Survivor: South Africa is the third season of Matt's Survivor Series.  It premiered on March 14, 2013.  The season was filmed in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The sixteen contestants, referred to as "castaways", were originally split up into two tribes of eight.  The tribe names were Nguni and Khoikhoi, which are names of African tribes.  The merged tribe was named by the ten castaways who made the merge.  It was named Mshindi, which means winner in Swahili.  After 39 days of competition, Ricky Oliver was given the title of Sole Survivor, defeating Jessie Preston in a 5-2 vote.

Ashton Tanner was awarded the $100,000 Verizon Player of the Season  prize, receiving 44% of the vote, while Ava Lewis and Ricky Oliver came in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

Preston, Tanner, and Kane Evans returned to compete in Survivor: All-Stars.  They placed 3rd, 7th, and 15th respectively.










Castaways

There were sixteen people, known as "castaways", that were divided into two tribes, Nguni and Khoikhoi. After six castaways were voted out, the ten left merged into one tribe, Mshindi. Seven castaways made up the jury, who ultimately decided who would win the game and the title of Sole Survivor.
