In the last two years, international travel was battered by the COVID19 pandemic leaving it on it’s knees in 2020. While there was noticeable recovery in 2021 as the world learnt how to deal with the pandemic tourism services providers turned to local markets.
And as the omicron variant rattles the world with COVID19 uncertainty, domestic tourism seems to be the right direction tourism services providers should continue focusing on for survival. With this, domestic tourism is emerging as a more reliable market for tourism.
In Uganda, as the country cautiously reopens her economy, domestic tourism is etching deeper into the plans of services providers who not until the pandemic prioritized international travelers. This is changing with the dwindling and restrictive international travels.
Tourism services providers in Uganda like hotels and resorts are coming up with products and packages that are more affordable to Ugandans. One such hotel is Forest Cottages that has announced post festive season discounts on accommodation.
The hotel, set in a peaceful, African forest feature in Bukoto, a posh suburb in Uganda’s capital Kampala, has announced newly revised special room rates with exciting discounts on accommodation to help travelers and holiday makers save more on accommodation.
