Sinai Tourism Suffers from High Fees and Security Needs, says Tourism Head
Safari trips in the mountains and deserts of Sinai are considered a unique tourism product that sets apart the region from other competing areas. However, the restive region suffers from the complexity of heightened security measures and exaggerated fees, according to Abanoub Travel Chairman Rabie Tawfik.
“Over the past four years, safari tourism has been highly affected due to a decline in tourist arrivals and stalled activity,’’ Tawfik said in an interview with Daily News Egypt.
Tawfik requested that all state agencies help tourism companies revive their activities by removing all obstacles and restrictions imposed.
