Explore to the full

2017-05-18 06:01

THIS week saw the launch of edition 20 of the Southern Explorer Route Guide which is the official tourism publication for our diverse and captivating destination.

Besides the plethora of beach, adventure, activity, hospitality, retail and nature based options on the coast and inland, this year we have added some unique and innovative touring options.

In the edition are newly incorporated and mapped experiences that can be had in Kwa Nzimakwe, Nyandezulu and the Wild 2 South Coast Walk.

In addition, new Great Drives Out are leisurely loops that include one from Bushy Vales to Shelly Beach via Izingolweni and another from Umzumbe to Batstones Drift via Kwa Dweshula. So often one tends to stick to the main tourist roads and we really encourage locals and visitors to get a copy of the Explorer and sample the sights and good peoples of our immediate rural areas.

A number of committed local practitioners and welcoming emergent enterprises await your support and to host you. This section of the publication also highlights key cultural and entertainment events in the rural areas which are well worth attending.

Talking of exploration, local charter operators, C Freaks, kindly took our tourism interns for a trip out to sea. Some of our future tourism ambassadors had never been off shore before so when one looks at their happy photos of the exciting outing there is no doubt that they will recommend this experience to all and sundry. Many thanks C Freaks.

So on land and at sea a fruit bowl of options is here on our doorstep – please vitalise the spirit in exploring our superb destination to the full- it is ripe for the sampling. Our route guide is also downloadable off our website- www.tourismsouthcoast.co.za

Happy outings in our paradise.
