She said: “We encourage South Africans to not only support the tourism sector to preserve the business and the jobs but also to enjoy their beautiful country after months of being in their homes,” Kubayi-Ngubane said while issuing directives for the re-opening of the tourism sector.
Under level two, places of tourism attractions are also open, including national parks, theme parks, amusement parks, water parks, family entertainment centers, zoos, aquariums, science centers, nature and game reserves. However, international travel is still prohibited.
As tourism picks up, “we are putting together the pieces of a new path towards recovery as many people in our sector return to work to provide for their families following months of hardship as we traverse through one of the most difficult periods in the history of our country and indeed the world,” the minister said.
She pledged to lay a foundation for a healthier, more resilient and competitive future for tourism.
“We are highly encouraged by the interest we are seeing from both domestic and international investors, looking for opportunities in the tourism sector,” Kubayi-Ngubane said.
This gives hope that the supply side of the tourism sector will not only recover, but has the potential to surpass where it was prior to the pandemic, said the minister.
To prevent tourism facilities from becoming a source of the spread of the pandemic, some restrictions will remain, she said.
