Local establishments scoop provincial awards

2017-10-05 06:01

SOME eight local tourism establishments walked away as the winners at the prestigious Lilizela Provincial Awards held at Hemmingways Casino in East London on September 21.

The Lilizela Provincial Tourism Awards are a national government initiative aimed at promoting tourism transformation, service excellence, entrepreneurship, thri-ving and sustainable tourism.

Tsitsikamma Backpackers walked away as the winners in the Backpacking and Hosteling category, while Storms River Guest Lodge triumphed in the Bed and Breakfast category.

The Sands @ St Francis was crowned the winners in the Guest House category.

For the best country house experience in the Eastern Cape, visit the J-Bay Zebra Lodge which is set to re-open in April 2018 after devastating fires destroyed the lodge earlier this year.

Stormsriver Adventures was named the best esta-blished tour operator.

When it comes to action and adventure, Untouched Adventures is tops. For the best beach experience, be sure to walk the Chokka Trail, while the best scenic beauty can be found at the Baviaanskloof World Heritage Site.

These establishments, along with 40 other Eastern Cape tourism organisations, will now compete for national honours.
