WIN a trip to find Tiger cubs with Nokia & Tech Girl!

So a few months ago Nokia launched their Project Come Closer campaign. The idea was that you submitted your favourite photo memory and, if selected, the folks at Nokia would use their fab Lumias to recapture the snap. Yup, they’d recreate the memory and even reunite you with long last friends in the photo. Part of the campaign included a #MediaMemories competition which I (Sam, the editor of this here internet space) won.

Of course, I had no interest in humans but wanted to be reconnected with this little dude:



Armed with a Lumia, I’m off to find my tiger cub and figure the more explorers with me the better! The rad folks at Nokia agree and think you need to come along. Here’s how it is going to work, you and a friend/boyfriend/significant other/sibling/strange person you take along on trips stand the chance to win a weekend away to this gorgeous little piece of heaven:

The Hyatt Regency Oubaai Resort & Spa. Pretty snazzy right?

The catch? I’m coming along… and we’re hunting for tigers (there is a host of other fun stuff we’ll be doing as well but at some point we’re all cuddling tiger cubs. Not a bad deal I think!)
