The Sub-Saharan African Hotel Sector - July 2019

“Since 2015, the pipeline of chain hotel rooms in Sub-Saharan Africa has grown by almost half, which portends a significant increase in chain-hotel capacity across the region. Otherwise, the franchising of hotels is on the rise in the region – especially in East Africa – and the underserved Francophone countries of West Africa offer particularly interesting opportunities for hotel-chain expansion.”
