What's a Keeper?
Like one of my advertising agency idols used to say, "If you've got it -- flaunt it."
So my goal was to create colorful, topical, well researched and targeted editions. I began with "Railways of the World," plus "Great Drives" and "Air Highways," paving the way for Africa Travel Magazine in 1995. Rather than make Africa Travel Magazine a quick read, I aimed for "keeper" status right from the start. The result? Twelve years later, our back issues are still in demand.
For example, our "Millennium Yearbook Edition" on Ethiopia is still as fresh as the day it was launched in 2000. Similar editions featuring Angola, Kenya, Cameroon, Uganda, Tanzania, Benin, Morocco, Guinea, Ghana, Angola, Zambia, Namibia and South Africa, enjoy the same lasting appeal.
year we introduce "The Great Cities of Africa," an idea born
at the 3rd United Nations World Urban Forum in Vancouver,
Canada, where we met with mayors from across Africa. Since
Africa's historic cities are capitals of culture and
gateways to sustainable tourism, it stands to reason that a

Have you heard about Africa Travel Magazine's GREAT CITIES OF AFRICA?
We call them "Capitals of Culture and Gateways to Sustainable Tourism and Global Enterprise."
This exciting series debuts in print as a supplement in our coming edition.
The idea was born last summer when I interviewed a delegation of African mayors, and escorted them on a tour of Vancouver, Canada, where the UN 3rd World Urban Forum was in full swing.
That stimulating, week-long experience set the stage for success. Our 2007 Great Cities of Africa spotlight shines on Calabar, Nigeria, proud host of ATA's 10th Ecotourism Symposium - Abuja, Nigeria's Capital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, site of our 32nd World Congress, and Kampala, Uganda, home of the 4th Africa Peace Through Tourism Conference.
In "A Tale of Two Cities" - our editors and candid camera profile cities in various countries we have visited recently. Examples are Yaounde and Douala, Accra and Kumasi, Cape Town and Jo'burg, Nairobi and Mombasa, Lusaka and Livingstone, Arusha and Dar es Salaam, Casablanca and Marrakech. Get the picture?
Each city's airport will be profiled in "Air Highways to Africa," another Africa Travel Magazine supplement. Please visit our award winning, Google-friendly website. Search from over 3,500 pages on Africa travel, trade, transportation, hospitality and tourism.
