The UNWTO says that Africa is the second least visited region after the Americas, recording four per cent growth in tourist arrivals between the period of January and June 2018.
The main reason, according to the report titled ‘World Tourism Barometer’, is low traveller confidence in Africa. Europe, Asia and the Pacific led growth with a seven per cent increase in arrivals each. Middle East and the Americas witnessed five per cent and three per cent growth.
