10 BUDGET AIRLINES CHANGING AFRICA'S SKIES

Traveling across Africa's huge distances used to be expensive and involved tedious connections through Europe. That's finally changing.

fastjet - Initially plying domestic routes in Tanzania, fastjet started small in 2011, but has since expanded to four other countries. With Ed Winter, a former easyJey executive at the helm, it's looking to break into the lucrative South African domestic market.
Mango - Flying within South Africa and to Zanzibar, Mango loves flash sales and will rebate flyers who join its mailing list.
Kulula - Launched in 2001, Kulula offers what sometimes seems a lighthearted take on flying, with bright green planes and wisecracking flight attendants. But it's serious business. Its operators Comair is partnered with British Airways, Air France and Kenya Airways, and it's spread from South Africa to five other countries.
flyafrica.com - Filling the void left by the shrunken Air Zimbabwe, flyafrica.com offers some seriously tempting deals -- when it launched some flights were as little as ($9). It also runs regular flights from South Africa to Harare, popular with Zimbabwean expats.
FlySafair - One of the newest kids on the block, FlySafair launched in October 2014 in direct competition with Kulula and Mango. Ticket prices have been pared back recently to reflect lower fuel prices.

TANZANIA: POACHING THREATENS TOURISM INDUSTRY GROWTH

Poaching in Tanzania is threatening to undermine the East African nation’s growing tourism economy, one otherwise poised to add hundreds of thousands of jobs in the coming years.

Dr. Adelhelm Meru, permanent secretary of Tanzania’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, warns that poaching could affect as many as 3.8 million tourism-sector jobs across Africa, including guides, drivers, and hotel and restaurant staff.

All Africa reports:

Tanzania, like many African nations, has been hard hit by poaching over the past decade. Last year a survey revealed that the country had lost more than half its elephants, with populations declining from 110,000 in 2009 to fewer than 44,000. Tanzania's iconic giraffes, the country's national symbol, have also suffered, as has much of its other wildlife.
