Sports Tourism companies in South Africa

BossaballIn 2012, South Africa was named the world’s leading sports tourism destination, and according to figures from Brand South Africa, roughly 10% of foreign visitors who visit the country each year do so to watch or participate in a sporting event. This statement reflects our potential for growth in sport development, tourism and recreation.

South Africa is a heterogeneous society, a nation characterised by 11 languages and a myriad of different cultures. Sport has a unifying factor which brings people of all walks of life together and focuses on commonalities rather than differences. It has played a positive role in the nation’s transition to non-racial democracy and through this medium has enabled a divided country to develop a collective identity and voice.

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they can understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination, Nelson Mandela.

03 BossaballIt is with this message of hope that Zinto Sports (a division of Zinto Marketing Group, an established brand activation, entertainment and event company) intends to introduce a new sport called Bossaball to South Africa. The aim is to establish Bossaball as a vehicle to empower individuals and communities and enhance social cohesion.

Bossaball is a complementary sport which combines elements of soccer, volleyball, gymnastics and the Afro-brazilian martial arts form, capoeira. It is played on an inflatable court featuring a trampoline on each side of the net. The change in gravity, combined with the safety provided by the inflatable surface, allows a whole new range of techniques, team tactics and strategies, which give players a new perspective on their favourite games.

Ryan Braybrooke, sports director at Zinto Sports says, “Looking back at South Africa’s international and national accomplishments in sport and the positive impact that it has had on sports development in the country, one can safely say that sport is key to integrated social interaction that enables one to reach a diverse group of individuals. Through collectively displaying the benefits of Bossaball to local communities, we wish to see an advancement in sport development. It is in this context that we see the need to integrate Bossaball into South African society.”

In 2010, Bossaball was identified in The Times (United Kingdom) as one of the most captivating new sports introduced to the world today. In September 2011, Bossaball was ranked number 31 on CNN’s list of 50 things to do before you die.

It will be midsummer there. There are beaches but nobody gives a crap about what you look like in a swimsuit. It is very relaxed and there is a lot to do.
You could do the Bay of Islands for beaches, sailing, big game fishing or scuba diving.
Or Auckland is good for a city vacation. City stuff, go to the museum and aquarium, go up the volcanoes, out on the ferries to the vineyards on Waiheke Island or the bird sanctuary on Tiritiri Island, out to the west coast side for big surf, scenery and solitude.
Rotorua/Waitomo Caves/Taupo loop for adventure sports and the geothermal tourism stuff, hiking, or trout fishing

Agreed

I'd go for Peru, myself. Chile next. But definitely, need more details to give any helpful input. Argentina was less interesting to me than I expected -- I think Buenos Aires is probably pretty great if you want a city experience, but then I'm not sure how much there is for you outside of that. (Having said that, I haven't been to Bariloche, and would still plan to. But only as a side to a mostly-Chile expedition.) Costa Rica is great, but also has a seriously tourism-driven economy, and is really best if you want to do adventure tours/sports or just completely relax. Peru and Chile I like because there are just lots of options, at least as long as you don't crave a metropolis and want more culture, outdoors, whatever

My family is from Cusco, Peru. (Your destination in order to visit Machu Pichu). I've lived in the SF Bay Area for fifteen years and I go to Peru at least once a year. This is my third year organising tours to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Because tourism is the main industry in Cusco most of my family and friends have been involved in tourism for many years. This gives me an insider look, and puts me in a great position to get the best values.
Cusco is one of my favorite travel destinations. There is something interesting for every body. Great history, magnificent architectural complexes, wonderful arts and crafts, beautiful music, exotic customs and traditions,unique scenery and wildlife, varied and exciting adventure sports, as well as a fun night life
