Att’ll do nicely as show boosts African jollies
SIR David Attenborough’s TV series Africa has boosted bookings to the Dark Continent.
Sales to Kenya are soaring as are trips to Tanzania and Egypt’s Red Sea resorts, according to a longhaul travel trend survey by holiday firm Hayes & Jarvis.
Mauritius and Mexico are also doing well but the effect of the UK’s airport departure tax has hit bookings to Barbados, St Lucia and Antigua.
The top 10 most popular long-haul destinations also includes Vietnam, which now outperforms Thailand.
The survey also showed that New York – always popular with Brits – has recovered from a bookings flop last autumn following Superstorm Sandy.
Other destinations where bookings are booming include Brazil, Costa Rica, China and Trinidad’s neighbour island of Tobago.
Hayes & Jarvis said: “The Attenborough effect has driven a TV audience fascinated by wildlife to Africa.”
