Johannesburg - The future of Gauteng's tourism might very well lie in shopping, according to Unathi Sonwabile Henama, who teaches tourism at Tshwane University of Technology.

In his view, the opening of the Mall of Africa with around 300 stores will make Gauteng the shopping mecca of South Africa.

The Mall of Africa is billed as South Africa’s largest shopping mall ever built in a single phase, with 130 000m2 of retail space available and built by property development company, Atterbury.
