Description

The steadily increasing popularity of rural tourism in both developed and developing countries has led to an intriguing debate around its role in sustainable development. In this concise overview, Johan Viljoen begins by defining rural tourism and examining international trends in rural tourism development in both developed and developing contexts. He then examines post-1994 tourism policy development in South Africa and shows how internal changes and the massive increase in international tourists visiting South Africa are shaping the development of niche tourism types. This title is a useful primer for anyone working in tourism and development.
