Holiday competition winner

2019-04-24 06:01

REUBEN Govender from Northdale is excited to have been selected as a winner of the two-night stay at Tala Game Reserve in Camperdown.

Echo, together with Dream Resorts, ran a competition as part of the publication’s 40th birthday celebrations.

Speaking to Echo, Govender said he is very excited and can’t wait to go on holiday with his wife, Sheren.

“When I first received a call telling me that I had won, I did not believe it — I thought it was a prank. I thought it was someone who knew that I entered the competition playing a prank on me,” he said.

He said he has been talking to his wife about taking a break for a while now, but they have not been able to get away due to some commitments, and this win certainly came at the right time.

“I have been telling her we need to take a break but we never got round to actually doing it.

“I am a Witness newspaper subscriber so I get the Echo every Thursday and read it. When I saw this competition, I told myself I am going to enter.

“I love wildlife and Tala Game Reserve is the ideal holiday for me. I am so excited and this is our time to finally take that break,” he said.
