South Africa walked away with 23 World Travel Awards in 2020; now, our beloved country has been nominated for even more awards in 2021!
South Africa (24 May 2021) – The World Travel Awards has announced the 28th annual award ceremony nominees. South Africa has received several nominations within the Africa category.
There are over 65 travel categories, and South Africa, or a South African business, has been nominated in every category. As mentioned last year, South Africa walked away with 23 winning titles!
The World Travel Awards have been running since 1994 and have featured the worlds best travel destinations and more. Every year, the World Travel Awards celebrates the very best across the tourism and hospitality industries. The Awards serves to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors.
This year some of the most notable award nominations include:
The nominations for Africa’s Leading Airports include all three major international airports in South Africa. That is a nod to Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.
Africa’s Leading Tourist Destinations include Robben Island, Table Mountain and V&A Waterfront. All a big nod to Cape Town.
Gqeberha, formally Port Elizabeth, joins Cape Town with a nomination for the Leading Cruise Port in Africa. Similarly, Plettenberg Bay gets a nomination for the Leading Beach Destination in Africa – already a massive win for the small beach town!
We could keep going, but you get the idea, SA is being featured heavily this year, and it is a big boost for our tourism to come.
