Nothing beats the South Coast
These incredible speed-marketing sessions are a huge investment for SAT, SATSA and the South Coast Tourism Authority, bringing about awareness and promoting new and exciting additions to the tourism industry.
The South Coast not only offers the tranquility one can expect from a coastal area but unique tourist attractions, exhilarating adventures, high-end accommodation outlets and many activities that will allow you to truly immerse yourself in this region of Kwa-Zulu Natal. SATSA Accredited Tour Operators got to experience this piece of paradise for themselves and their experience was nothing short of amazing.
Over a two-day period, the speed-marketing sessions allowed local tour operators to share knowledge, build relationships and add value to the tourism industry while discovering, exploring, and taking in the wonders of magnificent locations.
The first session on day one was held at the luxurious Selbourne Hotel, Spa & Golf Estate, nestled in the heart of the South Coast. It’s an ideal venue for golfers, holidaymakers and businessmen. Members from Umdoni, Scottburgh, Pennington and Hibberdene attended. Umthunzi | Hotel and Conference Centre proved to be the perfect choice for the second session. Winner of many accolades including a Lilizela Award for being voted number one in the Best 3star Hotel category, The Umthunzi Hotel & Conference deserves all the praise it gets. Tour operators were then taken to The Blue Marlin in Scottburgh, an exceptional establishment with stunning views of the ocean, for a site inspection.
Day two of the speed-marketing sessions was held on KwaZulu-Natal’s largest farm, the Outlook Trading Post. From informative and educational banana farm tours to a walk through of The Barn Owl, this establishment has an abundance of activities. Afterwards, tour operators got to take a leap of faith and experience The Wild Swing with Wild 5 Adventures. This exhilarating activity hurled them across the gorge that has a depth of 165 metres. Thereafter the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve was a fitting end to the day, taking in some sightseeing and a vulture hike.
The Leopard Rock was the final venue for fourth session. The views of the Umzimkulu valley are simply breathtaking and it’s only a mere 25-minute drive from the South Coast.
