AT this year’s Duzi 2 Sani 4x4 Expedition under Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality, South Africans were encouraged to visit heritage sites and promote tourism.

The event, which took place last weekend, was supported by the Department of Arts and Culture, Harry Gwala District Municipality and sponsors.

On Friday, the event started at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site in Howick.

Harry Gwala District Municipality Deputy Mayor, Ntuseng Duma, Msunduzi Municipality, Umngeni Local Municipality and government officials were part of the party.

Traditional music, indigenous games, water slides and cheese and wine tasting were some of the activities on day two at Glen Cairn Farm outside Underberg.

Kwaito music and speeches were given at the gala dinner at Sani Pass Hotel on Saturday evening. “The prestigious event was launched four years ago and is getting a lot of support from sponsors and people. Next year the event will be more attractive because we will be celebrating our fifth anniversary,” said Duma.

Andile Zwezwe from Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality said the event has contributed to the local economy as it attracted lots of visitors nationwide.

“This event will unveil places that people can visit to experience our inland beauty. We also host the event for local entrepreneurs to showcase their business,” said Zwezwe.

On Sunday 4x4 vehicles transported the tour party to the Sani Mountain Lodge in Lesotho where lunch was enjoyed before visiting Lesotho.

Village residents who live next to Sani River sang traditional songs as visitors sampled homemade bread and bought traditional hats.
