BouBou Bed & Breakfast once again won first place at the Lilizela Awards 2018 in the category 4 Star Bed & Breakfast in the North West Province.

The Lilizela Awards is an initiative of the National Department of Tourism, which has been held annually since 2012, and awards people, experiences and places in South Africa that promote tourism in South Africa and represent the best that the tourism industry in South Africa can offer local and foreign tourists. Any establishment graded by TGCSA can enter in different categories and grading levels, and the prizes are awarded per province. Public participation and perception of the business plays a big role, with votes by the public and the Tripadvisor score of the establishment counting 80% of the score. The other 20% is awarded by a panel of judges (in 2018 this panel consisted of 28 judges from all over the tourism industry).

Data from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa’s Tourism Analytics Programme – a platform with reviews for establishments that have an online presence and includes reviews from TripAdvisor – was also used by the judges. The judging process and results were audited by Nexia SAB & T.

The award ceremony for the 2018 competition took place on 27 October during a star studded event at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
