UGU South Coast Tourism held a tourism awareness campaign with the KwaNdelu Traditional Council in Umzumbe recently.

The event was attended by traditional headmen, the community and Mabuthela High pupils. Topics covered included highlighting the importance of everyone’s roles as ambassadors.

In addition, safety and awareness elements and the Sunny and Safe campaign was discussed.

“We are proud of this campaign and the fact that it has been adopted by province means we are on the right track,” said Ugu South Coast Tourism CEO, Justin Mackrory.

“It would appear that the community has been hungry for guidelines in this respect and we would like to encourage people to visit our website for more information.”

A great spirit of ubuntu was evident throughout the programme with youth and adults engaging in proceedings. Everyone was issued with luminous wrist bands, ensuring increased road visibility for pedestrians at night.

The campaign launch ended with information about the Kwandelu Eco Cultural Adventure, which is becoming­ an increasingly popular attraction, and which boasts a spectacular forest and magnificent views from where visitors can see a variety of bird species.

The event was made possible by the two tourist guides - Mduduzi Njilo and S.M. Shinga - who recently received their tourist guide badges, with the assistance from Ugu South Coast Tourism.

Similar campaigns in Vulamehlo, Umdoni, Ezinqoleni and the Hibiscus Coast are also planned for the end of June.
