Welcome to Survivor South Africa: Immunity Island S8

Local 03 May 2021

20 Castaways are on SA’s Wild Coast, ready to outwit, outplay and outlast in Survivor South Africa: Immunity Island S8. Hear them roar!

8 Is the greatest… Survivor South Africa season yet.

On Thursday, 3 June, host Nico Panagio (looking bush-ready in a khaki shirt and cap) returns to welcome 20 new Castaways to South Africa’s remote Wild Coast bush in the Eastern Cape, where they will battle to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in its jungles and beaches over the course of 39 days, in Survivor South Africa: Immunity Island S8.

There are snakes and skulls everywhere. The Tribal Council area features the gnarled and bleached remains of ancient trees and driftwood, with skulls scattered about, including this season’s symbol, a realistic, woven vegetable fibre skull with a metal snake slithering above the top and through the eye sockets. The urn that’ll contain the contestants’ votes has handles in the shape of a snake’s body. And the Survivors’ torches are topped with a snake wrapped around a skull, with the snake looping through the eye sockets. The hiss of death awaits around every corner with these ruthless Castaways.

It’s sure to be an interesting season as the field is packed with strategic-minded players. While only 1 of the men has listed being underestimated as part of his strategy, 4 of the women have worked it into their gameplan, so we’ll see how that works out for them. There are clowns and rogues, a pirate, a man who is apparently also a box, a poppie, a guy who’s like water and more. If you’re confused… keep reading. It’s time to meet this season’s Survivors as they let their egos run wild.
