About our Sponsors

Our competitions would be pretty boring without the amazing prizes we offer, and those prizes would not be possible without the help of sponsors like these:

Protea Hotels

From a portfolio of four hotels in 1984, Protea Hotels has expanded rapidly and is today the largest hotel group in terms of numbers of hotels in Africa, with the most extensive network. It has management and franchise agreements, as well as several joint ventures, with over 100 hotels. These are spread throughout South Africa, as well as Tanzania, Malawi, Nigeria, Namibia & Zambia. Negotiations are currently taking place regarding Protea’s expansion into other African regions on both the East and West Coasts of Africa – areas where Protea has a distinct trading advantage.

The partnership concept has worked well and has enabled Protea to help people grow through the organisation and to develop a dynamic corporate culture which, in turn, forms the platform of its future growth.

Key to this growth will be our ability to empower those around us. Many people have been marginalised due to circumstances beyond their control. We are going to assist in the creation of the kind of future that our children will be proud to live in one day.
