Data from the latest South African tourism stats indicates the slowdown in domestic tourism with either low growth or a decline in passengers arriving on Domestic Flights. The decline is supported by the stagnation of occupancies of hotels. Recent political developments will lead to declining economic growth which will negatively impact on domestic tourism. The same political developments will lead to the devaluation of the Rand, which should aid foreign tourism, but these developments may also deter foreign tourists to visit South Africa despite the favourable exchange rate.
