I really love this interview with Ventures Africa.
Here’s an excerpt:
The media portrays the African continent as a no-go-zone. How do you feel about this label and how will you rate the African tourism system based on your personal experiences?
It is a real pity that many people still have this view of Africa. I still see so many travel excursions advertised as “charity drives” or “safari trips.” There are issues that need to be dealt with when it comes to infrastructure and customer service in some countries on the continent but these can be managed through strong leadership. The Tourism system in countries like Gambia, South Africa, Kenya, Morocco to name but a few should be an example for other nations. Africa is a rich and diverse continent, with so many different terrains and landscapes, there is so much beauty. I hope that tourism bosses from various countries are given the platform they need in order to encourage people to visit African countries for more than just the animals and charity.
Take a peek and let me know what you think.
