Abstract

This research article is an overview of the traditional and current cuisine of the Mbila community. The Mbila community lives in the area of Sodwana Bay, Maputaland situated on the north eastern coast of South Africa. The community has a high unemployment rate which leads to poverty. The promotion of the Mbila cuisine as a sustainable tourism product could be used to uplift the community.

The tourism industry of Sodwana Bay was also investigated and discussed according to sustainable tourism principles. The focus was on the three aspects of sustainable tourism, namely: the economy, the environment and the host community.

The main goal is to investigate and describe the traditional and current cuisine of the Mbila community and the place thereof in the tourism industry of Sodwana Bay. Guidelines for the implementation of the research project are provided.

The implementation of the research project can play a positive role in the community. It could result in employment, entrepreneurial activities, improvement of infrastructure, development of secondary trades and the expansion of food production. There are other similar communities in South Africa that could benefit from the implementation of this research project.
