Focussing on Halal Tourism in South Africa

With between 400,000 and 600,000 thousand Muslim visitors arriving in South Africa annually, Halal tourism is a market with huge growth potential for the country that has remained relatively untapped.

Islamic travellers are prepared to spend money on Halal tourism, with their global expenditure sitting at USD155 billion in 2016. This is forecast to reach USD220 billion by 2020 and USD300 billion by 2026.

According to this year’s Global Muslim Travel Index, the number of international Muslim travellers in 2016 was estimated to be 121 million, a figure that is expected to grow to 156 million by 2020.
