Glen Afric has a reputation for offering an authentic safari experience close to Joburg. I’d love to enjoy a relaxing, catered break with my wife and enjoy nature at it’s finest without driving too far.

Tracy Kent – 04.10.2022
Enjoying a romantic experience close to home sounds wonderful. Add elephants and sundowners – who could resist ;) ?

Sarah Ramnath – 12.08.2022
Being a freelance writer, I have not travelled at all since the onset of COVID. Last August I lost my beloved sister, and a month later – end of September I lost my son-in-law. Both losses were not COVID related. Losing my son-in-law took a toll on me and my family. I travel every month to spend time with my daughter, as she is taking his death badly. I think I really need this well-deserved break.

Michael Weingartz – 26.07.2022

My best friend (78) & myself (turning 70) were both widowed during Covid.

We have both been left short of money & Glen Afric sounds like just what we both need, and it’s within easy driving distance. Please consider us for this much needed prize.
