In 2020, the DWTS worked on the Biodiversity Monitoring Framework (BMF) for the Mudumu National Park (MNP). A team led by Dr. Fabiano Ezequiel developed and implemented a monitoring strategy in the park on behalf of the Ministry of Environment, Forestry, and Tourism (MEFT). The project’s purpose was to develop a comprehensive BMF for MNP, which included field equipment installation and staff training.
"We must rid ourselves of the colonial yokes of borders. Africans are one people and there should be unity. We don’t need these borders that were created to put in place mechanisms to control us. The regional groupings on the continent that have been formed such as the SADC and ECOWAS are precursors for a united Africa. A united Africa will boost interior engagement between countries."
Mauritius is firmly established as a favoured destination for South African travellers, and now the Indian Ocean island is attracting visitors from Kenya and East Africa with daily direct flights from Nairobi.
Intra-African tourism is increasingly attractive for Africa’s emerging middle class and increasingly important for African economies. The type of connectivity created by Kenya Airways flight schedule between Nairobi and Mauritius is a game-changer for the tourism industry. Africa currently only earns 3% of global tourism revenues. Improved connectivity between premium African tourism destinations is a significant step towards growing that figure.
