East-Africa-TourismThe annual Congress of Africa Travel Association (ATA) has selected scenic Rwanda’s Kigali city to be the host this year. The Congress will take place in November 2016.



ATA has chosen “Destination Africa: The Future of African Tourism” as the theme of the 41st Congress, which is set to be held from 14th November to 17th November. Delegates from Africa, USA, Europe and several other countries across the globe will be joining the annual Congress in Rwanda.



East Africa is hosting ATA annual Congress for the third time consecutively. The Congress will focus on the East African region as the single tourist destination in entire Africa.



Rwanda is hosting the Congress for the first time and the gathering will allow the delegates to explore some selective tourist spots in this rapidly growing safari destination. Mount Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and Malindi beaches, Serengeti and Maasai Mara wildlife ecosystem, mountain gorillas in Bwindi and Akagera national park are few of the tourist attractions offered by Rwanda.



In the Congress, numerous tourism executives and travel experts will gather under one roof to hike up tourism in entire African continent. The motto of the Congress is to expose the rich tourism opportunity and deep cultural heritage of the entire African continent to the world.



The East African countries are well connected by their flight services, which allow international tourists to fly between five cities at ease within three hours of time. Kenya Airways acts as the leading air carrier in East Africa. The delegates and ATA Congress participants will have to travel to Kenya or Uganda. Then, they can connect to Kigali easily with only a single visa. The East African Community (EAC) has launched the single visa in 2014 by engaging Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda, to increase competitiveness.
