Siya Kolisi’s love for South Africa and its people is no secret. Boasting beautiful coastlines, diverse cultures and many interesting tourist attractions, there is indeed a lot to love about the country. Most recently, the rugby captain has been trending on social media as a result of his video where he urges Americans to visit South Africa. Kolisi took the video while in the United States, encouraging Americans to come and experience the warm weather which Mzansi has to offer during this time of the year. He also made mention of all the great things which the country has to offer, including the warmth of its people, delicious dishes and ubuntu. Turns out, our @Springboks Captain @SiyaKolisi is currently in USA, and is inviting all Americans to #visitsouthafrica to come experience #Ubuntu, natural beauty, wildlife, our food and of course our sunny weather. Danko my Captain.🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦 We are ready to welcome them.… pic.twitter.com/XGOtnUWFdg — Sonto Ndlovu🇿🇦❤ (@sontondlovu) November 21, 2023 ‘I’m in America with my family. It’s winter here and it’s only going to get colder so I just want to encourage people that it’s summer in South Africa. It’s warm and it’s hot. We have amazing people in our country and I’d like to encourage you to come visit South Africa,’ said Kolisi. ‘Then obviously we have the beach, the safaris, we have so much stories and a rich history where you can learn about South African people, and then also we have a shisanyama ( braai) and magwinya ( vetkoek). They have snow, but we have ubuntu,’ he added. Many social media users took to the comments section, complimenting him on the beautiful and candid manner in which he promoted South Africa. Some even referred to Trevor Noah’s tourism advert, stating how the rugby captain is giving Noah a run for his money. So bad we paid Trevor for nothing 🤷♂️, I mean if Siya could do it without expecting anything from government in return why was Trevor compensated for this ? — Zemveli🇿🇦 (@iamhumanZA) November 21, 2023 Kolisi and his family are no strangers to travel.
