Cameroon – Tourism: Cameroon among the 17 least expensive tourist destinations in Africa, according to the World Economic Forum

Written by Deckson N.

According to the 2017 edition of the World Tourism Economic Competitiveness Index (WEF), Cameroon is one of the 17 most competitive tourist destinations in Africa. Cameroon ranks 15th in Africa and ranks 58th in the world.

On the scale of the CEMAC zone, as has been the case for many world rankings in recent years, Cameroon, dubbed “Africa in miniature“, because of the diversity of its tourist resources, is once again outclassed in this hit parade by Gabon (which is also ahead of mastodons such as Morocco and South Africa), ranked 5th cheapest African tourist destination in 2017, and 25th at the world level.

Egypt (ranked 2nd in the world), Algeria (4th in the world), Tunisia (9th in the world) and Botswana (13th in the world) dominate this ranking across Africa (see ranking Below).

The price level is one of the 14 price indicators taken into account in the global competitiveness index, which also includes parameters such as safety, health and hygiene, openness to the development of natural resources, tourism marketing, and road and airport infrastructure.
