Three of South Africa’s popular cities namely Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town are soon to be beamed live to Turkey’s citizens on national television.
Turkish citizens will, for the first time in history, watch South Africa’s popular tourist attractions on television in a documentary series. 

This follows an initiative by Turkey veteran journalists Ataman Erkul, Mustafa Sonmez and Serhan Yeclik from AE Production, Hurnyet Daily News who partnered with the Turkish Embassy in South Africa to showcase what the country has to offer in terms tourism.

The three journalists will travel to selected tourist attractions to produce a documentary series to expose potential  Turkish tourists to the what South Africa has to offer.  
Mr Ataman Erkul told The Diplomatic Society within hours of landing at O.R Tambo International Airport that he is impressed thus far about what South Africa can offer to Turkey and the international tourist.

Erkul said that South Africa was a gateway to the African continent.  “As soon as you enter the airport you can see that this is a beautiful country where you can bring your family on holiday,” Erkul said.
Erkul further said that he is certain that his fellow citizens will come in numbers once they have witnessed what the documentary series will showcase about South African cities.

Mr Kaan Esener, Ambassador of Turkey to South Africa who hosted a reception for the journalists said, “When the idea was first brought to our embassy we felt it was a noble concept which we will support.  “This, we hope, will attract many Turkish tourists to South Africa as a destination of choice during their holidays.” 

“This documentary is not only about tourism and I hope it will educate fellow Turkish citizens about South Africa’s history and heritage,” Esener added.
