Durban tourism sector ready to do business
The City is set to re-ignite its tourism sector after a difficult lockdown period and urges locals and visitors alike to re-discover South Africa’s ‘warmest place to be’.

Led by eThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda, accompanied by Durban Tourism and sector roleplayers, a delegation will embark on a walkabout to light up several iconic Durban buildings, major attractions and products as part of reignite Durban on 23 to 24 September.

The core aim of the programme is to restore hope after the sector’s economy was crippled by the negative impact of Covid-19. Central to the campaign is encouraging the public to rediscover Durban as products are ready and there is so much more for visitors to explore and do in the City.

Mayor Kaunda said: “This is to officially set the tone for the industry’s road to recovery. The City is once again ready to host business travelers to resume business in one of South Africa’s biggest economic hubs and tourism destinations following further relaxation on travel restrictions as we are now on level one of the national lockdown.”

He said the timing of moving to level one couldn’t have been more perfect as it coincides with Tourism Month which is also commemorated as Heritage Month. “As a City it gives us great pleasure to know that we can confidently pursue our destination promotion plans to roll out activations around the City as part of the My City, My Heritage campaign which seeks to honour and celebrate Durban’s tourism heritage throughout the month of September.”

A list of the City’s attractions to be lit up in order to convey the message that the City is ready to do business and host visitors, while compliant of Covid-19 safety regulations, includes the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre, Moses Mabhida Stadium, uShaka Marine World, the Hilton Hotel, City Hall, The Cube, the Oyster Box, Ohlange Institute, the Beverly Hills Hotel, uMhlanga Pier, uMlazi statues and Gordon Park to mention a few.
