title1
TourismWeb is a uniquely designed system that captures Southern Africa tourism traffic on the Internet. This is achieved by a series of strategically placed websites, links, Internet marketing and e-mail campaigns. The traffic and/customers are then routed to chosen/listed enterprises.

Our initial offering is to advertise and register each company on 100 websites with 10 million* views per month. This listing comprises of four pages for each client per site, multiplied by 100 sites gives you 400 targeted web pages.

These websites have been strategically developed to cover all of the categories found in the tourism industry. These categories include:

Adventure and Sport
Culture and Art
Shopping
Wining and Dining
Health and beauty
Nature and Game Reserves
Accommodation
Tours and Safaris
Cars and Motorbikes
Conferencing and Events
Tourist Attractions
Towns.

These categories are extremely broad and cover many sectors within the tourism industry. For example, Accommodation consists of the following sectors:

Guest House / Guest farms
Bed and Breakfast
Hotels
Apartments
Self-catering
Lodges/Country Estates

TourismWeb not only specialises in international traffic, but also captures a considerable amount of local traffic. We advertise and place links on a wide range of partner sites. The Internet is a highly competitive industry but the potential that exists within the industry is immeasurable. Our business is the Internet and we are professionals in this field. Companies will leave their online advertising in our hands, therefore focusing on their core business.

With the Soccer World Cup 2010, the amount of internet traffic to the South African Market and surrounding area’s will increase significantly. We will be poised to route this traffic to our sites.

Companies might also feel that, by having their own websites, they have sufficient exposure. The exposure, hits and traffic that Tourism Web will generate for the company is far greater than that of a single isolated website. Once their company enters our “web”, it will be viewed by a large number of tourist’s everyday, 24 hours a day.

TIME ZONE

LANGUAGE
- English is widely spoken and is generally the accepted means of communication.
- South Africa has eleven official languages.

CURRENCY
- Rand (R) = 100 cents.
- Denominations of coins: 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, R1, R2, R5.
- Denominations of notes: R10, R20, R50, R100, R200.
- The value of the rand against most currencies makes South Africa one of the most inexpensive sources of African souvenirs. – International credit cards are accepted.
- Traveller’s cheques can be cashed at all major banks, hotels and foreign exchange offices in major shopping centres.

BANKING
- Banking hours are generally from 09H00 – 15H30, Mondays to Fridays. Saturday banking hours are from 08H30 – 11H00.
- Cash card fraud and scams are rife throughout the country. Tourists should be careful and alert at all times.
- Banks at all international airports are open two hours either side of international arrivals and departures. ATM’s (automatic teller machines) are numerous and are available all over the country.

TAX
- Airport taxes are included in the airfare and need not be paid separately.
- Value Added Tax (VAT) is payable on all goods and services in South Africa, except on a few basic foods.
- VAT refunds can be obtained at airports upon departure from the country for goods purchased in South Africa (with a unit price exceeding R250.00).
- Foreign visitors should ensure that they receive a VAT invoice and a VAT 255 form from the retailer/wholesaler.
- Both of these forms should be presented together with the goods to the VAT Refund Administrator after passing through passport control on departure from the country.
- VAT on services is not refundable.

ELECTRICITY
- 220-240V, 50Hz AC, mostly three round-pin sockets (one 10mm and two 8mm prongs).
- Accommodation establishments usually have two round-pin sockets for razors and many have hairdryers as permanent fixtures.
- International socket adaptors will be necessary.

CLIMATE
- Seasons are opposite to those of the Northern hemisphere.
- October is an ideal season for touring – it is spring then.
- Those who go to South Africa for animal viewing in particular might want to go in the winter months. The grass is short and animals tend to gather around water holes.

- Generally Monday – Friday 08H30 to 17H00.
- Saturdays 08H30 – 13H00.
- Some shopping centres trade on Sunday mornings as well.

Taxi ranks can usually be found in city centres and at major airports. – Make sure the meter in the taxi starts at zero.

TIPPING
- Tips are expected and customary, but not compulsory.

- A 10% tip is standard for good service received from taxi drivers and restaurant waiters.
- For groups of eight or more, restaurants will add gratuity to your bill.
- Hotel porters should receive a small tip as well.

GENERAL TRAVEL TIPS
- Take an organised tour of a black township. You will be amazed at the friendliness and openness that you will encounter there.
- Don’t let the crime worry you so much that you forget to enjoy the country. All the pleasures and beauty of the country and its inhabitants will pass you by if you allow this to happen.
- Try and visit a Zulu or other ethnic village. The traditional dancing is a must-see.
- Take a tour of a working gold mine.
- Do not swim at beaches where others are not swimming. Shark nets do not protect some beaches.
- Try and catch the Springboks in action to experience the electrifying atmosphere.
- Men should pack in a smart jacket/coat and a tie as some restaurants require them in the evening.
- Pack in a flashlight if visiting a game reserve – it will come in handy.
