Factor correlation analysis between the activities of visitors to the City of Tshwane

Further analysis was deemed necessary to identify possible correlations between any of the activities preferred by the visitors. As illustrated in Table 8.3 below, the highest correlation of 384 was observed between adventure activities and cultural activities. Although the value of this correlation was not significant, it is however worthy of note that both adventure and culture could co-exist in relatively undisturbed natural environments. In the Soshanguve contexts, this would find favourable expression around the pristine eco-friendly Tswiang crater region. Tourists to the area would most likely be attracted primarily by the uniqueness of the Tswaing meteorite crater, then the ecological nature reserve and the cultural attractions within the township. The correlations between the other factors were not significant enough to warrant attention.

In concluding this section, it is necessary to highlight the prevalence and potential propensity of cultural and historically inclined visitors to the Soshanguve community. There is empirical evidence to suggest that most tourists to the City of Tshwane attractions would appreciate a visit to the natural environment around the Tswaing meteorite crater. The implication for tourism planning in the Soshanguve community is that four USPs would provide the most viable positions for the urban- rural tourism mix between the City of Tshwane CBD and the Soshanguve community.
