Survivor South Africa: Santa Carolina[1] is the third season of the South African reality television show Survivor South Africa. With Nico Panagio replacing Mark Bayly as host, the show premiered on 20 January 2010 and aired on Wednesdays for fourteen weeks on M-Net until the ninety-minute live season finale on 21 April 2010. M-Net also commissioned a 15th episode that had a look at the whole series with retrospective views from all the contestants.

The season was filmed on the small island of Santa Carolina, a member of the Bazaruto Archipelago off the southern coast of Mozambique. The castaways (eight women and ten men) lived amongst white sand beaches, coral reefs and buildings left abandoned by the Mozambican Civil War, including a prison and a hotel. The two original tribes were named Chibudu and Timbila, after local Chopi words for "harmony" and "togetherness", and the merged tribe name, Kululama, means "strength."

Several new twists were introduced to the established Survivor formula. In a departure from the first two seasons, the cast was made up entirely of South African celebrities, each of whom was playing the game to raise money for a charity of their choice. The number of castaways was increased to eighteen. Exile Island and the hidden immunity idol were imported from the American version of the show. Also, for the first time the viewing public was able to influence the outcome of the game. The audience was allowed to vote for a winner out of the two finalists via internet or text message voting. The finalist with the most votes received one jury vote.

In the end, 42-year-old exotic dancer and club owner Perle "GiGi" van Schalkwyk was crowned the Sole Survivor in a 6-3 decision over television presenter Ashley Hayden, winning R500,000 for her charity, a Hospice in Johannesburg.

In the case of multiple tribes or castaways who win reward or immunity, they are listed in order of finish, or alphabetically where it was a team effort; where one castaway won and invited others, the invitees are in brackets.

^1 : This challenge was a combined reward and immunity.
^2 : Before the tribes were picked, Craig and Kaseran were chosen to not make the journey to the island with the other contestants. Instead, they were flown to the island and isolated on a beach where they received a clue to a hidden immunity idol.
^3 : After the reward challenge, a contestant from the losing tribe was chosen by the winning tribe to go to Exile Island, where they received a clue to a hidden immunity idol. The exilee also chose someone to be kidnapped from the winning tribe to replace them at their camp until the next immunity challenge.
^4 : This reward challenge was a duel between Izak and Okkert in which they alone represented their tribes and no one else participated.
^5 : Darren played the hidden immunity idol at Timbila's tribal council, and therefore was immune from the vote.
^6 : After the reward challenge, each tribe selected an ambassador to go the other camp, take one item, and steal one castaway permanently onto their own tribe. The two contestants selected to switch tribes were given immunity for this round only.
^7 : Since ProVerb was ranked last in the reward challenge, he was isolated at camp while the rest of the tribe partook in the reward. At camp, he received a clue to a hidden immunity idol.
^8 : After the merge, kidnapping was no longer possible as there was only one tribe.

^9 : Christina voluntarily left the game before tribal council on Day 3 due to homesickness.
^10 : Jub Jub voluntarily left the game before the immunity challenge on Day 6, claiming he needed to seek outside medical attention for his infected penis.
^11 : Since Hanna and Louw tied with five votes each, and neither had previous votes from the Kululama tribe, they participated in a timing tiebreaker challenge. Hanna lost and was therefore eliminated.
^12 : Since Louw and Okkert tied with four votes each, Louw was eliminated due to having five previous votes to Okkert's zero.
^13 : Since Okkert and ProVerb tied with four votes each, Okkert was eliminated due to having four previous votes to ProVerb's zero.
^14 : The viewing public was given the chance to vote for a finalist to win the game by means of internet and/or text message voting. Ashley received the most viewer votes, giving her one jury vote.
