Even though most of us can’t travel right now, that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped dreaming about our next holiday. Even better if that holiday was free. So here are some travel competitions to make that dream a reality.

All competitions require you to provide at least your name and email address. You should expect future emails from the sponsor and probably their ‘trusted partners’ forever after!

Win a Safari in South Africa

This competition, from Doculife, is open to residents of USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand; Canada, South Africa, Ireland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, India, Finland, Mexico, except where local laws prohibit. But weirdly you can’t enter if yo are from Florida, New York, Rhode Island in the USA; ACT, Northern Territory and Southern Australia in Australia and Quebec in Canada.

To enter you need to register for Doculife. Having registered, I’m still not quite sure what Doculife is, nor why you would want to use it – the website is a shambles. I subsequently received daily emails from Doculife, but was able to unsubscribe.

The prize appears very good. A 7-day stay for two at South Africa’s newest most luxurious bush resort, Oase by 7 Star Lodges. All meals and drinks included. Flights to and from Johannesburg’s Oliver Tambo International Airport in South Africa. Overnight stay in Johannesburg on arrival and departure (where applicable). Flights to and from Hoedspruit (Eastgate Airport). Transfers from the airport to the lodge and back. Game Drives using the Oase Lodge’s 4×4 vehicle. Guided walks inside the resort. Private bush dinner. Doculife say the prize value is 10,000 USD.

Entries close 24th May 2021 and the holiday must be taken between 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022.
