Its always fun when tourism companies light up and make their products entertaining, and easily accessible for the man in the street. The Cradle of Humankind Tourism Company has done just that by introducing a very snazzy App. Wondering what to do in the Cradle of Humankind? Or where it actually is geographically? (No silly, it’s not only Maropeng). Then just download the App which is found on www.thecradleofhumankind.net
With three hotels and Spas in the Cradle of Humankind catchment area, it is only fit for Guvon Hotels to be amongst the leaders in signing up Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa, Glenburn Lodge & Spa as well as Askari Lodge & Spa with the brand new local tourism association.
The Cradle Tourism Company (TCTC), was officially launched on Thursday 31 March 2016 at EnGedi Lodge, which also falls in the Cradle area.
“While we are around 400 plus competing tourism options in the wider Cradle area, we must not lose track of the fact that our main focus as hoteliers within The Cradle is to attract visitors to our destination”, says Group Marketing Manager of Guvon Hotels & Spas Christa Badenhorst. “From a marketing perspective, I am very excited about the packaging of the Cradle experience, which makes it fun and accessible for those who want to visit the area. The Cradle App which contains the Cradle attractions is also a first for our area and will come in very handy for guests who want to explore the multitude of offerings”.
