As life slowly returns to normal after the easing of covid-19 regulations patrons and travellers have started visiting restaurants and other places of entertainment under strict restrictions.
The United Nations World Tourism Organisation has revealed that the tourism, hospitality and transport industries have been the hardest hit by the shut down of services and amenities during the covid-19 lockdown.
Minister of Tourism Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane recently announced new regulations allowing for the opening up of the sector.
“COVID-19 surely impacted our operations, but certainly not our sense of hospitality. The sector stands ready to host you. Whether it is a visit to the local botanical garden, restaurant or an overnight trip to another province – go and enjoy yourself and don’t forget to share your experiences as we strive for excellence, resilience and competitiveness,” Kubayi-Ngubane said.
Revellers heeded this call and headed for the great hills of Magoebaskloof to enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon of song, dance, food and drinks at the Zwakala Brewery, one of Limpopo’s popular tourist attractions.
