Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden (WS NBG) made top honours at the West Rand Chamber of Business and Tourism – a local business association which promotes local businesses.
The glittering awards ceremony was held in late November at the Silverstar Casino, west of Johannesburg. The WS NBG team lead by curator, Xolelwa Mokoena, collected the certificate on behalf of the garden.
This is the second time in a row that the garden bagged these honours. Last year the garden received the platinum medal under the category of National Corporate Large Business Tourism & Leisure.
The criteria for judging covered areas such as ownership and management profile, gender and racial demographics, marketing strategy, participation in other business and investment in infrastructure amongst others.
Mokoena marked the award as a further endorsement of the integral role played by Walter Sisulu NBG in the West Rand’s tourism sector. Congratulations, Halala!
