Hide / Show Abstract

According to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), tourism’s direct and indirect contribution to the GDP was ZAR 258 billion, estimated at about 9% of the total GDP. The tourism sector in South Africa is estimated to have directly contributed 3.0% of GDP in 2010. While no more recent national estimates are available, data from the WTTC estimate that this fell slightly to 2.7% in 2011. WTTC also estimates that, taking into account both the direct and indirect effects of tourism, the tourism sector’s total contribution to GDP in 2010 was 9%.
