Following on from its successful campaign in 2013, South African Tourism will once again host a group of bloggers from around the world to #MeetSouthAfrica.       

IN AN AGE where bloggers have become an important source of information for those searching for their next dream destination, destination marketing organisations are taking heed to their importance as a part of their digital marketing scope.

In 2014, 14 bloggers will traverse South Africa in search of the ideal activities, accommodation and destinations for their readers between 2 May and 11 May 2014. These bloggers include a mix of both international and local bloggers known for their influence in the travel sphere.

“South African Tourism has always been known as a leading organisation when it comes to digital marketing, and this year will be no different,” says Chief Executive Officer, MrThulaniNzima.

“We’re looking forward at INDABA to hosting a new pool of bloggers that are eager to come and Meet South Africa, explore our destination and convey what they find back to the world.”

The bloggers included in this year’s campaign are:

Melvin Boëcher – www.traveldudes.org

Matt Karsten – www.expertvagabond.com

Mauricio Oliveira – www.trilhaseaventuras.com.br

Caspar Diederik – www.storytravelers.com

“The bloggers will all start in Johannesburg, and then head out to other parts of the country over the course of the week leading up to INDABA 2014. We will be following their every move through the use of the hashtag #MeetSouthAfrica and we have lots of exciting elements and activities planned,” adds Nzima.

Some of this year’s activities include scheduled Instawalks – city walks with local Instgrammers who will show off their favourite photo spots – open to the public in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban; a Blogger’s Cocktail Event in Durban ahead of INDABA and panel discussion happening in the new TechZone at INDABA 2014.

South African Tourism first instituted its #MeetSouthAfrica Blogger’s Campaign in 2013 with the aim of opening up a new form of communication with potential travellers looking for their next holiday destination. The campaign saw over 219-million impressions of the hashtag across various social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
