Umvoti Community Tourism Organisation

2017-03-29 06:03

UMVOTI has so much potential to attract tourists that the Umvoti Community Tourism Organisation has appointed two candidates to organise and promote tourism in the area.

The two are Thomas Bongani Hart, highly qualified in media and communication, and the founder of Expeditionists, and Sabelo Mkhize from Umvoti.

They will be working on various duties including:

• updating existing databases to include all interested parties, tourist attractions, facilities and amenities in and around Greytown, updating websites and using social media;

• liaising with organisers of all events in Greytown - mountain bike classic, golf competitions, motorbike rallies, Jacob Zuma Marathon – to assist and promote;

• investigating what funding is available from the municipality, district municipality, tourism associations, government, Lotto and any other sources, investigate funding models of other tourism organisations and draft a funding proposal; and

• drawing up proposals to encourage visitors from the interior to go through Greytown to get to the airport and the Dolphin Coast and marketing the R74 route.

Contact Hart on 076 688 6719, email and Mkhize on 084 363 2530, email sizwemkhize95@yahoo. com They will be visiting all tourism entities in the near future so please offer them a warm welcome.
