INTRODUCTION - WATERBERG TOURISM

The natural splendour of the Waterberg, with more than 300 days of sunshine each year, fresh air and clean water, is a South African gem.  A large variety of attractions, an abundance of wild life and birds, excellent accommodation and activities to suit everyone makes it a perfect destination. And the Waterberg is very accessible especially as it’s only two hours from Pretoria.

Waterberg Tourism is registered as a non-profit corporation for the inclusion of all stakeholders. Waterberg Tourism is seeking only to serve its members by competitively marketing the Waterberg area as an outstanding tourism destination, to local and international tourists.

Should We Rely on Government?

in Blog, Latest News

Sadly, we have reached the stage in South Africa where we are heavily reliant on the government to support and fund us with so many aspects of our lives.  Gone are the days when people had to earn what they needed and had to work hard to get what they wanted.

Our history in the Waterberg has taught us that “communities cannot and must not be lulled into reliance on politicians, political parties or formal governmental departments for the provision of many of the services we need.  We must be prepared to roll up our sleeves, find the money, make the time and get down to work ourselves.  In the past communities that worked together to fund, build or manage facilities also built a community spirit, a spirit that occasionally transcended divisions of gender, race or creed. If the Waterberg community is ever to prosper more opportunities for broad community cooperation must be sought and pursued.

We must be prepared to break new ground in forging new alliances with former adversaries, now current neighbours, to build new community projects together for our mutual benefit.  We must relegate our differing ethnicities, religious and political affiliations, genders and languages to a subordinate status whilst celebrating the variety and depth they can add to our national culture.”

Please note that there is still a lot of uncertainty about the new activities allowed under level 3 and that in all things the general level 3 lock-down restrictions should be taken into account. 🙄
The main thing to remember is: NO LEISURE TRAVEL OR ACCOMMODATION.😔
And in the meantime we've attached the following infographic outlining what is and is not allowed.

We'll keep everyone updated as to new regulations and guidelines, watch this space!😉👍
Stay strong, we're inching closer...
