Swagman on commercial TV for a good cause

Swagman excited to be on TV for a good cause

Swagman was thrilled recently to appear on the 3rd episode of Channel 10’s popular TV show, Sunday Night Takeaway with Julia Morris and Chris Brown.  Swagman joined forces with South African Tourism & South African Airways to award holiday packages to deserving members of the community during the show’s segment called ‘The Happiest Minute’.   Half-a-dozen people each received a pair of economy-class tickets to South Africa together with the Swagman holiday package ‘Wild Nights & City Lights’, featuring a 6-night stay on a private game reserve, Makutsi Safari Springs, followed by 4 nights’ accommodation in Cape Town including a selection of sightseeing tours.

One of the winners has already travelled and returned, taking to social media to rave about her first, fantastic, experience in Africa, and she can’t wait to return!  The other winners will travel later in the year, and Swagman was honoured to be a partner in the SNT project.  We’re only sorry we couldn’t be in the studio on the night, to meet Ron Moss (Ridge from The Bold and the Beautiful) who presented the boarding passes!

There are 10 standard rooms and 7 luxury rooms overlooking the serene waters of the Crocodile River.   All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, hair dryers, tea & coffee stations, mini-bar fridges and private patios.
