From your bedroom window at Table Bay Hotel, watch the golden morning light illuminate South Africa's most mesmerising landmark. Set on Cape Town's V&A Waterfront, the hotel was opened by another of the country's icons, Nelson Mandela, and forms part of the SunLux Collection's Golden Triangle portfolio. For an eye-opening tour of Southern Africa, continue to the Royal Livingstone in Zambia, where all bedrooms have a private terrace overlooking the Zambezi River, then The Palace of the Lost City in Sun City, where attractions include safari, a vast maze and Nile crocodiles lurking near the 13th hole on the golf course.
Enter this month's Where Are You? competition and you could win a six-night holiday with the SunLux Collection, staying two nights at each of the three hotels mentioned above. The prize, worth £3,300, includes accommodation on a bed-and-breakfast basis, as well as flights from London to Johannesburg and transfers.

Clue: Seeing really is believing when it comes to this otherworldly geothermal feature, shot by intrepid aerial photogapher Yann Arthur-Bernard from a helicopter and included in an exhibition that circumnavigated the world. While the spectrum of colours - fading from cerulean at its centre through radiant yellow to muddy russet in its shallows - mystified tribes and 19th-century fur trappers, modern science informs us that the rainbow effect is the result of colonies of different pigmented bacteria that live in the waters.
But this is no colourful bubble bath: the 370-metre-wide pool is created by hundreds of gallons of boiling water that surge from a fissure in the earth's crust each minute. The site can be found in a wide, treeless valley atop swelling subterranean lava vats that vent through billowing geysers, and was described by one famous chronicler of the British Raj as 'Hell's Half Acre'.
But far from deterring visitors, the devilishly sulphurous and seismically active landscape attracts more than three million visitors each year. Established as a national park in 1872, the 3,472 square miles of mountainous terrain is also home to Jurassic fossils and a bison reserve. Where are you?

To enter, identify the national park and the geological feature in the photograph.

Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone national park, Wyoming, United States (44°27’ N, 110°51’ W).
Yellowstone is the first and oldest national park in the world. It was created in 1872 and is located on a volcanic plateau that sits astride Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Whilst the United States were conquering the “American Old West “ and slaughtering the last bison, some people had inkling that nature needed to be protected. It draws 3 million visitors a year.
