Tourists from Russia have been increasingly interested in Africa, with the tourist flow to some countries rising 20-30% over the past two years, an adviser on transport of the Russian Tourism Agency’s head, Dmitry Gorin, told TASS on Wednesday.
"We note the growing interest in Africa, it is multifaceted and even has different climate zones. For example, tourism to Africa has grown 20-30% over the past two years depending on the country, we may speak about hundreds of thousands of tourists. The outbound tourism flow recovered to the level of 2014, and the fall lasted for two years," Gorin said.
Travel companies also report the growing interest in Africa, he noted. This year charter flights to the Gambia were launched, and such safe tourism destinations as Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania, the Republic of South Africa and Botswana are actively developing.
