The continent continued to attract new regional and global investment, whilst economic and political events, currency shifts and fluctuating tourism demand brought both risks and rewards to hotel markets across the region.

Positive growth forecast for East African hospitality sector.

Buoyed by impressive prospects in some parts of Africa, where demand outstrips supply of quality stock, JSE-listed Pivotal Property Fund is pushing ahead with its expansion into the hinterland.

City Lodge Hotels expects demand for its rooms to continue exceeding expectations in the year ahead after it increased occupancies in 2015.
