mozambique-registers-decline-in-tourismThe number of tourist arrivals to Mozambique registered an increase of five per cent last year as compared to 2015, says Minister of Culture and Tourism Silva Dunduru. The number of international tourists in 2015 was 1,633,935, and the figure rose to 1,715,360 in 2016.

 

However, the amount of money invested in tourism undertakings fell substantially last year to 107.8 million US dollars in 2016 from 193 million USD in 2015.

 
He told the media when announcing the “Welcome for Easter” campaign for tourists, mostly from South Africa, who will visit Mozambique over the Easter holidays.

 

Dunduru believed that the official figures might underestimate the number of visitors to Mozambique. “There are tourists who come to Mozambique, but do not stay in hotels. We could not include these in the list of visitors.”

 

Within the continent, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Swaziland accounted for 64 per cent of African tourists visiting the country while outside Africa the main countries of origin of tourists visiting Mozambique were Germany, Britain, Portugal, United States, Holland, France, Italy, India, Pakistan, Brazil and China.
