4 Slide no. 4 © South African Tourism 2010 Source: 1 CIA; Deepening Consumer Insights, 2006 Our target market comprises of about 14% of the population, which equates to around 12.8 million German travellers Total Number of People in Our Market Positive Segments = 3,877k 30% = 12.8 million 100% Total German population 1 Adult population over the age of 14 years Who have travelled abroad in the last 5 years With the exclusions based on the sampling plan 82.4 million (100% of total) 14.6 million (18% of total) 21.4 million (26 % of total) 64.1 million (78% of total) 12.8 million (14% of total) People who meet new income floor requirements NSSA 1043 K Wanderlusters 1088 K Senior Explorers 667 K Family Travellers 1078K NSSA 1043 K Wanderlusters 1088 K Senior Explorers 667 K Focus Segments = 2,798k Consumers: Target Segments Defining the Relevant Market

5 Slide no. 5 © South African Tourism 2010 But there are Two Core Segments in our international leisure focus The other segment categories are pursued on a tactical or opportunistic basis only. The ‘Next Stop South Africa’ (NSSA) segment The NSSA segment represents our traditional market. They are wealthier experienced international travellers, usually between the ages of 40 and 60 whose children (if any) have left home. They typically look for natural beauty and authentic cultural experiences. They prefer independent or small group travel, and look for luxury and comfort as part of their experience. Safety is a key consideration when choosing a new destination. Safari is a big draw-card when travelling to Africa. The ‘Wanderluster’ Segment The “Wanderluster” segment is made up of younger singles or couples between the ages of 25 and 40 and generally do not have children. They are young urban professionals earning higher incomes, and they already have considerable travel experience. Their desired experience centres on nature, culture and adventure with a strong liking for “urban vibe”. While also concerned with issues of safety and comfort, these consumers are driven more by the emotional appeal of a destination compared to the more practical NSSAs. They are generally more positive about South Africa in every market than any other segment but they also want to travel the world.

6 Slide no. 6 © South African Tourism 2010  What Travel Means to Germans? For Germans, travel is all about gathering life experiences that broaden their horizons and allows them to relax, far from their stressful lives Source: Grail Research Analysis of focus group discussions in Germany  Travel allows Germans to gather life experiences  They cherish experiences that are unique and want things that are different from their daily routine  Germans begin to better appreciate the life and luxuries they have, once they have travelled and seen satisfaction of the locals in poorer countries Gathering Life Experience Broadening of Horizons Breaking-Free Bragging Rights  Germans believe travelling broadens their horizons Germans who interact a lot with people from different culture, who have varied mentalities, usually develop greater tolerance towards other people  It gives them a new way of thinking and a new perspective towards life  Travel is seen as a way to escape from the stress of the work place, rules and regulations of Germany, and daily routines  Germans seek destinations that have beautiful landscape and where the environment is different from Germany, where they way of life is not as fast paced as in Germany  Travelling gives Germans the right to ‘Brag’ among friends, relatives, and family  The places they have been to are seen as badges on their sleeves  Travelling adds another dimension to their individuality, which they believe makes one more interesting as a person

7 Slide no. 7 © South African Tourism 2010  What Travel Experience is for Germans? German travellers seek adventure, and enjoy planning and customizing their trips, to ensure that they experience the authentic local culture Pushing the Boundaries Seeking Variety Individualizing Trip Immersing in the Local Culture  Travel for Germans is about pushing their boundaries  Germans are willing to go slightly outside their comfort zone/usual lives to experience something different, unexpected, or challenging  However, they avoid dangerous or life- threatening situations, when seeking adventure  Travel for Germans is about doing a varied set of activities  It includes gathering multiple unique experiences, and doing things they like  Germans like travelling to destinations that offer variety of landscape, animals, and activities  Germans want to plan their trip. They want to decide what activities they do, what they experience, and how they do it  Customization of the offering is key for them. They feel packaged tours are designed with a focus on tourist attractions and this will not allow them to interact with locals and have an authentic experience  Germans travel to get authentic, life enriching, unique experiences  To experience the local culture and mentality of the people, Germans travel off the beaten track  Travelling in local buses and exploring the flea markets is an integral part of their travel, along with trying local cuisines at local restaurants Source: Grail Research Analysis of focus group discussions in Germany

