SA wins Best Safari Destination

It’s official, South African Tourism has been awarded a SAFARI INDIA South Asia Travel award in the Best Safari Destination category.  Collected by our India office, we are proud to win yet another safari award, which is testament to the natural beauty that our country offers the world.

The awards ceremony took place in September 2016 and the award was accepted by South African Tourism representatives from our India office.

We are extremely proud to receive this award and know that it would not have been possible without all the hard work and dedication of everyone who plays a role in tourism in South Africa.

The award was given in association with the Pacific Area Travel Writers Association (PATWA), the leading travel writers’ organisation representing members from all over the world. The organisation’s aim is to promote professional development of travel writing and travel communication, which will make an invaluable contribution in the promotion of tourism.

The aim of PATWA is to support the fundamental objectives and efforts for tourism and at the same time, it will maintain adherence to the fundamental principles of UNESCO, United Nations and the World Tourism Organisation.
