UNWTO: Africa Remains the Least Visited Continent
Africa is still one of the least visited continents in the world in spite of vigorous efforts to overturning the trend.
The UNWTO says that Africa is the second least visited region after the Americas, recording four percent 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 traveler confidence in Africa. Europe, Asia and the Pacific led growth with a seven percent increase in arrivals each. Middle East and the Americas witnessed five percent and three percent growth.
