RSVP now for the South African Youth Travel Confederation’s presentation
The South African Youth Travel Confederation (SAYTC), which will be amalgamating with SATSA next year, is holding a presentation for interested members as follows: Date: 26 March Time: 15h00 Venue: Kruger Adventure Lodge, Hazyview The SAYTC, a non-profit trade organisation representing the youth tourism industry, was formed in 1998 under the name Backpacking South Africa to co-operatively market South Africa as a backpacking destination. The organisation expanded in 2007 to include other youth tourism sectors. Its mission is to market South Africa globally as a preferred youth tourism destination and to establish a professional youth tourism industry, based on accreditation and guidelines.
SAYTC is membership-driven and is represented in the backpacking, education, volunteering and tourism sectors.

Send us your news so that we can effectively market the Kruger Lowveld region
Kruger Lowveld is urging all members to please send us your news, especially regarding your products, new activities, events and what’s happening at your hotel or guesthouse. We often get requests for content from the media and other tourism stakeholders and the more we know about what you are doing the more effectively we are able to market the region! Please send news and information to Tom Vorster.
