Domestic tourism to stabilise, a bumpy international ride and a bullish outlook for BON Hotels
Domestic tourism in South- and Southern Africa looks set to stabilise in 2023 to pre-2019 levels, after pent-up demand helped the sector recover and grow, and gave rise to trends such as backyard travelling, “workactions” and longer stays. The increasing cost of living will see affordable accommodation and destinations in small towns becoming more sought-after for local travel, while hotel occupancy and room rates are expected to continue increasing.
Following the demise of several domestic airlines and the spike in the cost of flights, this year should see an increase in capacity with more airlines coming online and a welcome stabilisation of prices. This is according to CEO of BON Hotels, Guy Stehlik, who has shared some of his predictions for the year.
International tourism to South Africa remains below pre-2019 levels and inconsistent in nature, he points out, predominantly affected by political and economic uncertainties, airline capacity issues, industry staff shortages, and the high price of jet fuel, among others.
BON Hotels Testimonials
I want to recommend BON Hotels to other owners of properties. The take-on process was quick and handled professionally. I really feel valued as a Franchisee and that BON Hotels has me, my team and our guests’ best interest at heart. I want to thank the BON team for taking a week out of their busy schedules to travel up to Rustenburg and assist our team with System Integrations, Marketing, Operations and HR. It made us feel part of the family!

The partnership with BON Hotels started on the 1st of August 2018 and together we have experienced the best of times and the worst of times more prevalent now with COVID. I believe that it is during the worst of times and considering a declining economy that a brand has the opportunity to show its true worth and dedication to your business – and I believe that BON Hotels and its incredible Sales and Marketing team has done just that for us! Driven by passion its Sales and Marketing Team has managed to keep us afloat during the ongoing pandemic through their innovation, dedication, and can-do attitude towards our two properties.
I am proud to be associated with the BON Group and wouldn’t think twice to recommend them, it is a no brainer for me.
