Africa Travel Directory

We have enjoyed and benefited from using this convenient and comprehensive travel trade directory in 2003, and it has proven to be a real time saver in our circulation and marketing efforts. There are facts and key contacts for every country on the continent; information that one will not find elsewhere, even on the Internet. What's more, you'll find that it's concise, correct and current. There's no exhausting or frustrating search -- since you will usually find what you need to know in seconds.

As our friend Louis D'amore, founder of the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism stated, "It is a tremendous resource for any travel professional interested in Africa. Burkhard Herbote, the person that devotes his life in putting this and other World Travel Directories together is a great friend and supporter of IIPT. He has provided us with important introductions and has been very generous in providing us with contacts to promote our Summits and Conferences."

Mr. Burkhard, whose World Travel & Tourism, Africa contains approximately 13,500 entries, is based in Germany. His publisher is Tony Axon, World of Information, Saffron Walden, Essex, UK. tel. 44-1799-521150. The author's e-mail address is

As publishers of Africa Travel Magazine and Air Highways, the Journal of Open Skies, we congratulate Burkhard Herbote for his hard work and quality publication. We find it a valuable resource and an important time saver.

West African Airports: Of the West African airports we visited recently, from Dakar, Bamako and Cotonou, to Accra and Abidjan, each was in some stage of preparation for the new air age. We hope this decade will herald the dawn of seamless, people-friendly airport operations, with less red tape, plus faster visa and baggage handling. Two concepts I gained from our participation in four world class Eco Conferences, are that airports should become "agoras" (people places) and "garden spots" (green spaces). Perhaps it's time for the greening of Africa's airports.
