Tourism In South Africa

Travel and Gaming Associations

The main aims of the association include fostering a good relationship between the casinos and the public and encouraging good governance of an industry that makes considerable contributions to the provincial and national economies – in part by way of the many jobs they provide, in part by way of the taxes that they pay.

Great places to stay at in or near the port city of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) include Tsogo Sun’s Garden Courts, Southern Sun and Suncoast hotels, the Beverley Hills hotel as well as the Cabana Beach and uMhlanga Sands resorts – from here you can explore the beachfronts, go to the malls or visit uShaka Marine World.
