Safety Tips in dealing with RIP currents on the South African Coast Line

Finally (April 2014) on the official website of South Africa on tourism http://www.tourism.gov.za//pages/rip-current.aspx, yet hidden from the general webpage on "safety and travel tips" http://www.tourism.gov.za/Pages/Safety--Travel-Tips-Info.aspx which only addresses security tips against criminality!

Meeting with Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency leads to nothing

After the meeting with Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency on the 8th of February 2013, Safe Coastal Tourism sent a letter with the report of the meeting as a reminder. The mail and reminders stayed unanswered.

Commitment to Safe Coastal Tourism to disseminate leaflets and video along the South African Coast Line remains an empty promise

It is most disappointing that to this day (we are December 2016) the National Department of Tourism (NDT), the highest authority in tourism in South Africa, hasn't kept its promises, which it made to Safe Coastal Tourism NPO during the previous legislation.
