With Africa's Travel Indaba, the platform for leisure tourism is returning to showcase what the continent has to offer. The event is scheduled to take place at Durban's Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre (Duban ICC) from May 2 to 5, 2022 and is owned and managed by South African Tourism.

"Africa's Travel Indaba is back with renewed energy and focus on creating a platform for the recovery of our industry. As the African continent, we cannot wait to welcome back international delegates from various parts of the world to reconnect and share our real success stories of resilience, whilst demonstrating Africa's world class tourism products that will continue to give travellers an unforgettable experience. This is our signature leisure tourism trade show, and we are thrilled that we, as a tourism sector, can once again gather in person, network, share ideas and do business that will contribute to the much-needed recovery", says Amanda Kotze-Nhlapo, chief convention bureau officer.

At the last edition of Africa's Travel Indaba in 2019, the show attracted about 6200 delegates from all over the world, with 1033 exhibiting businesses from 19 countries on the continent, showcasing an array of travel and tourism offerings to almost 1177 local, regional and international buyers. Furthermore, almost 452 local, regional and international media representatives participated in Africa's Travel Indaba 2019.

"We know from our research and connections with partners and consumers that travellers increasingly want to live their lives to the fullest again but that they are looking for reassurance that it is indeed safe to travel. With globally-benchmarked health and safety protocols in place, all travellers (domestic, regional and international) can have the comfort of knowing that they will be safe, while enjoying their time in South Africa", concludes Kotze-Nhlapo.
