NELSON Mandela Bay Tourism last week welcomed the addition of Segway Beachfront Tours and Black Impala Tshisa Nyama to increase the variety of offerings to be launched ahead of the summer holiday season.

The Segway, which is an electric, noise- free, eco-friendly, self-balancing scooter and incredibly fun and easy to ride, will offer visitors and locals a fun excursion along the beachfront promenade for all ages to enjoy.

The guided Segway fun rides and tours have four routes along the beachfront between Kings Beach and Summerstrand on offer, as well as three exciting forest park routes in Happy Valley.

Councillor Andrew Whitfield of Economic Development, Agriculture and Tourism said tourism is one of the industries with the greatest contribution to the GDP of the country and furthermore, stimulates and sustains the contribution to the local economy.

“With each new attraction or activity comes employment opportunity. For each permanent job opportunity there are also indirect benefits which filter through to the transport, agriculture and other sectors,” Whitfield said.

A modern and stylish tshisha nyama, Black Impala has also opened in Deal Party to boost the local cultural cuisine offerings.

NMB Tourism will add this new establishment to the list of authentic and new experiences on offer in the Bay.

Black Impala is a barbecue restro bar and venue focusing on Afro foods, braai meat, salads and stews with other menu items to make sure one is fully catered for at affordable prices.

NMB Tourism CEO Mandlakazi Skefile said the increase of tourism product offerings in Nelson Mandela Bay and the choice of experiences on offer will ensure to keep the family entertained this summer.

“An entertaining and attractive destination will facilitate to increase the length of stay of visitors and economic contribution to the tourism sector,” Skefile said.

Prices for the activities are from R300 per person and a special offer for children of R250 per person.
