Developing Small Firms in Township Tourism
Emerging Tour Operators in Gauteng, South Africa
The aim of this article is to present recent findings on the challenges that face a particular group of these emerging tourism small firms or small, medium and micro-enterprises (SMMEs) in South Africa. More specifically, the focus of attention falls upon the segment of emerging black-owned tour operators within the context of the growth of the segment of 'township tourism'. Within the existing literature on tourism small firms the major focus so far has been upon the accommodation sub-sector. Indeed, there is remarkably little research on the tour operating sector, especially in the developing world.
