SA Arrivals Reflect Key Markets Decline

Statistics SA’s latest tourism and migration report, reflecting arrival numbers for June, reveals that South Africa saw marginal growth of 2.8 percent from June 2017.

However, overseas numbers in fact declined, reflecting a drop of 1.7 percent year-to-date arrivals.

The top 10 countries remained the same as May, with their positions in the top 10 having shifted slightly. The increase in arrivals from key source markets such as the US and the UK, which are consistently the top two countries, is important to note.

Overall, European numbers have declined, showing two percent less than the same time in 2017. North America has shown a small amount of growth, up 0.7 percent.

An examination of the trends over the last four years shows an expected seasonal decline around June.
