With less than a week to go, Durban is ready to welcome thousands of visitors to the city for Africa’s Travel Indaba.

The event will be hosted at Durban’s Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre (ICC Durban).

This year’s edition of the annual event will take place under the theme “Unlimited Africa” from 13 to 16 May and is organised by South African Tourism and hosted in partnership with the KwaZulu-Natal province and the city of Durban.


Africa’s Travel Indaba attracts tourism and hospitality buyers from around the world who are specifically interested in Africa.

Buyers and exhibitors will attend the three-day tourism trade gathering, considered the continent’s premium tourism trade event.

From new and authentic proudly African experiences to established tourism products, Indaba provides excellent networking opportunities.

This is in addition to the renowned hospitality provided by Africa’s welcoming people.


Africa’s Travel Indaba showcases the diverse leisure tourism products that the continent has to offer.

Over 1 100 exhibitors from across Africa will promote their tourism-related offerings to international and local buyers.

The aim is to foster and enhance connections and collaborations that shape the future of the African tourism sector.


Delegates attending the event can look forward to experiencing many of the city’s tourist attractions.

The lively coastal city of Durban, with its historic buildings and museums, also offers vibrant township experiences.

There will also be opportunities to venture into and explore the rest of the province.


However, it is not all about hard work.

Visitors will also get to sample the best of Durban’s hospitality and cuisine.

Delegates can enjoy the tourist offerings from the city once dubbed “the city where the fun never sets”.

Durban’s hospitality sector is set to benefit from the influx of visitors heading to the city for the event.

The event will benefit the city’s local economy since increased visitor flows will generate income for the city’s tourism and hospitality sectors.
