“You will not find another like this book, it is a symbol of innovation and patriotism like no other. It is special and was done for the love of our country, to show the world what South Africa has to offer in term of tourism.”

He added that the book would be a key resource in teaching.

“Some children will never have the opportunity to visit these places due to poverty so this is our way of exposing them to the beauties of our country as well.”

Addressing guests, Tarzan said the book took a lot of time and energy to compile.

“This idea was that of a friend of mine Sanjay Ragubeer who has returned to his home in Mauritius. We decided to make this idea a reality and together the boys and I set out travelling the country, photographing the amazing tourist destinations South Africa has to offer.”

Naicker said the book will serve as a tool in education, and will be a catalyst for economic growth through tourism.

“We want to promote tourism and boost our economy and show the world what captivating beauty South Africa has to offer. We cannot sit back and wait for things to happen, we have to make it happen.”

He added that the book took a long time in the making due to a snag in financing and then a personal tragedy however, the dream was resumed in honour of Mikailan.

“He was so enthusiastic about this book and really wanted to make it happen.

This is why we got up and started on it again. It was not easy but the final product is a sight to behold.”

Tarzan also thanked all those who assisted in making the book a reality for their support during the past few years.

Preveshan said the book would be available at multiple booksellers, locally and nationally.

“Our aim is to get the book in every store, airport, school, municipality, waiting room, travel agency, basically everywhere books can be found.”

Pillay congratulated the Naickers on their achievement, saying the book is an important contribution to the economy of South Africa.

“I am glad that book does not just focus on KZN but on South Africa as a whole. It is a true inspiration to see what you all have drawn out of adversity.”

Guests were able to buy the book at the event and have it signed as well.

The book will sell for R385 with 3D glasses included.

The book is also now available on Takealot and Bid or Buy.
