The festive period is once again upon us. This is the time when families come together after a long period of separation to celebrate the season. It is also the moment during which all people across religious beliefs display a gesture of generosity by giving to loved ones and those in need. This is a very important time when people should embrace one another across their religious beliefs as a people.
While Christians across the globe will be celebrating Christmas, through which they will be renewing their relationship with God, this coincides squarely with the Islamic Halal Slaughter and Eid Al-Adha (the Feast of the Sacrifice)celebrated by Muslims around the world.
As Limpopo Tourism Agency, we continue to urge the people of our province to do tourism by taking a Sho’t Left to most of our tourism facilities during this important season on our tourism calendar. I wish to, on behalf of the entire tourism industry including the service and hospitality industry, welcome everybody coming into our peaceful Province of Limpopo a pleasant festive season filled with joy.
Our province offers an opportunity for people to see Africa’s ‘Big Five’, while the adventurous can go abseiling, bungee jumping, rock climbing, caving, horse riding or kloofing. For those that enjoy more relaxed and conventional sports, the province offers some magnificent golf courses. I further urge people to take this time to use our various products in the province to relax with their loved ones. We guarantee you enjoyable and breathtaking tranquility of nature’s fauna and flora.
Our province's rich cultural and historical heritage has earned it the reputation of being a land of great mystery. Not only is it the home of the legendary Modjadji, The Rain Queen, but also to the remains of the lost kingdom of Mapungubwe. We wish to take this opportunity to welcome all and sundry coming to our shores to enjoy a plethora of festivities at our various tourist attractions in the Province.
The Department of Sport, Arts and Culture in the Province will be hosting the annual Mapungubwe Arts Festival which will culminate in the Jazz outdoor concert on the 9th December 2017. The people in Limpopo are known to be warm, welcoming and peaceful, and they are spreading their arms to welcome everybody into the province.
LTA wishes all motorists safe arrival to their respective destinations throughout the country. Finally the LTA supports the country’s campaign on sixteen days of Activism Against Women and Children Abuse that was launched on 25th November 2017.
Let us enjoy the season, as there is more to enjoy in Limpopo Province.
