BMI View:

The South African tourism industry is poised for moderate yet steady growth in 2018 and over the next five years to2022. The market has significant organic potential for development but faces numerous challenges. The country presents touristswith a variety of attractions, including well-established safari holidays, beach destinations and a multitude of historical and culturaldestinations. The hotel sector is relatively developed and most budget levels are well catered for, particularly in destinations such asDurban and Cape Town. Tourism growth will be driven by a regional uptick in demand for international air travel, rising spendingpowers in key regional and international source markets and improved air travel routes. Nevertheless, despite the positives, SouthAfrica faces a number of challenges, including limited infrastructure, ongoing security concerns in the country, a weak investmentclimate and counter-productive bureaucratic barriers, such as visa requirements.
