Religious Tourism

A growing sector is religious tourism, with many people interested in visiting various mission stations around KZN, a number of which are located on the KZN South Coast. These were started by an enigmatic Austrian monk, Franz Pfanner, and a group of Trappist monks in 1880. Starting with Marianhill, they went on to set up outstations in rural areas around KZN, all of which are great attractions for tourists. To leverage this, we are launching the Religious Tourism Route on 14 March which will appeal to a new sector of the tourism market while expanding the rural tourism footprint.
