Travel Precautions for Tourist
Safety and Security of Tourists in Ethiopia
Tourism Safety and security play a vital role in the tourism sector. But many Countries and tourists pay less attention to it because of the high cost of travel. On the other hand, the success or failure of tourism highly depends on the safety and security of tourists because tourists prefer to ensure the safety and security of the tourism destinations and overall country situation. But many Africa countries face a challenge to ensure the safety and security of tourism because of intra-conflict and inter-conflicts, political and economic instabilities, lack of Tourism Security Policies, and poor infrastructures like health and transport services. For instance, Rwanda experienced the biggest decline from the tourism rank level due mainly to worsening health conditions.
According to the report of World Economic Forum, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania are the three Eastern Africa tourist destinations but Kenya, and Tanzania dominated by Ethiopia thought Ethiopia has a notably underdeveloped travel and tour infrastructure. The report shows that Ethiopia was 80th out of 141 Africa Countries in overall global rank when compared based on safety and security of tourists.
