Summary

South Africa's travel and tourism industry contributed 4.8% to the national GDP and represented XX% of the country's total employment in 2011. Total tourist volume, including domestic, inbound and outbound, declined during the review period due to the global financial crisis, which resulted in job losses and low levels of consumer confidence.
