Jozi travelers explore Durban
To promote local tourist attractions during September, which is Tourism and Heritage Month, eThekwini Municipality hosted about 200 Jozi FM travelers from 2 to 5 September.

The delegation was shown some of the City’s hidden gems.

The Jozi FM Travelers Tour to Durban is a result of an existing strategic partnership that the Clermont Community Tourism Organisation (CTO) formed with Jozi FM.

The Tropicana Hotel in Durban also came on board and ensured visitors had a memorable stay in the City.  
Among the sites explored was a ricksha bus tour to the Cator Manor Heritage Centre, Zazi Road in Clermont, the Phezulu Safari Park, Giba Gorge, Mzinyathi Falls, the Rasta Caves, Inanda Mountain View, a Inanda Dam boat cruise, and stopping at several township restaurants.

The tour included a one-day workshop where Durban Tourism and industry stakeholders, such as Tourism KwaZulu-Natal, presented programmes and opportunities to enhance competitiveness. This is to ensure development in the sector. 
The Clermont CTO is one of nine CTOs funded annually by Durban Tourism to promote rural, cultural, and township tourism. This is to position Durban as a destination of choice.

Chairperson of the Clermont CTO Nkosinathi Phili said the support of Durban Tourism of the partnership contributed to the success of growing the Durban brand.

Phili said the benefit of the partnership included promoting Durban through live interviews on the community radio station and prompting upcoming tourism campaigns.

He said additional exposure will see the Durban Tourism website/branding being included on the Jozi FM website page. Also, Jozi FM was broadcasting live in Durban during the tour.

Michelle Perumal, Tropicana Hotel Sales and Marketing Manager said: “We are grateful for this partnership. As the tourism and hospitality industry, we are struggling during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is important to network and form partnerships to survive.”
