In southern Africa, there is growing interest in the potential for establishing tourism routes as vehicles for tourism expansion and the promotion of local economic development.

This case study is distinguished by a shift of local route planning from an exclusive pro-growth focus, to incorporating elements of planning for pro-poor tourism.
