Current State of Tourism in Africa
  • Tourism, with its low barriers to entry and
    ability to create jobs quickly and in rural areas
    is often touted as a panacea sector. Intuitively
    tourism could and should be seized on by
    governments in Africa as priority sector that can
    deliver real returns. This is especially true
    given the natural resource endowments many
    African countries posses. Indeed, when one
    examines the overall economic growth strategies
    of many African countries, tourism is right up
    there, identified as a priority sector.
  • Why then does Africa continue to attract such a
    low proportion of international tourism. The
    answer lies squarely with the lack of real
    investment by African governments in developing
    and marketing their countries as tourism
    destinations. Moreover, where best practice has
    been established and realised, this is not widely
    communicated and learned from.
  • Is it then possible, against this backdrop, to
    develop workable growth strategies that will
    increase the competitiveness of various African
    countries and drive additional tourism receipts?
    Clearly South Africa, Egypt and to a lesser
    degree Kenya, stand out as examples where
    significant investments in destination
    positioning have occurred. There have, however,
    been some questions raised recently whether,
    given the massive budget of South African
    Tourism, the performance in key international
    markets, especially compared to other more paltry
    funded destinations, is adequate.
  • Without seeking to engage in a critique of SA
    Tourism and its current strategies, the
    presentation will focus on a smaller African
    country, with a budget that is only 5 of South
    Africas namely Namibia. By focusing and
    implementing a well thought through growth
    strategy, the presentation will show that smaller
    African countries can indeed take quantum leaps
    in increasing tourism receipts. The presentation
    will unpack some of the tactical as well as
    strategic initiatives that have resulted in a
    well above average performance.
  • In conclusion, based on the Namibian experience,
    suggestions for positioning tourism to access a
    portion of the vast developmental largesse
    available to Africa will be put forward.

The Namibia Brand
Its like a different planet here on earth
Namibia demands a lot, but gives you a lot in
return
I like the idea of going somewhere before the
rest of the world has discovered it
20
The Namibia Brand
Its as if God has finished and youre the first
person there
Its like where the world ends
The animals came right up to me and surrounded
me
21
The Namibia Brand
The quiet that surrounds you lets you look
inside yourself somehow
When you look at the Namibian landscape, you can
see the hand of God.
Its all about the vastness and what it does to
you as a person
22
The Namibia Brand
The openness, silence, vastness, distances,
stars it all makes you feel fulfilled.
Offers real tranquillity, here you can truly get
away from people
Made me feel small, insignificant
all the worries at home paled into
nothing
There are still places in Namibia that you feel
are yet to be discovered
23
