Youths Get Tourism Training in Giyani

The Mopani District Municipality, comprising the Giyani, Tzaneen, Letaba and Phalaborwa regions, is preparing itself to enter the tourism arena. Bua News reports that the municipality is training 13 youths from deep rural areas in the municipality to become tour guides at the Giyani Sports Arts and Culture Centre.

Municipal manager Tim Maake says, "We have always been best known as an  agricultural area and also for our small scale mining and we see a gap in the tourism sector, which we must now build the capacity to make it a thriving sector."

The youth training forms part of the municipality's five year integrated development plan. The municipality hopes the training will ensure that tourists to the area get a good impression of all the tourism hotspots.
