27 Mar 2012 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – In 2011, South Africa was the second-leading destination on the African continent with respect to the total number of inbound tourist arrivals and ranked fifth globally in terms of tourism growth. South Africa's travel and tourism industry contributed 4.8% to the national GDP and 4.3% of the country's total employment last year.

Owing to South Africa's growing economy, government initiatives and the development of tourism infrastructure, the country’s tourist volume is expected to grow over the forecast period. With the support of the Ministry of Tourism and, in particular, its National Tourism Sector Strategy (NTSS), South Africa has the potential to become one of the top twenty global tourism destinations over the next decade.
