CREATING A SUSTAINABLE TOURISM FUTURE

The cooperation and compassion seen during this time of need has solidified our industry in leading the way to the Future of Tourism Worldwide.

Innovation in our sectors has sparked inspiration and development around the globe. We have seen partnerships forged that will last a lifetime, witnessed community growth through education and entrepreneurs inspiring others to be so much more.
Our Events sectors have created frameworks for cooperation and communication. Teambuilding and business tourism has developed new meaning and cultural crosspollination that bridges our countries. The future is an unpredictable new space where virtual events hybridize with the established sectors to create unimaginable new spaces.
The Arts bring a softness to the hard edges we now face while in the same moment give us a voice to speak through. Our crafters dream of a future where their works will attract our tourists back to our shores.
We all have a part to play in the recovery and rebuilding of this amazing combination of Industries that all relate to Travel. You are welcome in this world of Travel and we are here to support and facilitate the measures needed to open Travel safely once more.

Feel safe when you take a flight during the current COVID travel restrictions, it’s easier than you think – follow these simple steps.

Science & Medicine

The formation of Protocols are based on scientific evidence from various fields and the implementation is to go through public testing and sustainability studies. Protocols are about saving lives and protecting the public and private sectors.

Compassion & Ethics

In considering the implementation and use of Protocols we put People First as lives are at stake. Ethical considerations are to form a baseline in terms of the sharing of information and the use of data to form the needed Protocol measures.

Technology & Monitoring

The use of Technology fundamentally changes how effectively we are able to implement Protocols and then monitor their effectiveness. Monitoring data and the ever changing direction of the challenges we face in the world determines the speed of our response.

The Covid Protocols series are a collaboration between Hello Adventures and Khotso from Southern Xplorer to offer YOU a behind-the-scenes look at what tourism businesses in South Africa are doing to get travel-ready during the Covid19 pandemic.

The one above is "Covid Safety Protocols for Accommodation".

The other videos in this series are:
- 10 Reasons Why You Should Travel After Lockdown - Tips for Travelling in South Africa After Covid-19
- Travelling in 2020 and 2021 - 6 Tips for Travelling After the Covid-19 Lockdown
- Covid Safety Protocols for Airports

With safety protocols in place, as a traveller you’ll feel safer when you travel after lockdown, and as a tourism business you’ll know you’re ready to welcome guests as soon as possible.

Important Note: These protocols are guidelines, drawn up by the tourism industry in South Africa.
Surveys and studies are being put together by Youth Tourism South Africa in collaboration with the Department of Tourism and Events at CPUT in order to record the impact of COVID-19 on Tourism and Events.
Covid-19 Protocols documents and footage are there to advise the public on the regulations set our in Government documents.

Protocol guidelines

important things to know

The protocols being implemented worldwide and relating to the current COVID-19 pandemic are guidelines, measures and procedures formed by medical bodies, councils, and scientific research and study. It is advised that you consult directly with your Government or representative Council or Association before implementing any COVID-19 protocols. There are many legal implications if you implement measures that are not uniformly accepted worldwide. Currently the main reference point for all COVID-19 protocols is the World Health Organization - https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Please seek legal assistance and oversight when developing or implementing any protocol measures.
This site and all related sites DO NOT in any way or form develop protocols and all protocols listed on the site are guidelines only, by the relevant representative organisation. This site is a Public Benefit page with the aim of studying the impact of COVID-19 on Tourism in South Africa.
