Despite a dramatic fall in the strength of sterling after Britain voted to leave the European Union (EU), South Africa is confident that this will not affect the number of British tourists visiting South Africa in the near term.
SA Tourism UK Country Head Tolene Van Der Merwe, while speaking at one of the world’s biggest trade shows for the tourism sector, says South Africa continues to be great value for money for British tourists.
Van Der Merwe said: “We’ve just got to keep with our message of you can come to South Africa and you can actually do all your bucket list within the country from hard adventure to soft adventure.
“You can come to South Africa and have a good three-course meal with an excellent bottle of wine for less than you what can do a pub lunch here and you can come and experience our wildlife and still come face to face with sharks.”
South Africa experienced an 11 per cent rise in the number of British tourists year on year from January to August and tourism operators were reporting strong bookings through 2017, she said.
