Africa Slums Tours
These are escorted tours into the impoverished communities of Africa living within the urban and rural areas. The concept of pro poor tourism in Africa is not new as it has been and is being practiced in South Africa. Soweto and Shanty tours in Johannesburg and Cape Town respectively are not new tours but have been ongoing slum safaris that are changing the face of South Africa's Slum areas. Kibera Slum dwellers in Nairobi - Kenya are gradually beginning to reap the benefits of Kibera Slum Tours just as other Kenya Slums dwellers, courtesy of Victoria Safaris.
Africa is the poorest continent in the world with its large number of poor populace living on less than a-dollar-a-day. At the same time Africa is the most toured continent due to its massive and abundant wildlife, daily 12 hourly sunshine, rich natural resources, mountains, lovely beaches and welcoming cultural people. All these tourism revenue earners to the African continent, most individual African countries, are yet to plough the tourism revenue towards the alleviation of poverty among their poor communities - not to mention the wiping out of Slums in the Africa continent.
"Imagine Africa without a slum. A continent where every individual is accessible to basic human amenities such as, adequate health facilities, adequate housing and sanitary facilities, adequate food and clean drinking water."
This is what Victoria Safaris is advocating for through tourism business as a part of contribution towards wiping out slums and poverty in Africa, including Kenya, cannot be left to the individual governments alone to clear but rather be should be the priority of those corporate firms that contribute to the improvement of the economies of these states including players in the tourism sector. Visitors who come and see these slums are sure to contribute to the upgrading of the African slums.
