September marks Heritage Month and is a time to reflect on the many things that make us uniquely South African. But it's also Tourism Month – a call for you to get out there and explore your heritage through as many tourism adventures as you can!
South Africa has been a much-loved destination for tourists worldwide, and these visitors bring a welcome boost to the economy. However, with the pandemic limiting international travel, it's up to locals to the economy and our incredible tourism destinations open for business.

Our country is so rich in culture and possibility, and travel is a great way to get in tune with our heritage,” she says.
