Many travellers are opting for African safari trips this year
A tourism organisation has reported strong growth in the popularity of African destinations, specifically among people who enjoy adventure holidays.
According to the Association of British Travel Agents, more and more holidaymakers are opting for African nations this year. Having a comprehensive
travel insurance policy in place could prove useful for those planning holidays.
Demand for holidays in South African destinations such as Namibia and Botswana is particularly high, the organisation said.
Safari trips are undoubtedly the star performers, with travellers showing more interest in visiting sites for viewing wildlife. Countries such as Kenya and Tanzania promise unique safari holidays.
Africa's diverse attractions are largely attributed for the improvement in its popularity among tourists.
A spokeswoman for the organisation said: "The biggest growth is probably in Africa. There are lots of different countries there from Malawi to Namibia and lots of southern African countries - South Africa has seen a huge growth in recent years."
