will stay in the Kelway Hotel. The next morning you will enjoy a tour through the city with Mosaic Tourism before you leave for Jeffreys Bay – but take the scenic R102 and visit the Van Stadens Wild Flower Reserve.

In Jeffreys Bay the Tourism office will make sure you visit the Shell and Surf Museum before you sign in for your surf lesson at Supertubes. You will stay at the backpackers, Island Vibe.

Make sure you arrive at the Cape St Francis Resort early enough for a treatment at Hibiscus, their health centre, where you will stay for the night. Supper is in the resident restaurant, Joe Fish.

On day 5 you need to take your hiking boots out, as you will do part of the Chokka Trail. You will hike the rocky shoreline, visit the penguin rehab facility and visit Port St Francis where you will enjoy a calamari tasting. To end the day off, you will enjoy a canal cruise on the famous St Francis canals. You will stay a second night at the Resort.

After an early morning coffee and rusks, you need to depart for Patensie (using the R330) to meet the Gamtoos team for breakfast at Tolbos. Your guide Kobus Kok will take you through the Gamtoos and Baviaans Valleys and dinner and accommodation is at Tia Ghee Tented Camp.

After breakfast at Padlangs, you will drive to Kareedouw where Hercle from Moria Horseback Holidays will treat you on an afternoon horse ride. You will stay for old time’s sake in Kareedouw at Nguniland Guest Farm (with dinner at Norma Jean’s and breakfast at Altelekker) before you start your trip home.

Murraysburg is the ideal halfway stop, where Brandkraal Guest Farm will look after you. Make sure you visit the local church to see the unique pipe organ, one of a kind!

Come prepared, the Adventure Province is waiting to be explored!

Entry forms are available at the Sarah Bartmann stand. The draw will take place at 11:00 on August 31 and the winner will be announce on the 7 Wonders of Our World Facebook Page.
