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.

FEATURED MEMBER OF THE WEEK

TINTSWALO LAPALALA

Tintswalo Lapalala is located in the 44,500 hectare, malaria-free Lapalala Wilderness Reserve in the greater Waterberg area. The eco-friendly tented camp is completely off the grid, and solely run by solo power and generators. Guests enjoy all the modern comforts of a luxury lodge whilst still experiencing the true beauty of the bush. As there are only two commercial lodges on the reserve, vehicle density is very low, making it one of the most private and undisturbed safari experiences within the region.

Enjoying a sheltered location, the Lapalala Wilderness offers sanctuary to herds of buffalo, black and white rhino, sable and roan antelope that are all bred on the reserve. Twenty-seven kilometres of pristine river meander through the reserve, providing opportunities to enjoy the peaceful magnificence of water-rich scenery, teeming with bird life. Water-based wilderness activities include riverside picnics, sunset cruises and fishing, or swimming in rapids and crystal-clear rock pools.

We have introduced a special getaway package for our fellow South Africans!

**Waterberg Tourism** Invitation to a discussion on this unique and understudied plant native to Southern Africa the
RESURRECTION BUSH
The Resurrection Bush (Myrothamnus flabellifolia) is a unique and understudied plant native to southern Africa which does particularly well here in the Waterberg.

In addition to being an emerging model for understanding plant resiliency due to its extreme drought tolerance it produces a robust profile of secondary compounds with important medicinal properties, anticancer, and antidiabetic. It also has cosmetic applications and is regarded as a healing tea. Consequently, there is a growing interest in cultivating and harvesting the Resurrection Bush for use in applied industries.

We are privileged to have several world experts visit us in Vaalwater to tell us more about the Resurrection Bush and their plans to study its population dynamics (growth rates, best propagation strategies and sustainable harvesting requirements) in the Waterberg for ultimate use as a cash crop to investors.

If you would like to hear about this remarkable plant, participate in their studies (by allowing a scientist to study your populations) and/or simply hear about the business opportunities it presents, we would like to see you at:

**Waterberg Tourism Year End Function**
Just a quick reminder of our end-year function this Thursday 28 November 2019 from 14:00 onwards.
We have invited two great speakers to provide some invaluable information:
Heather Nel has been an accredited quality assessor with the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa for 10 years and will speak on star grading and quality assurance.
A great opportunity for anyone who wants to find out more on the importance of quality assurance, how star grading works, what it costs and if star grading is relevant to our domestic and international tour operators and visitors.
Liselette Laubser from Keystone Human Capital will then speak to us on important labour law issues pertaining to the tourism and hospitality industry, as well as how to handle labour issues and CCMA cases in the tourism industry correctly. Our industry faces various challenges when it comes to labour and this is perfect for members to find out how to treat staff legally, fairly, and at the same time avoid issues escalating to the CCMA.
After the information session, we will then braai together and have a chance to catch up, network and socialise before the end-year high season takes over.
Waterberg Tourism will provide fires and side dishes; there will also be a cash bar available.
We’re looking forward to enjoying your company as we close off 2019 and boldly face 2020!
