It’s not only people directly employed in tourism sector who helped visitors have a memorable holiday, said Sihle Zikalala, the MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs. Ordinary people assisting tourists with directions, working at restaurants, taxi drivers and street vendors also play a pivotal part.

The Tourism Month campaign, “Do KZN”, aims to encourage people of KZN to explore their province. Tourism KZN has joined hands with South African DJs Sphesihle Ngwenya and Lebohang Naves, known as the “Kings of the weekend, DJs Sphe and Naves” to roll out the campaign. They will explore key tourism attractions around the province during the month to encourage people to do the same.

The MEC will also host the provincial Lilizela Tourism Awards at the uMhlathuze Municipality next Thursday. It will recognize tourism players who deliver excellent service to visitors. In Durban, Tourism Month will start with the Shisa Nyama Festival at Eyadini Lounge in uMlazi on Saturday when more than 5000 people will enjoy local flavours with KZN’s best open-flame chefs cooking side-by-side to decide who makes the best shisa nyama in Durban. There are also various other events to be celebrated across the city.
