Mossel Bay


Tourism is everyone`s business!

The importance of tourism is like a pebble dropped in water. The widening ripples have the same effect that tourist expenditure has on a town’s economy.
For example; a visiting traveler eats in a restaurant, buys art in a gallery, stays in a guest house or cruise on a yacht in the bay. This tourist`s money is then spent by the local business owner in other businesses in and around town; he supports the local supermarket and liquor shop when he buys stock, buys a vehicle and supports the local hardware shop when he does maintenance. These businesses in turn employ people who on their turn support the town’s businesses and so the ripple gets wider and larger – all with money the tourist originally spent.
A town’s economic development (ripple in the water) touches all its residents  and if you are a business owner on top of that, Tourism is your business so much more. You don’t have to be a Tourism business owner to be a member of Mossel Bay Tourism. It is in everyone’s interest to draw people to the region who then spends more money in our area – the ripple affects you too.Become a member today and add your voice to the issues that are important.

Proudly Mossel Bay

Proud of Mossel Bay?

There’s just one thing, though: you need to agree to use the Brand Identity in a consistent manner. This will prevent confusion in the market place and will serve to increase the reach of Mossel Bay Tourism.
