Editors note I attended a conference at the Sandton Convention Centre not so long ago. I had the pleasure of meeting Thebetheni Tsheka and Phindile Sobhuza. They attracted my attention, as they were dressed in beautiful matching outfits, made from traditional fabrics, and they were wearing interesing accessories. After introductions, they explained to me that they had come all the way from a rural village to this conference in Johannesburg, in the hope that someone will listen to their story and help them to make positive changes.
They were over the moon when I told them that I had been to their village only a few months ago — very surprised that anyone had even heard of the town, let alone visited it. Here is their story. This story captures 1 the desire of many South Africans wanting to make their places better places to visit and 2 the frustration in struggling achieve this. This tour organisation is owned by three members.
The company mainly researches and groups together places of interest. This rural area, comprising 15 villages, has incredible attractions. The local tour organisation organises tours around the area for local and international tourists and schools.
Their initiatives benefits a large number of people. They have tried their best with the cents they have to move forward the tourism industry in their area to benefit business owners, traditional dancers, crafters, story tellers, and others. Amongst their greatest attractions is a local cave in one of the villages, which is the most popular now. A number of archealogists, researchers and other tourists have commented that this cave is the biggest rock art cave in South Africa, after the Kamberg Rock Art Site in KZN. However, they are being destroyed everyday and the people in power are not doing anything to stop that.
There is not enough support from the district nor the local municipality as far as marketing and development of our ideas due to lack of knowledge about the importance of tourism by the political heads. This will make it easier for the product owners with limited funds to advertise the attractions. It pains us to hear that thousands of tourists are flowing through South Africa every month but in our area, as amazing as it is, we get 2 tourists every 2 or 3 months. We would also like to thank all the contributors for agreeing to provide their input to create a collection of perspectives which will have a significant impact on the main-streaming of Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Practices.
We would also like to thank all the sponsors for their much need contribution in spreading awareness and providing access to products and services to assist tourism businesses to move forward.
