FEATURE

Crossing the Atlantic: Ecotourism in South Africa and Mexico
by Gerhard Buttner

South Africa and Mexico might seem worlds apart, yet there are many
similarities, opportunities and challenges. Local ecotourism projects have
much to learn from similar endeavors across the globe and the ecotourist
plays a key role in this exchange of ideas.

South Africa - The Tourist
http://www.businessday.co.za/specialist ... =BD4P87023

The Gauteng Tourism Authority (GTA) has entered into a publishing partnership with Business Day for the development of The Tourist. This is in response to fragmented strategies and messages within the marketplace, particularly with regards to integrated market intelligence on the local tourism industry.

Community-Based Tourism Directory

Post by kurt_a »

Collaboration between the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), the Regional Tourism Organisation for Southern Africa (RETOSA - www.retosa.co.za) and the Netherlands Development Organisation SNV has produced a website and database dedicated to the marketing of community-based tourism in Southern Africa.

The website not only lists properties that travellers would otherwise be unlikely to find online, but also, provides an explanation as to exactly how each property affects and benefits the local community.
