Quoting recent figures more than 100 000 international visitors were counted during the opening days of the soccer tournament, with more expected as it progresses towards the final. Moreover, the country benefited from a 34% increase in inbound tourism spending during the first quarter of 2010 – arguably thanks to the additional interest in the country generated by the World Cup. And tourists generally, as well as soccer fans who will undertake short tours during their stay, are undoubtedly attracted by the country’s famed wildlife and spectacular scenery. Which presents a challenge for all stakeholders in the local property industry: while SA faces pressing housing and infrastructural needs, new development simply must take account of the impact on the environment and thus on future tourism, which is one of South Africa’s most promising sources of foreign exchange, not to mention the opportunities it holds to create much needed jobs.