8 Slide no. 8 © South African Tourism 2010  Travel Planning Process – Selection of a destination Movies, travel brochures, magazines, and word of mouth inspire Germans to travel, who then research destinations and seek value for money options Consideration  Once Germans have shortlisted their dream destinations, they extensively research them  They refer to multiple sources for information, such as reviews on the internet from past travellers, online travel agencies, and travel agents Inspiration  It all starts with inspiration for Germans. They always have a list of ‘Dream Destinations’ in their mind and shortlist countries to visit from this list  The ‘Dream Destinations’ or the ‘Inspiration List’ is built through inputs from various sources of inspiration such as word of mouth, movies, travel brochures, and magazines Selection  Germans weigh the perceived value they will get for the money they will spend to visit different destinations, before finalizing the one that they travel to  They are willing to visit destinations that are not at the top of their list of dream destinations, if they get a ‘good offer’  They are open to multiple booking channels such as online, travel agents, and self-build holidays Source: Grail Research Analysis of focus group discussions in Germany

9 Slide no. 9 © South African Tourism 2010  Germans’ Perceptions about South Africa Germans perceive South Africa as offering a limited variety of options; however, those who visit the country are delighted and take home a positive image  Germans who have travelled to South Africa carry home positive memories from their trip  Sharing the travel experience and photographs post trips is a part of German society. German travellers to South Africa also do this, spreading a positive image about the country, through word of mouth Positive Experience Sharing Source: Grail Research Analysis of focus group discussions in Germany Low Awareness  Germans have a low awareness about South Africa They primarily associate South Africa with safari, wine, and Cape Town, lacking awareness about the variety the country has to offer Positively Surprised with the Variety on Offer  Germans who travel to South Africa are positively surprised by the variety on offer, especially the wildlife and the landscape  Germans who have not visited South Africa get intrigued and excited about the country when they are made aware of it, through channels such as word of mouth from past South Africa travellers  South Africa is perceived as an expensive destination by Germans. In addition, given their low awareness about the country, Germans believe that it is low value for money – as it is not an authentic African experience and has limited things to offer  Germans feel that their personal safety and security will be at risk in South Africa, and the African continent as a whole. This includes but is not limited to political instability and violence

10 Slide no. 10 © South African Tourism 2010 Variety of landscape, animals, and activities that South Africa offers attracts German tourists, along with friendly people, good service, and warm weather Source: Grail Research Analysis of focus group discussions in Germany  South Africa’s variety in terms of its offering of different landscape, animals, and activities, attracts German tourists Variety   South Africa has sunny winters and warm summers. Germans want to escape the cold and dark winters of Germany and South Africa provides a perfect getaway to them Pleasant Weather   South Africa is well connected to Europe and Germany through direct flights, operated by reputed airlines Direct Flights   South Africa has a time-zone overlap with Germany. Therefore travellers do not suffer from a jet lag while travelling to South Africa Overlap in time zone   South African restaurants and hotels provide excellent service, when compared to Germany, making it an attractive option for Germans Good Service   Germans want to explore a country’s culture and meet the locals. The open and friendly nature of South African thus attracts Germans to the country Friendly People   Travel to South Africa – Drivers

11 Slide no. 11 © South African Tourism 2010 Low awareness about South Africa’s offerings and its perception as a non- authentic African experience, disincline Germans from travelling to South Africa Source: Grail Research Analysis of focus group discussions in Germany  Germans are concerned about the safety and security situation in South Africa Germans perceive South Africa as an unsafe country, and have negative perceptions about the security in the country Inability to move around freely, to experience the local culture and mentality of the people, also makes visiting South Africa an unappealing choice for Germans Security Concerns   Germans perceive South Africa as an expensive travel destination They believe it is expensive to travel to South Africa, and expensive to spend time in the country as well Germans rate South Africa as a poor value-for-money travel destination, since they believe the value they get for the amount they end up paying is less than what they can get elsewhere, such as Australia Expensive   Germans travel to African countries, to experience the true African culture However, South Africa comes across as too European in culture, and is perceived as a non- authentic African experience Non- Authentic Africa   Germans are not aware about South Africa, and its varied set of offerings Many believe South Africa has little variety to offer and hence, refrain from visiting the country Lack of Awareness   Travel to South Africa – Barriers 

49 Slide no. 49 © South African Tourism 2010 Typical day when on a leisure trip to SA -Its all about the explanation that they are given for e.g. if they are given a “traditional beer "to drink – explain when this is typically drunk and link a story with it On a game drive, of they have a local ranger – that will be something special – because for them its a real SA experience Things that would delight German tourists: -Give them a SA cocktail menu to take home (so they can make SA cocktails at home) - Tell them typical SA stories / myths / legends – give them a copy to go home with -Give them typical SA recipes – so they can take the SA experience home with them. -Make it easy for them to find restaurants / places to go out – have a knowledgeable front desk – provide them with transport if need be - Apply environmental conscious business practices e.g. separate waste & encourage recycling, stop engines of coaches and cars when waiting for passengers, fresh towels only on request, save power etc. D E L I G H T T H E M ?
