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:
here as Government to get our communities out of their houses, to visit areas
of attraction that are within their Municipalities and Provinces. We believe
that by word of mouth and using gadgets, we can create a circle of family
friends where you share information on tourist attraction. One may then ask;
how do we get out of the house now that we are in Alert Level 1?
As we gradually open up our borders
for international travel in accordance with the global pandemic risk
levels, we will complement this with an aggressive international
marketing strategy that will be implemented in partnership with the
private sector. More business and jobs will be recovered when
international travel goes to full recovery.
The visit to the District Municipality
follows a commitment made by the Department on World Tourism Day (27
September 2020) to leverage, amongst others, on its Rural Tourism
Development Strategy to revive the domestic travel market.
