In an effort to develop accessibility to all parts of the South Coast in KwaZulu Natal, Ugu South Coast Tourism (USCT) has launched a user-friendly Explore KZN South Coast.

 CEO of Ugu South Coast Tourism, Phelisa Mangcu, said the app was designed to ensure ease of use while providing locals, tourism businesses and international tourists a wealth of information. “We are involved in a number of initiatives that will promote the many KZN South Coast tourism sites, products and events, one of which is the innovative ‘Explore KZN South Coast’ app,” explained Mangcu. 

The app is available for free download from Google Play and Apple stores. It features more than 200 KZN South Coast tourism products categorised according to ‘See & Do’, ‘Shop’, ‘Eat’, ‘Sleep’ and ‘Must See Attractions’ providing visitors with all the necessary tourism information.

It also offers local tourism businesses a far-reaching marketing platform to drive growth. It uses geo location and GPS so that tourists can easily find their preferred tourism product or locate various sites within the KZN South Coast.

Ugu South Coast Tourism offers a two-tiered membership package, which offers full member accreditation, business development and support as well as marketing exposure. For those who opt for the Classic Membership package, there is further exposure through listing on the app destination site.
