Durban Sets Sights on Becoming Africa's Leading Cruise Destination

Durban served as a massive gateway to trade in the Southern hemisphere and presented ample opportunities for cruise tourism development, said Ndabo Khoza, CEO of TKZN, as the organisation headed off to participate in the  Seatrade Cruise Global Convention 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, United States of America, from 14 to 17 March.

The city’s attempts to find the right bidder for its new cruise terminal have not been successful as yet, with plans eventually being put on hold. However TNPA’s existing cruise terminal – situated at N Shed at the Port of Durban, off Margaret Mncadi Avenue – was recently upgraded through a joint initiative between Transnet Ports Authority and MSC to bring it more in line with international standards.

According to Khoza, TKZN was attending the Seatrade Cruise Global, which would allow it to interact with industry captains and role players in the maritime industry. "The event is said to be the leading international exhibition and conference serving the cruise industry by bringing together buyers and suppliers for a week of networking, sourcing, innovation and education."
