Already as a child most people became aware of the big continent Africa and its image of hosting a real unknown world, far away from the civilization. It promises adventure! Africa weaves its magic around people s lives and there certainly is the wish to experience a part of this treasure once in a life time. Later on people become aware of the possibility to travel to Africa. There are many ways to do so to the most spectacular venues. This is what makes Africa so special: a well presented and prepared world within the unknown beauty of a black continent. But this tourism relies on residents, relies on people who live there and which mostly never have been able to be a tourist and to feel what it means to travel, to be a tourist and to be welcomed as a visitor. And this is what must be taken into consideration - managing tourism to Africa and to South Africa carefully by tourism organisations and operators as well as all other stakeholders involved to that type of contributor for a better living standard of its hosts - the involvement of the citizens at all stages of tourism development - Community Based Tourism.
