Tourism KwaZulu-Natal (TKZN) and SATSA are hosting virtual tours showcasing the province’s tourism offerings to global buyers from July 28 to 30.
Through the events, 45 products will have the opportunity to showcase the variety of accommodation, activities and food offerings to up to 75 hosted buyers, to unlock the tourism potential of the region.
“Virtual familiarisations provide a wonderful opportunity for KZN to reach out to our new tourism trade partners so that they can sell our destination to a wider global audience,” said Acting CEO of TKZN Phindile Makwakwa.
“This pandemic has further highlighted the importance of partnerships in tourism and we look forward to an even more enhanced relationship with tour operators and buyers globally to ensure that KZN remains a top-of-mind tourism destination for travellers. The virtual tours will go a long way to showcase the myriad experiences found in the Zulu Kingdom, while reassuring our trade partners that we are indeed ready to welcome their clients back to our shores,” said Makwakwa.
“We at SATSA are proud to partner with Tourism KwaZulu-Natal in fostering regional growth,” said COO of SATSA, Hannelie du Toit.
“At the same time, we are also meeting demand, as stipulated by our overseas trade partners and travellers, for new products and experiences in less-frequented destinations. A win-win scenario.”
The virtual familiarisations will take place as follows:
July 28: Durban, North Coast, South Coast
July 29: Midlands, Drakensberg, Battlefields
July 30: Elephant Coast
