Tourism KwaZulu-Natal (TKZN) in partnership with Ugu South Coast Tourism are gearing up for a bumper summer and getting ready to welcome travellers to the Paradise of the Zulu Kingdom. South Africa’s number one tourism destination is on a robust destination promotion campaign to drive even more travellers into the province ahead of the summer season.


Outlining the province’s Recovery Plan, Pinky Radebe, Senior Manager Public Relations and Communications at Tourism KZN said “Tourist numbers have dropped drastically compared to previous years due to the impact of the Covid19 pandemic. Even though KZN is back as South Africa’s number one domestic tourism destination, our plan is really to position KZN as the only summer destination for the domestic market. Therefore, we are working very closely with all tourism regions to showcase our tourism offerings to key media and influencers to get people excited to travel to KZN once again”


With this in mind, Tourism KZN hosted media personalities from Cape Town which included Ryle de Morny and Jamie Domberg, presenters of the Expresso Morning Show on SABC 3 as well as Lunga Singama, Dylan Majavie and Kim-Lee Schuller radio presenters from the Cape Town Regional Station Heart FM.


Ugu South Coast Tourism, Manager: Trade Relations Vanessa Gounden said “South Coast is still very much a favourite for the people of KZN and for those who have holiday homes in the South Coast, mostly from Gauteng.  However, we do want to broaden our market and get more travellers from in-land provinces as well as the Western Cape. So, this was a perfect collaboration for us.’


The hosted media personalities were on point sharing all their experiences with their social media followers and doing live crossings on radio throughout their stay in the South Coast.


“In today’s time, social media is a very powerful tool, and we are confident that after this week’s activities, we will begin to see more and more Capetonians enjoying the Paradise of the Zulu Kingdom “concluded Gounden.


The South Coast is a dream destination for adrenalin junkies and the hosted guests were not disappointed.


Ryle de Morny aka Nature Boy, presenter on the Expresso Morning Show said “KZN steals a huge piece of my heart every time I visit, and it truly never disappoints. I don’t even know what’s my favourite adventure activity at this point but for this experience, its possibly a tie between the highest gorge swing at Wild 5 and the Ocean Safari in Shelly Beach.”


Fellow Expresso presenter, Jamie Domburg enthusiastically said “For me, it’s definitely the horse ride along the beach at Selsdon Park Estate. My biggest problem right now is I don’t know whether to come back here with my son or my girlfriends.”


To see everything that the gang got up to this past weekend in the South Coast, tune in on the Expresso Morning Show on the 09th of November 2021.
