The signing ceremony, which coincided with ‘Meet South Africa Week’, was preceded by the opening of South African Tourism’s office in São Paulo on September 23. SAT hosted its first Ubuntu Awards on the same day, in recognition of tour operators who have successfully promoted South Africa as a premier global destination.
