Looks to me, that they might even be amongst the countries least likely to benefit from tourist cash, because they are places not much travelled.
On the 10 on the list, have been to Mozambique...and I'm currently writing this from Congo DRC, rank 1st on the list...trust me, not many tourists around....but writing this from a lovely place...
I've not been to any of these but thedribbleman
has been to DR Congo, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Burkina Faso - which makes four.
It also appears that Sasha
has possibly been to even more, but he has not blogged from every one - he really travelled to some fascinating destinations. These include DR Congo, Guinea, Central African Republic and Niger. But wouldn't be surprised if he visited a few more on the list (such as Burkina Faso, Liberia or Sierra Leone).
Been to Chad and that is it.
We've been to three of them, Chad, Burkino Faso and Mozambique (albeit briefly).
spent about a month in Mozambique back in 1996 - no buses, had to hitch around on the top of UN grain lorries. Still just emerging from civil war - but the beauty of the coast line and the welcoming nature of the people was very humbling. I am sure it has changed dramatically now - what with South Africa on the doorstep - but hopefully it has retained it's natural beauty and will continue to be a great destination for all types of traveller.
