This is the third-year, Loliwe Train will be snaking its way to the not-to-be missed event on the South African entertainment calendar.
Loliwe’s fundamental value is to market tourism destinations in the province and untap tourism products. It seeks to increase economical benefits and conscientious potential investors what KZN has to offer.
According to Ntebo Lesetla-Peri chief organizer of Loliwe, international guests have been enquiring about the project, such as Botswana investors who are keen in investing in the province.
“This year we’re having two trains-one for international guests and other fun train. This is due to the demand from clients who are drawn from Diplomats to business people,” quipped Ntebo.
The invited guests (who will depart aboard Loliwe on Thursday) from the revamped Park Station will rub shoulders with recovered Head of State President JG Zuma, City of Jhb Mayor Mpho Parks Tau, KZN Economic Dev and Tourism MEC Mike Mabuyakhulu, and Prasa boss Lucky Montana.
Some of the festivities awaiting guests on Saturday (in the Loliwe/KZN Tourism marquee) includes fashion show-showcasing the hottest of KZN fashion talent, thumping music, horse-racing and of course, skimpily clad young-ones.
