WIN! A trip to KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, worth over £9,400

Closing date: 31 Oct 2019

KwaZulu-Natal’s winding roads are the perfect setting for a road trip: a place where animals kick dust at your windscreen before disappearing into the African bush. Now, thanks to Imagine Travel, you could experience this first-hand with the chance to win an eight-night self-drive for two in KwaZulu-Natal, including Club World flights with British Airways.

Fly into Durban’s airport to pick up your car, then drive north-west for three hours to see the Drakensberg Mountains tearing across the sky. Hike or horse ride into the peaks, or try rock climbing, kayaking and rafting.

From here, drive up to the Battlefield of Isandlwana, three hours away. This was where, in 1879, the British Military suffered one of its biggest defeats ever. Now, white-washed soldiers’ graves mark the battlefield, where you can take a guided tour for an insight into South Africa’s history.

After a few nights here, hop back into your car and drive north-east to the heart of Zululand to enjoy an exciting safari in an exclusive private game reserve. Among the green-drenched mountains and vast wetlands, there’s a good chance of seeing the Big Five, as well as a huge variety of colourful birdlife.

Finish your trip back in Durban, where you can wander the atmospheric markets, walk around the gardens or try the local favourite, bunny chow – an Indian-inspired curry served in a hollowed-out loaf of bread.
