Tourism occupancy rates of establishments offering accommodation varies regionally and seasonally. Some places find themselves short of business during the quiet months, but so busy that they are unable to keep up with the demand during the peak seasons.
During this busy time, it may be worthwhile to take stock and consider the aspect of occupancy rates for tourism in Southern Africa. You may have a little time on your hands and wanting to explore the topic or even obtain the statistics of other similar establishments.
The exact location of your offering may also influence this important percentage.
It is therefore important not only to be aware of this rate, but also in a position to best manage it and so increase your occupancy rates all year around. South Africa is an absolute jewel and mighty tourist attraction. There are a myriad of sights to see, places to enjoy, tastes to savour, mountains to climb, seas to swim, routes to tour, etc. Accordingly with some proper and sound management, South African occupancy rates can be increased and optimised to accommodate both the country and neighbouring countries.
Whilest Summer is always a popular holiday time, the winters - cuddling up by a fire and viewing the snow on the mountains also sounds amazing. Similarly attracting other niches markets in off-peaks times adds substantial value and too increases occupancy rates, and so profitability.
Local South Africans enjoy small breaks throughout the year and families with small children will partake in cheaper holiday times - also to avoid the great rush and frantic crowds.
