Calling on operators to register to operate a tourism activity at Outeniqua Nature Reserve – Cape Nature applications close 26 August 2022
Issued by George Municipality 12 August 2022 for immediate release
George, Wilderness and Uniondale Tourism encourages tourism industry stakeholders, in particular those that are activity-based operators, to consider and apply for an opportunity being offered by Cape Nature to submit proposals to operate within their reserves.
In George, this opportunity will specifically be within the Outeniqua Nature Reserve. Joan Shaw, Manager: George, Wilderness and Uniondale Tourism said, “This is a great opportunity for local entrepreneurs operating in the sports or tourism industries to benefit from our magnificent natural outdoor setting. The Outeniqua Reserve is right on our doorstep – literally at the entrance to George from the Oudtshoorn direction and close to the new Hawthorn Boutique Hotel opening soon. The area is mostly used for trails – hiking, trail running and mountain biking – as well as the Power Van which utilises the railway track up the mountain. We encourage entrepreneurs to grab hold of this prospect, as it will benefit not only your potential business, but also the greater community of George, continuing to position George as a sports and tourism destination.”
