Abstract

The study examines factors that influence demand for intra- sub-Saharan Africa countries’ tourism for 46 bilateral countries using a dynamic panel (system GMM) data model technique. The study employs most common macroeconomic variables and some critical social variables that help explain demand for African tourism. Results from the study suggest that while most common variables are significant, intra-SSA tourists consider internet usage important and prefer to visit less urbanized regions in SSA. However, there is enough evidence in the study to conclude that reasons for travelling within Africa are not much different than for international tourists.
