People will continue to take holidays to South Africa, despite the current economic climate, it has been attested.

Camissa Township Tours spokesperson Garth Angus told the Independent Online Business Report that this is largely because backpackers and wealthy travellers, two groups which frequently take such trips, will not be as affected by the credit crunch as other demographics.

He added that the drop in value of the rand may also mean that these people get more for their money in terms of currency to spend in the country.

South African Tourism chief executive Didi Moyle agreed, pointing out that there has not been a decline in visits to South Africa, mostly because it does not simply depend on one region for its tourism industry.

Anyone looking for flights to South Africa may be interested to know that the three main airports for the country are Johannesburg International Airport, Cape Town International Airport and Durban International Airport.
