Meet Our Winning Wild Tweep & Join The South Africa Tweet Up This Friday!!!

Sharyne Davis Baser is our winning Wild Tweep! So we’d like to send out our safari-tastic congratulations and a BIG thanks to all our expert judges including, and!

A real traveller who can’t get enough of the Rainbow Nation, Sharyne’s travel motto is: “It’s a big, wonderful world out there; start exploring!”…and now’s your chance to quiz her on all things South Africa! On her previous trips Sharyne has visited Cape Town, Sabi Sabi Bogani and Jo’berg’s suburbs – her advice for anyone travelling to the country, to simply “GO!”

Sharyne will be our Editor-at-Large for a whole 20 minutes so feel free to send those South Africa queries down the Twitter line!

If you’re just buzzing about South Africa come and join us on the Acacia Africa Twitter page this Friday the 26th of Feb from 13:00-13:20 GMT...and tweet away with your questions. PLEASE ADD #WildTweep at the start of all your tweets during the event and if you’re sending SA questions/SA tweet tips pre-tweet up. Pictures, links, vids - just Go Wild Online!

Here’s one question from to get you started!

#WildTweep Why do you think open vehicles are allowed in SA but not in East-African national parks?

We’ll leave you with Sharyne’s top three most memorable moments in South Africa to get you in the mood for our Rainbow Nation tweet up:

1. Before breakfast, a leopard walked along-side our stopped open-air vehicle!

2. Going to a village outside of Bogani, in that open vehicle, our driver, my friend and I were riding slow as people (adults and children) would smile and wave to us. No one asked for money, they just smiled and waved like we were celebrities, even the kids at a soccer game – it brought tears to my eyes.

3. Our open-air vehicle stopped in the middle of a herd of Cape Buffalo, I could have touched them, we were that close!!!

An adventurer who is clearly in love with the Rainbow Nation, Sharyne will also be heading off with us on our 6-day African Insight overland tour, featuring some awesome game viewing in the Kruger National Park.
