It’s been a busy few months in the uThungulu Tourism Department, with the recent launch of the new District Tourism Association, unveiling of the Mobile Information Office as well ongoing growth and development with the Zulu Coast Film Office and Zululand Heritage Route (Route66).
Although many of these projects are focused on tourism development and product development, the cornerstone of the uThungulu Tourism Master Plan, a lot of work is also in the pipeline that focuses on marketing the district, with particular emphasis on giving tourists the services and information they require.
To this end, uThungulu District Municipality is currently working on some exciting marketing projects, these include
A new tourism website for the district, this website will become a portal for all information and resources a tourist could possibly want when visiting the region and includes profiling of all product owners in the region
A new Children’s Tourist Map has also just been unveiled, this map is focused on identifying activities and destinations that are fun for the whole family, which is certainly an important consideration with school holidays and the festive season on our doorstep. Copies of these brochures can be sourced from the uThungulu District Municipality Tourism Department.
Finally, the Adventure Tourism Brochure is in its final stages of preparation. uThungulu is a major destination for adventure tourism, from Rock Climbing at Ongoye Forest to Kite Surfing in Richards Bay. Sporting related tourism has a huge following and value in the area. If you have any products or activities that you would like included in this brochure, please contact Anushka Makka on firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a lot happening and even more in the pipeline for 2012, so watch this space and join us in making the region the tourism hotspot it deserves to be!
