IN celebration of Tourism Month, the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board (KZNSB) launched special tour packages for visitors on 13 September.

Tour operators, travel agencies and travel consultants were invited to the KZNSB in uMhlanga where information about the tour packages, which includes early morning boat cruises, was shared.

The in-house tour allows visitors the opportunity to watch a shark dissection and audio-visuals that
allow people to take an almost virtual tour into the ocean. The tour packages caters for large groups and school excursions and entrance is free to special needs schools. The KZNSB Acting Chief Executive Officer Harry Mbambo said the Board is the only institution in the world that offers a unique and diverse protection for both sharks and bathers.

A balance he described as a difficult challenge, but a rewarding accomplishment that has received
international praises. Mbambo attributed the success of the Sharks Board to hard work, dedication and research that is focused on promoting both tourism and the conservation of marine life. Mbambo said: “We are trying to encourage people to travel. KwaZulu-Natal offers scenic landscapes.

This province offers bathers protected beaches which is the first and only service of this kind in the country. The KZNSB has various measures to protect sharks, bathers, recreational anglers and commercial fisheries.” Mbambo said that the KZNSB works closely with international institutions to
better understand sharks. “We are mandated to grow the economy of the province.

The KZNSB is a huge tourism attraction in the province and the KZNSB has lured tourists to the province as a preferred holiday destination with protected beaches along KZN coastline,” added Mbambo. Tour operator Maurice Thusi who is the owner of Olwethu Travel and Tours said he was looking forward to promoting the tour packages and the City to clients.
