Unmanaged and poorly planned travel and tourism is said to pose serious threats to the future of Africa, especially on the environment, cultures, local customs and the natural resources of host countries.
This has also resulted in the industry posing a seriously impact on the sustainability of Africa and its communities.
As a result, an international campaign to raise awareness of the impact that travel and tourism have on Africa was yesterday launched in South Africa.
The Heritage Environmental Management Company has introduced the international campaign, which aims at reducing the impact of in-bound tourism on Africa.
It also aims to raise awareness of the impact that travel and tourism have on communities and fragile eco-systems around the continent among in-bound travellers, travel companies and tour operators.??????’??
