Angola bets on avitourism to attract tourists and revenue

The Ministry of Tourism of Angola, in line with guidelines from the WTO (World Tourism Organization), has as a goal for the year 2020 – 2021 a bet on Rural Tourism, involving this and other projects for the development and fight against poverty.

 Within the scope of the project “Betting on Aviturismo”  the Ministry of Tourism of Angola, in partnership with a company PROMISED LAND VENTURES (PLV), launched this Monday, in Tundavala, Huíla province, training group in Tourist Guides.

The location of Tundavala was chosen because it is a tourist spot of great potential, not only that it exhibits bird watching, but also that it refers to the majestic landscape that attracts and surrounds visitors with its strong exuberance.

The expectation of Angola Tourism is that, with no final training action, the trainees are qualified and equipped with technical skills on hospitality, reception, interaction and orientation of tourists, as well as addressing ecological issues and ecosystem conservation.

It is a project composed of several stages and the formation of local guides along the tourist route, used by the Ministry, using one of the key stages for the success of the project, preparing the guides for those who are able to guide interested tourists, national or foreign. By the time of the “Betting on Aviturism” project, there are already a total of 15 young people, in the provinces of Malanje and Bengo, deep on the communities, places where there is a record of the presence of endemic birds with great potential as rare birds.
