Angola Attacks Have Little Impact on SA Tourism

Despite the recent attack on the Togo national team when they were in Angola for the Africa Cup of Nations, South African organizers are calming nerves as the country prepares to play international host during the World Cup. Tour operators say that the violence has not affected interest in visiting the country.

International tour operators confirmed however that there is still huge interest in the World Cup.

Juan Carlos, the co-owner of Fifa-accredited Pegazus Sport Tours in Spain, said while there had been some concern after the Angola attack, confidence remained high.
