Main Description

Edited by Tourism plays a significant role in the development of Africa. To promote education and research in tourism in the African continent, in 2000 Atlas founded an African chapter during its inaugural conference in Mombasa, Kenya. After the conference in Mombasa, Atlas Africa organized six other conferences:

  • Community tourism: options for the future, Arusha, Tanzania, in 2003.
  • Leadership, culture and knowledge: gateway to sustainable tourism in Africa, Pretoria, South Africa , in 2004.
  • Contested landscapes in tourism: culture, conservation and consumption, Mombasa, Kenya, in 2006.
  • Tourism and wealth creation, Kampala, Uganda, in 2007.
  • Tourism for Development: Environmental Sustainability, Poverty Reduction and Empowering Communities, Gaborone, Botswana, in 2009.
  • Sustainable tourism and environmental education, a natural link, Kampala, Uganda, in 2011.

The proceedings of the conferences in 2003, 2004 and 2006 were published in 2007 in three volumes. Proceedings of the conferences of 2007 were published in 2008 in Volume 4 and 5, and the proceedings of the conferences of 2009 were published in 2010 in Volume 6 and 7. Volume 8 and 9 consists of the proceedings of the conference in Kampala. The 2011 Conference was organised jointly with the University of Makerere, Kent State University, the University of North Texas, the Uganda Wildlife Authority, Nature Uganda, the Nature Palace Foundation, and the Uganda Tourist Board.

These nine volumes present the current state of the art of predominantly applied research in tourism in Africa. The two new volumes with conference papers provide valuable insights in the development of tourism in Africa, and are a source of inspiration for all researchers, practitioners and lovers of tourism in Africa.
