Nigeria remains a very important market for South African tourism’

South African Tourism mandate in West Africa, particularly Nigeria and Ghana is to promote South Africa as a preferred holiday destination of choice.

As part of its marketing efforts to ensure maximum exposure, the organisation recently hosted a group of trade partners and journalists to a tour of Free State, Kwazulu Natal and Gauteng provinces.

The nine-day fun trip ended in Soweto, with a networking session between hosted trade partners and South African Property Opportunities (SAPO).

In an interview with CHUKS NWANNE at the event, the Regional Manager (West Africa) for South African Tourism, Hloni Pitso, spoke on the idea behind the hosting and the desire of SAT to build strong relationship with its partners and tourists from West Africa.
