Default Free weekend at top Safari Lodge (in KZN)

I have just taken over marketing at Nambiti, a game reserve with 2 upmarket
lodges. I could put my marketing budget into glossy brochures, a high tech
web site or agents commissions however word of mouth marketing is really the
best way to advertise a new establishment of the quality of Nambiti. While
I would love to invite all I know to come on safari, this is just not

Hence I would like to try "Viral marketing" whereby I will enter you into a
competition for a weekend away (for you and 3 others), valued at over R15
000.00. All I request you to do to enter is to forward this e-mail to three
(yip, just 3) of your friends who are passionate about wildlife, go to game
reserves and want an extra special safari experience. When you forward the
e-mail to your carefully selected friends, just copy me
) and I will enter you into the competition. The
winner will be selected from the xxxx e-mail received and announced on Wed
20th of Oct on the Nambiti web site.

Good luck and I look forward to spending two (2) amazing days with you and
your three (3) friends on the 29th and 30th of October at Nambiti, a rare
find for any bush-lover or soul seeker. If you have any questions please
check below or on the web site or give me a call (082 562 8225).

Thank you for you time.
