South AfricaSouth Africa is all set to provide more to the local traveler and the seasonal tourists looking for picturesque locales and the hospitality of our people.

 
For Destination South Africa to thrive, it is obligatory on all of us to take notice for the betterment of such offerings and by developing support instruments like mentorship and coaching, incubation and entrepreneur skills training, and facilitating market access and exposure, and via funding and incentives.

 
Back in 2016, we argued the idea of Tourism Business Incubators and two years after we have already set up 4 such incubators in Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga; Phalaborwa, Limpopo; Mier Upington in the Northern Cape and Pilanesberg in Bokone Bophirima.

 
Our SMMEs have witnessed growth in occupancy rates, developed online endorsements for the first time and never-heard-of-before guesthouses are pinning star rating the amenities and thus developing their market share.

 
By now, we have aided 584 small tourism enterprises to contribute in terms of international and domestic trade platform via our Tourism Incentive Programme which initiated in 2015. It has ever since perked up access to international markets for small businesses.

 
Our Grading Support Programme targeted to decrease the cost burden in terms of small tourism enterprises has since 2017 supported 1 529 on through discounts of up to 90% towards their grading assessment fees.
