Season 6

Tropika Island of Treasure 6 returns in a brand new format, shaking things up with a wild, fun and aspirational treasure hunt set on the tropical island of Mauritius.

Unlike past years, where celebrities formed half of the cast, this year six contestants were selected during a six-month call to action period.

Each month one winner was selected to experience "the Tropika Smoooth life", where they were spoilt with a penthouse apartment, featured in DRUM magazine, appeared on Live and RGB and ended the weekend with a VIP party experience thrown in the winner's honour.

After six months the competitive reality show had six contestants vying in physical and mental challenges, tasks and races to win R1-million.


Over the course of six months, Tropika Island of Treasure had a product promotion for consumers of Tropika. Consumers could enter to win airtime prizes and a place as a contestant on the series.

Each contestant was announced on television during the SABC1 magazine show The Real Goboza, with three-minute inserts profiling the winners.
