South Africa 'a leading 2010 destination'

Article content

4 January 2010

South Africa will be one of the leading holiday destinations in 2010, it has been suggested.

According to The Independent, the country is set to be popular with holidaymakers as it is holding the 2010 FIFA World Cup in the summer.

The event takes place between 11 June and 11 July and will allow visitors who are fans of football to enjoy the sport alongside some "world-class tourism" in places such as Cape Town, Rustenburg and Port Elizabeth.

Other, less well-known areas such as Polokwane and Nelspruit will also attract new visitors as a result of the tournament, The Independent noted.

Last month, the Daily Telegraph's Charles Starmer-Smith observed that 25,000 English people will be travelling to South Africa in order to support the national team during the summer, with a total of around half a million visitors predicted to travel to the country from around the world to back their teams.
