    The importance of tourism for economic and social development in the African continent – in the second half of the 20th century – is well documented in tourism research with a conclusion that only African countries that have adopted a tourism strategy are converging towards the US real product per capita. This paper analyses the role of tourism in promoting human development in sub-Saharan Africa using data from a questionnaire undertaken in Inhambane province, Mozambique in 2010, a region that adopted a tourism strategy. A logistic regression for randomized response data model is used, taking into account the answers bias in the data. Policy implications of the research findings are discussed.
