The KZN South Coast is an established local and international film destination which has been steadily building a reputation as a film-friendly destination over the past 15 years. Further entrenching this tourism agenda, a joint initiative by Ugu South Coast Tourism and KZN Film Commission welcomed representatives from the media and local film industry on a familiarization trip of the KZN region from 1 to 3 November. The tour included visits to nature-based sites Vernon Crooks Nature Reserve; Impiti Conservancy; agritourism venture, Mac Bananas; as well as attendance at the launch of the KwaNzimakwe Multi-Trails on Sunday, 3 November. Guests also enjoyed the quality retail and hospitality sectors, among them Senzi’s on Faya, St Michaels Sands Hotel, and the Lilizela Tourism Award finalist Umthunzi Hotel & Conference. The programme also consisted of some extreme adventure at the award-winning Oribi Gorge Wild 5 Adventure. The delegation included representatives from Brazon Media and Inanda FM; Thabang Moleya of Sereti films, Legend Manqele and Palesa Magakoa of The Bar Leader TV, Lungile Radu and Matli Tefatso Mohapeloa from Parental Advisory Productions, as well as representatives from the host organisations, Ugu South Coast Tourism and The KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission – Sphesihle Dlamini (Locations and Facilities Specialist), Nokuthula Shongwe (Marketing & Communications Specialist) and Mbali Nyuswa (Marketing Coordinator). Commenting on the familiarization tour, CEO of Ugu South Coast Tourism, Phelisa Mangcu, said: “This was a really productive event that gave our visitors an extensive overview of the KZN South Coast in a short space of time. We already boast a thriving local film industry, film-friendly municipal by-laws and a variety of infrastructure suited to film, so we are excited to grow this particular tourism aspect going forwards.” For more information
