Tourism says it's ready to reopen safely as SA enters lockdown Level 2By ATTA®
President Cyril Ramaphosa recently announced that South Africa would enter lockdown Level 2, and the country's tourism sector has indicated that it is ready to reopen safely.
In Level 2, inter-provincial leisure travel will be allowed and will provide a much-needed lifeline for tourism businesses that have been amongst the hardest hit by the impact of Covid-19 since even before the lockdown in South Africa. Even with the small reopening of intra-provincial domestic leisure travel, there has been a demand for tourism and travel.
Last week, online accommodation booking system provider NightsBridge confirmed it had recorded some 9,389 bookings across 2,646 properties for the past long weekend, with the Western Cape receiving most of the benefit.
NightsBridge managing director Theresa Emerick says that for establishments in many other provinces, especially Mpumalanga, North West and Limpopo, inter-provincial leisure travel would need to be opened up to provide a lifeline for accommodation providers who are reliant on the domestic market from Gauteng.
