Tourist arrivals continue to grow

Posted on by

first_img6 September 2010Foreign visitors to South Africa increased by more than 350 000 in the first four months of this year compared to the same period in 2009, says Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk.Speaking ahead of the launch of Tourism Month last week, Van Schalkwyk said that from January to April this year, foreign arrivals totalled more than 2.5-million, compared to approximately 2.2-million in 2009, representing a growth of 16.3 percent.“Our foreign arrivals continue to reflect the consistent growth of our tourism industry, and I have no doubt that 2010 is going to be a very successful year,” he said.Domestic tourism“We have always understood, however, that the backbone of any tourism industry is its domestic market. We will continue to promote the richness of our destination to South African travellers, and during Tourism Month we have a particular focus on showcasing our local tourism offerings,” he said.Approximately 14.6-million adult South Africans undertook about 30-million domestic trips in 2009, with a total annual spend of more than R22-billion. In 2009, 75 percent of all tourist volume in South Africa was derived from domestic tourists, making it by far the biggest segment of the industry.Van Schalkwyk said the figures were also less volatile than foreign tourism and offered the industry and the country’s economy a steady income stream.“South African Tourism’s Sho’t Left campaign is specifically aimed at making travelling more accessible and affordable for all South Africans. Over the last six years we have invested approximately R70-million … underlining the fact that we are serious about strengthening domestic tourism as the foundation of our industry.”South Africa will also commemorate World Tourism Day on 27 September, this year’s theme being “Tourism and Biodiversity”.“In South Africa, the majority of our tourism offerings are rich in biodiversity,” said South African Tourism CEO Thandiwe January Maclean.” It is important for each and every South African to preserve this in order to ensure that we have a sustainable tourism offering.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

South African rowers shine at Olympics

Posted on by

first_img1 August 2012While Chad le Clos grabbed South Africa’s second gold medal in the swimming pool at the 2012 London Olympic Games on Tuesday night, some other South Africans put in good performances on the first two days of the week.The most impressive of those came on Tuesday afternoon from the men’s lightweight fours rowing team of Matthew Brittain, Lawrence Ndlovu, John Smith, James Thompson.They secured a place in the A final after a strong performance over the 2 000 metres distance in very testing, rainy conditions at Eton Dorney.Early goingDenmark, with four-time Olympic medallist and six-time world champion Eskild Ebbesen in their four, started strongly and forged an early lead, with South Africa in second place and world champions, Australia, in third. France, Italy and China filled the following three places.Australia made a move near the halfway mark to edge ahead of South Africa, as the two teams closed the gap on the Danes.Then, with 500 metres remaining, South Africa made a strong push, overhauling the world champions to finish less than a second behind Denmark.Having proved to be one of the six top teams in the world, the crew from Pretoria University has a decent opportunity to add to South Africa’s medal haul on Thursday.FinalApart from the Danes and the Aussies, they’ll be up against hosts Great Britain, Switzerland and the Netherlands in the final.Gideon Louw, competing in the 100 metres freestyle, qualified for the semi-finals with the second-fastest time, a career best 48.29 seconds, despite having the second-slowest starting time out of all the swimmers contesting the event.Unfortunately, in the semis, his start was even worse than in the heats and he faced an uphill battle to make the final.Louw showed great speed to close down some of the ground he had lost at the start, but his time of 48.44 seconds meant he missed out on the title-decider by a single place.Proud exitSouth Africa’s women’s football team, Banyana Banyana, after two defeats, exited the Games proudly after holding Japan to a goalless draw.The Japanese, at number three in the world, were the highest ranked of the teams in South Africa’s pool, which also included world number four Sweden and world number seven Canada.The country’s men’s and women’s hockey teams found the going tough. The men were beaten 6-0 by world number one Australia, while the women fell 4-1 to New Zealand after a disappointing performance.Gideon van Zyl appeared to be well on top of Rustam Orujov of Azerbaijan before losing by ippon in the under-73 kilogram division of the judo competition.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
