Metro FM Awards fever spreads throughout KwaZulu-Natal
Tourism KwaZulu-Natal (TKZN) joins forces with Metro FM to promote the Zulu
Kingdom as a premier domestic tourism destination
Leading up to the Metro FM Awards, to be held in Durban on 28 February 2015, TKZN will
host a series of roadshows in different parts of the province showcasing the many tourism
attractions and hidden gems only found in the exceptional Zulu Kingdom. This is a campaign
to promote KwaZulu-Natal as a must-visit tourism destination for the domestic market.
Running from 16 to 24 February, Metro FM hosts Tbo Touch and Amon will take listeners
through a journey of discovery of the myriad of experiences that tourists can enjoy
throughout the Zulu Kingdom. Millions of Metro FM listeners will get a chance to journey

Mandela was captured in 1962, explore the Midlands Meander, expose their adventurous
side by jumping off the highest gorge swing in the world in the southern coast of KZN, fly
over the majestic Drakensberg mountains and enjoy the rich culture that the province has to
Sharing his excitement about the campaign, TKZN Chief Executive Officer, Ndabo Khoza,
said, “We are very excited to partner with Metro FM, the largest national commercial radio
station in the country, in promoting KZN. We want to grow the base of domestic tourism
continually, and build a thriving tourism sector for our trade. Our aim is to increase the
culture of travel amongst all South Africans and start attracting the new traveller to our
destination. Metro FM already has a captive audience of over 5 million listeners every day,
so it makes great business sense for us to partner with the station.
We encourage all those planning to come to KwaZulu-Natal for the Metro FM awards to
come in advance or stay a little longer so they can really enjoy our exceptional Zulu
Kingdom,” concluded Khoza.
TKZN, together with the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental
Affairs, have put together an exciting programme of events and activities.
