Launched in May 2013, the Lilizela Tourism Awards aim to recognise and reward the highest levels of excellence in tourism value chain. The name is derived from the Zulu word ‘’Lilizela’’ which means celebrating and praising by ululating when someone has done well. These awards are an initiative of the National Department of Tourism (NDT); spearheaded by South African Tourism and delivered by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.
South Africa has a plethora of Tourism Awards, which all need resources and the same industry stakeholders were invited to the various awards functions. This was not seen as the best use of the already scarce resources. The Lilizela Tourism Awards combine the various awards that recognise excellent performance throughout the whole Tourism Value Chain into ONE premier platform whose sole purpose will be to give recognition and accolade where due. These awards are designed to grow the profile and importance of the tourism industry in South Africa and support the goals of the National Tourism Sector Strategy (NTSS)
