Urban tourism, economic regeneration and inclusion: Evidence from South Africa
AbstractTourism is one of the fastest growing economic sectors in sub-Saharan Africa. Although African tourism is dominated by nature tourism and cultural tourism products it must be appreciated that a large segment of the continentâ€™s tourism economy is urban-based and that urban tourism represents a significant element of the continentâ€™s expanding tourism economy. From analysis of the post-apartheid South African experience it is argued that debates about resurgent African urban development and the economic dynamics of urban Africa should not overlook the potential contribution of urban tourism for both driving economic growth and promoting inclusive development.
