Tshwane boasts of property and tourism at travel show

Tshwane hopes to woo tourists to the Jacaranda City with its exhibition at the annual travel show, Indaba, being held in Durban. The exhibition showcases all the capital has to offer, from ambitious property developments to sporting events and even wildlife.

Among the developments being promoted is the 110-storey Symbio City, planned to tower over Centurion and include residential, hotel and shopping facilities.

On the tourism front, the city is offering a range of options, including monuments and attractions for nature lovers, including the Groenkloof and Rietvlei nature reserve, the National Zoological Gardens and the Dinokeng Game Reserve, where one can see the Big 5 on the city's doorstep.

Executive mayor of Tshwane Kgosientso Ramokgopa said that as part of the city's Inner City Regeneration Project, work will start on the Tshwane International Conference Centre (TICC) and supporting mixed-use developments.

The TICC site will include three hotels, retail space, offices, residential apartments and a public transport facility.

The project, worth several billions of rand, will create at least 15 000 jobs.

Another massive development is the Symbio City development, a reflection of the range of economic opportunities, cultural experiences and physical environments Tshwane offers.

Ramokgopa said the City of Tshwane was already well on its way to staking its claim as a leading African sports capital, and was promoting the Tshwane Open Golf - the first edition of which was held today.

But what may most surprise visitors to Indaba is Dinokeng. It combines private land to create a 90 000ha reserve with a range of activities including game drives, horse riding, hiking, quad biking, balloon rides and cultural tours.
