Angola has considerable potential as a leisure tourism destination. It is well connected to the European and American markets by several international air carriers, and has an increasingly diverse wildlife product as well as interesting and varied terrain. It is also well situated in southern Africa in terms of attracting those tourists already travelling to other more popular destinations such as South Africa, Botswana and Namibia. However, at present, business tourism is the main form of international travel to the country, with a thriving oil and gas sector that has attracted significant overseas investment. Similar to other countries like Nigeria, this pushes up the prices of tourist services, such as accommodation, and consequently has a serious impact on the competitiveness of the country as a leisure destination.
