To celebrate the 90th birthdays of both the Kruger National Park and WESSA, a special photo competition is offering amazing prizes.

Picture the mystical fever tree forests in Kruger’s Pafuri region, a part of the park where visitors are few and the sense of wilderness is strong. Now picture yourself enjoying this wonderland from the secluded and luxurious Pafuri Border Camp. Interested yet? Enter WESSA’s Photographic Competition and you could win this Kruger holiday, or a stay at WESSA’s Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve.

WESSA-PhotoCompetitionThis year both the Kruger National Park and WESSA (the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa) are celebrating their 90th birthdays. To commemorate the milestone, they are running a photo competition, open to both amateur and technically advanced photographers. The winner of the amateur category will win four nights at the Pafuri Border Camp in Kruger, a Wild Card and a new daypack from Cape Union Mart. The advanced winner will receive a three-night stay at Umgeni where they’ll be able to participate in a guided nature walk and zip lining.

The theme of the contest is “celebrating our natural environment” and submissions can portray the wildlife and wilderness of any South African setting. While the amateur category winner will be chosen through a vote on WESSA’s social media, the advanced category will be judged by South African photographers Grant Atkinson and Chris Fallows. Submit one of your old favourites, or use the contest as an excuse to explore that national park you’ve been meaning to. The competition runs until 31 August, so get outside and start photographing!
