Tourism Working Group
A Tourism Working Group is now in place for the Hangklip Kleinmond Area. The group was established by the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve in partnership with the Overstrand Municipality.
This follows our meeting held in October 2022. The aim of the working group is to identify tourism opportunities for the local community and to ensure we work together as a collective to grow these opportunities – especially as we prepare to head into the festive season.
To get involved and find out more about the group, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
