The Dawid Kruiper Tourism section recently hosted grade 12 tourism learners from Rietfontein Combined School on a tourism educational field trip to the Khomani San Communal Property Association.

They were accommodated at a tented bush camp on the farm Erin. The farm forms part of Northern Cape’s world heritage site. These young people were entertained with a walking trail, game drive, tourism awareness discussions on tourism as a career and business venture. The tourism awareness program forms part of the Dawid Kruiper Tourism Section’s Tourism Month initiatives. The intention is to educate and inform the community on the importance of tourism, sustainable tourism development and practices.

“Tourism Month is an annual celebration held during September which focus on the importance of tourism to the economy of the world and is aimed at encouraging South Africans to travel within their country and get a better understanding of the fun, affordable and exciting attractions available to them on their own doorstep.


One of the objectives of this program is to motivate and inform South Africans and the local communities to travel within the Dawid Kruiper region for their next weekend or holiday breakaway. This is an excellent opportunity to involved tourism learners by exposing them with practical examples of tourism practices” says Patrick Williams, the Spokesperson of the Dawid Kruiper Municipality.
