In June 2003,
The Cameroon Storycontinues to attract the most readers. Hon. Pierre Hele, Minister of Tourism, laid the foundation for this story in 2001 by taking our editors on the most exciting tour one could imagine. His Ministry team of Ebenezer Elimbi, Jean Npombo and Boniface Piga were professional and untiring in their efforts, As a result, we gathered enough material and photos for a series of books in print and CD.

In the Top Entry Pages category, " Guinea, Land of Contrasts” by Muguette Goufrani is our front. Thanks to Hon. Sylla Hadja Koumba Diakite, Guinea's Minister of Tourism, and Mr. Ibrahima Diallo, Tourism Director, Muguette toured the country. She journeyed from the Coastal Slave Route to the Northern Highlands, returning with hundreds of photos and a story that continues to unfold.

What attracts people to our web site? African Fashion and Shopping have been consistent favorites during the past two years, as has our section on Great Hotels and the Ethiopian Journey series.

About ATA: With the Africa Travel Association's 30th Jubilee Congress in 2005, the excitement is mounting as our magazine's editors and New York office staff are going through the archives in our effort to present a landmark souvenir capsule of ATA's progress up to the present time. The above profile is one important step in that direction, as the association's great strength is the caliber of people in its chapters and on its Board of Directors.
