africa-photos-284You guys aren’t going to fucking believe this, but I found out yesterday that the video I scripted, acted in, directed, half-shot and edited for the Nandos “How Far Will You Go” campaign fucking won!

I got the call yesterday from someone who introduced herself as a person handling Nandos communications, at which point I thought, “Thank fuck! They’re finally gonna give me the free meal vouchers they owe me” because I’m poor and I could really use some free food.

Then she tells me she has good news for me and I immediately think “YES! Chicken dinner tonight bitches!” but then she tells me I’ve won a R20 000 holiday anywhere in Africa and I instantly lose my shit completely!

So I guess the big question now is, where the hell do I go?! In a few days time a travel agent is going to contact me and send all kinds of options through for different travel packages all over Africa. It’s fucking crazy, the way I understand it all I have to do is pick and choose the packages I want that add up to R20k, book some leave and unleash myself on the continent!



So help me out here guys, the only place in Africa I’ve ever visited is Swaziland, that’s IT. Where would you go if you had a R20k travel budget?

I hear ZANZIBAR is fucking sick. I just like saying the word – ZANZIBAR!

Leave suggestions in the comments or hit me on tellthetiger@gmail.com.

You gotta love this crazy fucked up thing called life. Run around hungover with your underpants on the outside the one day and you’re jetting off across Africa the next.

Here’s the video I submitted if you’re wondering what the hell that last sentence means:



A HUGE thanks to my loving girlfriend J-Rab and Jennyjenjen for helping me turn that fucking weird idea for an ad into a reality. You guys rock, I seriously couldn’t have done it without you.

Have a killer weekend party people. If anyone’s heading through to Assembly tonight, come hunt me down for a celebratory drink or five Winking smile

    Nice one toigah!

    I had a good time in Senegal despite the 16 injections that the travel clinic tried to give me before I left. I’m also sure I saw a dancing stack of hay over there, but it might’ve just been the malaria medicine making me hallucinate.

    Actually, I’m sure Zanzibar will fucken rock. Otherwise you could have a pretty posh time of it in Mozambique for 20k.

      Dancing hay stacks FTW brother! I need to get my hands on THAT shit dude, “The Tiger Trips Balls In Africa” – awesome blog post in the making right there…

      But thanks for the props man, I’m super stoked about this, Nandos has made me brand loyal FOR LIFE!

    Slick. Zanzibar is rad but you can go there anytime. Its around the corner. Go somewhere interesting like Morocco, the Seychelles or if you’re feeling really adventurous somewhere like Kenya to watch the wildebeest migration or to climb Kilimanjaro.

    And by the way. Congratu-fuckin-lations! I think this is the first time in my life where the guy I voted for actually won!

    Slick, you da man!

      Hahaha! I should run for president 😉
      Thanks my man, I tell ya, J-Rab and I are so excited dude, we got some bubbly on ice for tonight and to be perfectly honest, life couldn’t be better (I also won an iPad 2 recently, how fucking INSANE is that?!?)
      I think I’m gonna mix it up. Been looking at a whole lot of travel packages and if we plan this right we might be able to squeeze two trips into the R20k. So make the first one a proper “hiking in the fucking jungle with a gigantic KNIFE” trip and make the second one a “chilling in a sick little bungalow by the beach” kinda vibe.
      You back in SA yet? What’s news? Mail me!

    Congratulations buddy. What a sick prize.

    I went to Egypt, loved it.

    • July 29, 2011 at 11:15 am

      Damn, I hadn’t even thought of that, hahahaha!
      What a badass idea, I’ll look into Egypt…

        Yeh, although the recent political climate might be enough to discourage anyone from Holidaying there. Although, Dahab and the Blue Hole is probably the most relaxing places on earth.

    Hey awesome prize conrats, could do with a lil something like that right now.
    We went to Morocco 3 years ago which was an awesome holiday. Not everyones cup of tea but if you want to expeience a totally different world and are open to other cultures (99% muslim) which i am sure you are, then its definitely worth looking at. Its a holiday you would never forget.
    Another closer to home option is Botswana and the Okavango Delta which is the most wild and beautiful place i have visited.
    I guess that where ever you go its going to be radical, FREE holiday how can that not be!!

    • August 2, 2011 at 8:55 am

      Morocco has actually come up once or twice when J-Rab and I have been looking over different options, but the Okavango Delta is something we haven’t thought about at all. I’ve heard great things though – J-Rab would go nuts for all the wildlife there!

      All I know is we won’t decide on anything until we’ve reviewed every possible option cause like you said FREE HOLIDAY! You gotta make that shit count 😉
