Tourism: A South African Perspective
Tourism: A South African Perspective provides a practical introduction to the tourism industry, covering a wide range of content across various subject areas. Students will learn about the history of tourism – both locally and globally – as a foundation for understanding the South African tourism industry. They will also be exposed to basic geographical concepts, such as physical features, weather and climate, oceanography, map interpretation and time zones, among others. The book places special emphasis on the value of attractions and heritage sites, as well as on the importance of transport and accommodation. Finally, it explains how the ‘tourism footprint’ affects a host country, both economically and ecologically, and which measures can be taken to reduce its impact.
