Tour Afrique

Published on July 10, 2016 um 16:11

Explain your idea in details:

The main objective is to boost African tourism by making it very marketable and appealing to the international travelling community and readily accessible. The activities of Tour Afrique is to organize the various tourist attractions into a website so that travelers around the globe can be captivated and love to visit. A brief detail of tourist sites will be provided and why it is definitely a must visit. As part of the activities of Tour Afrique, a complete travelling arrangement which include services like hotelier, flight, tourist site visits and other requirements to ensure a hassle-free and a comfortable visit will be provided by Tour Afrique. Our service will be designed to ensure maximum comfort and a world-class treat to ensure that our tourist always love to visit our African tourists sites again. Again, another aspect of income generation as part of the tourism view, is making known to a great extent the African culture. There are also going to be arrangements where tourists, students from across the globe can be hosted to see some of our wonderful traditional festivals .This would be a great opportunity for people offering African studies around the world a great relief. This would promote culture and understanding of the values and traditions of indigenous Africa for the appreciation of the world. Tour Afrique websites would therefore be very educative, advertising both our unique and beautiful tourist sites and must see African culture and cultural events. Part of the funds generated by the company would be invested in developing these tourist sites and the local communities in projects such as schools, potable water and basic social amenities where these attractions are located to benefit from the impact of tourism. The project is starting with my country Ghana.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

As at 2014 according to the world bank data located on the url "http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/ST.INT.ARVL", Ghana had 1,093,000 tourists visiting the nation in an already sluggishly dying tourism industry. Currently, there is no single organization to promote Ghanaian tourism to the international community. This shows the potential of Tour Afrique and the significant numbers it can add by promoting Ghanaian and African tourism by making it accessible to all using the power of the internet. As at 2013 , a publication revealed $2.5 billion in revenue. The target is to double in 3 years employing expert services, revenues augmented and societies which are blessed with these sites can benefits from the positive impact of tourism through social development . The creation of about 200 jobs at least and potential doubling of the revenue in about 5 years will be a great success. Local industry such as hotelier is also viewed to have some positive boost from Tour Afrique.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The business model is a simple one. The business would rely on the internet as by using our ultra modern website to designed to give details as to our tourist attractions, cultural events and why Ghana is definitely a choice and a must-visit.

Booking and reservations can be made online according to tourists preferences. Tour Afrique collaborates with local hospitality industries to ensure our clients gets the best experience .

Our dedicated Tour guides would also ensure the best of experience of Tourist. Financial sources are mainly from the services we provide to our clients.

The applicable fee that  would be charged from our  customers would be the main source of income. Currently, there are only two main people behind this project, helping make this vision a reality. Myself , originator of the idea and another, Mr. Bright Boasiako an IT specialist who is  working on our website. We are also working with a team to do the field work on our tourist sites and get all the suitable contents such as pictures, videos and write ups  that would be hosted on our website. By what has been done so far, with funding up to $20,000 would give Tour Afrique a good boost and would readily speed up the completion of the whole business  plan and commencement of operation.

This business is one that has longevity because, the naturally given tourist attractions  an cultural appeal are what is harnessed upon. With the expert services to be kept in place and good management, there is a foreseeable long span to this business and the lack of competitors in the market currently is something I am proud of.

Hope this attracts tourism around the globe and becomes an industry itself. How prospective do you think my idea is? https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/4/4333/

You have a nice idea. Just like Airbnb App disrupted the world travelling industry, your Tour Afrique if well implemented can disrupt Africa's tourism industry. Like you said there is no organization in Ghana to promote the country's tourism potential before the international community, therefore you have plenty of room to operate. No worry about being faced with competitors and a crowded market of those who are already in the field there in Ghana. No doubt Africa is blessed with enormous tourism potential that is begging for tappers to tap it and showcase it to the world and also boost the continents GDP. Is nice you are in to show to the world the Africa they don't show on TV. Anytime Africa is shown on an international TV network, is only the slumps that is shown. Whereas the continent is endowed with great tourists sites and some beautiful cities like Cape town, Cairo, Lagos Island, Nairobi, Algiers, Tunis, Dar Es Salaam, Abuja, Abidjan, Johannesburg and Accra. Tourism boost South Africa's economy massively. If you do this, you are on the right part of boosting Ghana economy through Tourism and by large Africa's. As geologist, am already a field tourist. You can partner with me to give/capture you with field reports of great tourist sites and beautiful images of Nigerian cities. I wish you the best of luck with your idea and i have also voted it. I gave you vote number 3. Cheers!!
