Township and rural travel has taken off in a big way- especially in KwaZulu-Natal.
One of the major rural and township drivers in the province is WowZulu, a subsidiary of Africa Ignite, a non-profit rural organisation that supports rural women, youth and emerging entrepreneurs.
WowZulu operates in seven tourist destinations across KwaZulu-Natal. These include Isandlwana in the KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields, Khula Village outside St Lucia in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, Inanda Valley, eMazizini in northern Drakensberg and Ugu on the South Coast.
Some of the bespoke experiences include a village walk and tracker ride up the mountains at eMazizini and a tour where a sangoma consults with bees in South Coast.
Briony Smith of WowZulu said the tours was a platform for the rural community to showcase their various crafts to visitors.
