We are very excited to announce the winners of our Monkey See, Monkey Do South African family safari contest! David, Chantelle and Ella Grace Kurtis (3) will be heading to South Africa for 10 days courtesy of Africa Adventure Consultants, South African Tourism and South African Airways. David said ‘It’s a dream come true! With a business and a little one – “adventure” often takes a back seat. Thank you to all of our friends and family for voting us into the top 25. In keeping with our theme – send us on our way!!!
The Kurtises winning video features the family impersonating various South African animals in scenes from Florida to Ontario. “We also had footage from Niagara Falls” says David. “There wasn’t a time that we weren’t thinking of this video. We genuinely had a ton of fun making it.”
A special thank you to our panel of judges, which included representatives from Africa Travel at About.com, Family Travel Network, South African Tourism, South African Airways, and some of our own AAC folks.
The contest grand prize includes airfare on South African Airways, a stay at Cape Town’s Radison Blu Hotel Waterfront with family-friendly city tours, two days at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve on the famous Garden Route, and a stay at Etali Safari Lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve for the chance to see South African wildlife up close.
