As we head towards the end of 2018, the Tourism Update team would like to thank our industry partners and friends for all their support during the year.

2018 saw tourism across southern and East Africa face challenges, enjoy achievements and embrace new ideas and innovations; we look forward to what 2019 promises for tourism, and to working together to make Africa the greatest tourism destination in the world.

We wish you a safe and happy festive season, and a very happy New Year.

This is the last issue of Tourism Update for 2018. The next issue will come out on January 7, 2019.
