ISSUE 02 – FEBRUARY 2017

February is the season of love, whether it be paternal, romantic, or companionate, we all express love in different ways. No matter how you slice and dice it, food and love are inextricably tied to hospitality.

In the edition, Erik Wolf of the World Food Travel Association defines what food tourism is all about and explains how to get your slice of the pie.

We also look at the state of tourism safety communications in South Africa and investigate the role of tour operators against the increase in booking aggregator business.

Of course, there’s a lot more informative content in this edition, so browse through the list below and click away. If you prefer to read offline, just download the magazine or better yet, order a printed copy.

Note: All articles in this issue have been linked to open in your web browser.

Yours in Tourism,
