    As a concerned guesthouse owner as well as someone aching to go camping, I attended a webinar yesterday, hoping for some good news. Well there wasn't any really exciting news, but I was quite impressed that there are a few associations like TBCSA (Tourism Business Council of SA) and SATSA (Southern African Tourism Services Association) putting pressure on the ministers and government. One of these is now taking legal action and from what I could tell, they seem to be doing all they can under the circumstances.

    I had to ask myself - what am I doing? Not sure how much we can achieve in our individual capacities, but we can at the very least support the petitions and those who are achieving some traction.
    Here are links to two such petitions -

    Very true, the plans of the New World Order go ahead faster in the plandemic and the government stooges comply wholeheartedly as they have been ďboughtĒ long time ago. I told swambo at beginning of lockdown it was a coup-de-tat by minority with no checks and balances and no

    Almost certainly if you listen to the airheaded Minister of Tourism. I camped 5 days 3 weeks ago, will do again this long weekend. Ms Kubayi-Ngubane can kiss my hairy fat ass. Well, not really, I havenít sunk that far but itís the thought that counts. I carry a laptop and comms kit, Iím in a position to consult to the resort owner on Post Covid recovery strategy while minimizing social contact and not encouraging them to open their Lodge.

    Coincides with the reimposed school shutdown and the private school holiday. Itís not accidental, the mugwumps in charge are playing us.

    Guys, anyone drove to Harrismith/Mooi Rivier from JHB? Any road block? If not N3, any back road to reach there to avoid the cops? The reason is to camp somewhere there in the mountains.

    I am beginning to expect the same for our December booking.

    There seems to be no end in sight nor the will to save any part of the tourist industry.

    I have been informed that Her Uselessness is due to hold a briefing today at 14h00.

    We have bookings for September, actually checked the www this morning. July and August is blocked but September is still open for reservations. Lets hold thumbs, lets hold everything!!!

    Leisure travel within own provinces are allowed - effective as soon as Gazetted.

    Damn how I wish I was in Limpopo or Mpumalanga - that is if SanParks' decide to open accommodation.

    Does that allow for overnight stays in own provinces as well? Was that said during her briefing now?

    Sorry I don't have the mental energy to listen to the briefing.
