SA looks to World Cup to raise tourism levels


While the International Cricket Council is still keeping Kenya guessing on whether or not Nairobi will host the two World Cup matches next month, South African tourism looks to make hay when the tournament gets underway on February 8 in Cape Town. During the tournament, bars, shebeens will open late with food vendors also taking advantage of the carnival atmosphere in most South African cities.

One of the tourist attractions being sold ahead of the tournament is the Entabeni Game Reserve which is in the malaria-free Waterberg region in the Limpopo province, 35 minutes by flight from Johannesburg or a two-and-a-half hour drive. (see Howzaat! on Pg 15)
