A catalyst for tourism growth and development in South Africa.
As a strategy focused department, we are committed to creating a conducive environment for growing and developing tourism through:
#HumanRights – The quaint town of Cradock in the Eastern Cape Province
can proudly count itself amongst
hidden gems that boast a prestigious tourism offering that is intrinsically linked to South Africa’s liberation - heritage following the launch of the Cradock 4 Garden of Remembrance memorial.
The Cradock 4 Garden of Remembrance embraces the historic memoirs of anti-apartheid activists Matthew Goniwe, Sicelo Mhlawuli, Sparrow Mkhonto, and Fort Calata. Tourism’s infrastructure improvements at the site will enable the community to host educational and cultural activities that facilitate information sharing, and celebrate the legacy of the four activists.
The Iconic Map of Africa Monument at the Southernmost Tip of Africa is one of the infrastructure features commissioned and developed at the Agulhas National Park by the Department of Tourism in collaboration with South African National Parks (SANParks), to enhance visitor experience and boost the local tourism economy.
