Main Description

Tourism plays a significant role in the development of Africa. To promote education and research in tourism on the African continent, Atlas founded an African chapter during its inaugural conference in Mombassa, Kenya in 2000. After the conference in Mombassa, Atlas Africa organized four other conferences:
  • Community tourism: options for the future, in Arusha, Tanzania, in 2003;
  • Leadership, culture and knowledge: gateway to sustainable tourism in Africa, in Pretoria, South Africa, in 2004;
  • Contested landscapes in tourism: culture, conservation and consumption, in Mombassa, Kenya, in 2006.
  • Tourism and wealth creation, in Kampala, Uganda, in 2007.

This fourth volume consists of the proceedings of the conference in Kampala in 2007 focusing on ‘Tourism, nature conservation and wealth creation in Africa’. The accompanying fifth volume deals with ‘New avenues for tourism and wealth creation in Africa’. These five volumes, together with a book edited by Wishitemi, Spenceley and Wels, present the current state of the art of predominantly applied research in tourism in Africa.
