South African Tourist Attraction to Get Solar Power

Six of South Africa's iconic tourism attractions will be equipped with solar powered energy sources in the coming financial year, Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom told parliament on Wednesday, 3 May, during the annual Tourism budget speech. Recognising the environmental and cost benefits of moving towards renewable energy, the Tourism Department says it is supporting major destinations to install renewable energy sources as part of the Tourism Incentive Program. "Contractors have been appointed to install renewable energy at various pilot sites, including Robben Island Museum; theSkukuza and Lower Sabi rest camps in the Kruger National Park; and the Karoo Desert, the Hantam and the Free State National Botanical Gardens," Hanekom said.
