South Africa Strengthens Muslim-Friendly Travel Sector

South Africa ranked as one of the 10 most Muslim-friendly travel destinations this year, among non-organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) countries in the annual Mastercard- Crescent Rating Global Muslim Travel Index.

The organisation has implemented a number of initiatives geared towards developing the Muslim-friendly tourism market, to drive awareness around travel preferences and to spread the word that the city is an ideal destination for the Muslim traveller.

“There is more to marketing Cape Town as a destination than showcasing what we already have, we can do more to make our city a welcoming tourism environment for visitors whose needs are specific,” outlined Enver Duminy, CEO, Cape Town Tourism.

A recent study found Halal tourism is one of the fastest growing global travel industry sectors.
