Tourism KwaZulu-Natal will give 20 unemployed students a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to be tourism ambassadors during this year’s Africa Travel Indaba which starts today, 2 May 2022 at the Durban International Convention Centre.

The 20 students who also include some of the interns that recently completed their internship at Tourism KZN last month, will also be assisting delegates with directions, information services of what places of interests they can explore during their visit and so much more.

This is to ensure that delegates get the best of KZN. The Tourism Ambassadors will be stationed at key hotels as well as around the Durban ICC where they will be within eyeshot of any delegate that will need any information.

The Africa’s Travel Indaba will be attended by close to 4000 delegates, which will include over 200 International Buyers and close to 100 members of the international media.

Tourism supports 740,000 direct jobs and contributes about 9% to the country’s gross domestic product.

With Tourism KZN’s assistance this renews faith in tourism to create and support jobs, contribute to the economy, and bring diverse people together to create memorable experiences.

The 20 tourism ambassadors are looking forward to offering their services to a busy and yet exciting Africa Travel Indaba at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre Complex (Durban ICC) from 3 to 5 May.
