Make the most of your Heritage Day by lighting up your braai and gathering your friends to celebrate Braai Day on 24 September. After all, as South Africans, there will always be one real and meaningful place for us to gather. One place where we truly connect. It’s more than just a fire, for us it’s the celebration of being together and sharing a meal, that makes everything better.
Megamaster’s latest offering, Rhino Balls Eco-Firelighters have remarkable long-lasting and non-toxic properties. This all-natural product will have your fire lit in no time. You could even win a four-day stay at Rockwood’s 5-star luxury lodge, all while saving the endangered rhino.
Cook safely with these balls of fire
These environmentally-friendly firelighters are the perfect braai partner. They’re waterproof, leave no residue, and boast a 17+ minute burning time. Made from rhino dung, the signature key ingredient, wax, and sawdust, with a pure cotton wick, they’re also biodegradable and non-toxic. So they’re suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and safe to cook over. Most importantly, they’re easy to use, so you don’t have to be a braai master to use them. Simply stack your wood or charcoal around the balls to ensure proper air circulation, nonchalantly light the wick, and once your fire is merrily burning away, confidently add more wood or charcoal. Given how uncomplicated it is, you’ll have no problem entering the #RhinoBall challenge where you could win a much-needed holiday.
Make your fire count!
It’s no secret that our success has impacted countless species, but perhaps none more so than the African rhino. Megamaster has teamed up with Rockwood Conservation, who is saving the rhino with an approach they call aggressive conservation. Set against the backdrop of the vast expanse of the Northern Cape veld, Rockwood is a rare haven for over 300 Southern white rhinos. As a highly secure place of hope and survival, they boast state-of-the-art security and 24-hour monitoring, including a battalion of highly-trained mounted rangers to ensure a maximum security environment for the rhino population to expand.
It is from here that the rhino dung is collected and used to make Megamaster’s Rhino Balls Eco-Firelighters. In turn, a percentage goes back to Rockwood, so you’ll save more rhinos with every ball you buy.
Win a luxury lodge experience with an up-close rhino encounter
We call on all braaiers from around the country to show off their fire lighting skills in a bid to win the experience of a lifetime with three friends. Spend four nights at Rockwood’s 5-star luxury lodge nestled in the Northern Cape. Plus, up-close, life-changing rhino encounters (COVID-permitting), where you’ll feed the baby rhinos. Round off the day with a VIP spa treatment, and you’ve got yourself a true luxury escape.
All it takes to enter are your fire-lighting skills and a Rhino Ball. Film yourself lighting your fire with a single match, using just one hand. Upload your video to social media using the #rhinoballs and challenge three friends to take part. It’s that easy if you consider lighting a fire singlehandedly with one match easy, of course. But it shouldn’t be too tricky considering you’ll have a Rhino Ball. Together, we can save our rhino species from extinction, so go on. You know you’ve got the #rhinoballs for a challenge like this.
