Read all about it in this KZN Tourism update! First up: Shapes of Africa is happy to hear that no Coronovirus cases have hit South Africa yet! We all breathe a sigh of relief as we continue to avoid any rumours of the spread of this dread disease.
Coronovirus Stays Away
In KZN, it is good news that South African health authorities and hospitals are on high alert and that all our airports are screening high temperatures of passengers arriving in the country. Tourism is important to us so we sympathise with the fact that Chinese citizens are not allowed to travel from China, as decreed by their own government.
According to SATSA, “Any passenger found to be ill or exhibiting fever symptoms on arrival will be reviewed at airport clinics. The National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) confirms that South African hospitals are prepared to deal with any Corona-related problems and laboratories have facilities in place to test for the respiratory disease.”
Shapes of Africa remains open for business during this low KZN tourism season so please don’t stress. Come to our rustic eco backpackers to DE-stress and see the glory of Mount Moreland and uMdloti.
South African Adventure Summit in Winter
If you like adventure as much as the Shapes of Africa crowd does, then you better be at the second South African Adventure Summit. This takes place from 3-5 June 2020 at the Wits End Mountain Resort in the Drakensberg.
Welcome to an exciting conference for owners and managers of activity operations from around the country. The Summit focuses on adventure tourism and includes both small and medium-sized business as well as the bigger, long-established operators.
Find out more about the day before the official start of the Summit – a ‘Day of Adventure’. Join other conference participants when they participate in a day hike, mountain biking, quad biking, zip lining, 4×4 tour, kayaking, hot air ballooning, abseiling and zip swing, Scootours and horse riding. All laid on by local operators and accommodation venues!
If you love decor and design, come to Durban from 19 to 22 March to be part of Decorex Durban. Organisers say this is a cost-effective and time-efficient way to source and grow your network of reliable and high-quality suppliers from over 200 exhibitors within the kitchen and bathroom, décor and design, furniture and décor accessories, outdoor living and build sectors.
