Recently, the Ugandan President Mr. Kaguta Museveni accused the tourism ministry of failing to attract more tourist in the country. In 2017, about 1.3 tourists visited Uganda bringing in 1.4 billion dollars in revenue. The Ugandan President was quoted as saying:

"A country like Spain that has nothing to show be visited by 50 million people and Uganda just 2 million people and you are here congratulating yourself? Uganda Tourism Board is mediocre and I don't like that type of mediocrity. Uganda has great potential in tourism...other countries have nothing to show but they manage to attract more tourists." 

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said his Ministry will soon produce a compendium of the festivals across the country as art of efforts to boost tourism and showcase the country's diverse cultures.
 
The Minister disclosed this in Istanbul, Turkey, on Monday while speaking at the ongoing 3rd UNWTO/UNESCO World Conference on Tourism and Culture, jointly organized by the two UN agencies.
 
He said with more than 365 festivals across Nigeria, the country can organize one festival per day all year round, thus boosting domestic and international tourism.

The African Director, Moroccan National Tourism Office, Jalal Imani, has called for collaboration between his country and Nigeria to promote tourism in Africa.

He made the call in Marrakech during a familiarisation trip organised by his agency. 

According to Imani, such collaboration, besides its economic benefits, will promote regional peace and unity, transfer of cultural heritage and further boost bilateral relations between the two countries. 

A presidential aspirant in the 2019 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has revealed his plans to boost the tourism and culture sectors in Nigeria.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that in his recently released policy document, the former Vice President proposed to enlist the help of private sector in transforming the sectors into major earners for the country. The document noted the challenges of the culture and tourism sectors in Nigeria which include inadequate promotion of local culture,

Cultural and heritage attractions are key to tourism development in many countries around the world, and innovation and technology can make these attractions more accessible while preserving their essence, the seminar concluded. It also stressed that innovation and technology should empower, rather than disenfranchise, host populations and communities and can assist them in retaining their authenticity, while cultural heritage development and preservation should be a part of local and national plans for socioeconomic development through tourism and technology.

Google Introduced a Travel Trends Tool

Google announces the launch of a new online tool that now allows users to track air fares according to the time of booking.

The Olojo Festival is a culture festival in the calendar of the Ile-Ife, Osun State which is located in the Southwestern part of Nigeria. It is the celebration of the remembrance of “Ogun”, god of Iron, who is believed to be the first son of Oduduwa, progenitor of the Yoruba people. The festival is held annually in October.

Just by measuring the huge amount of information that travelers have left around the internet about their likings, habits and preferences the sector can personalize services and adapt to the demand.

Today, there are no longer only travel wish lists, but also so-called “not-to-go lists”. Since many places are so seasonally overloaded, we call it over-tourism.

The company will be based in Ethiopia and do business in the entire continent of Africa, enhancing Ethiopia’s logistics infrastructure and connections.
