Cape Town - This week the world celebrates Africa Day, a date that honours the day 30 independent African countries signed a founding charter in Ethiopia.
It’s fitting therefore that the tourism industry in Africa is not only growing, but growing enough to be a focus at the recent Tourism Indaba held in Durban.
The United Nations World Tourism Organisation adds to this, projecting that international tourist arrivals in Africa are to grow by four percent this year.
Managing Director of global flight search and travel deals platform Cheapflights.co.za, Andrew Shelton says: “Searches to African countries are on the rise, with travellers gravitating towards these destinations. But it’s not just international travellers that are flocking to the continent – our data shows that travel within African countries is also strong.”
