Africa is hoping for more tourists – 305 new top hotels in the pipeline – With 45 hotel projects Egypt trusts in re-strengthening of the tourism industry

Cairo, Egypt – June 10, 2015 – Africa has lots of problems: Ebola epidemic, fights, attacks and tumults after the Arab Spring. The sun-kissed holiday destination at the Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic and Indian Ocean suffered strongly during the past years. In West African countries such as Sierra Leone the beautiful beaches remain empty as well as in Kenya in the East of Africa and Tunisia by the Mediterranean Sea. Nevertheless the continent trusts in a re-strengthening of the multi-billion dollar worth tourism business. According to TOPHOTELPROJECTS, the worldwide leading provider for global b2b hotel data, currently 305 high class hotels with 73,100 rooms are in the pipeline for Africa.
