The data collection techniques that were employed were both qualitative and quantitative in nature. Face-to-face interviews were conducted, as well as 320 surveys within the 6 regions of the Western Cape. The survey questionnaire was developed by the CTRU.

-Source markets and their characteristics

-Means of transport to and in the Western Cape

-Number of nights spent in the Western Cape and the type of accommodation used.

-the travel size group and the main reason for visiting

-regions visited and activities participated in
