Modelling domestic tourism on demand and supply factors in Uganda based at Directorate of Research and Publication Kabale University

Globally, domestic tourism is the most widely practiced form of tourism, with domestic tourist flows six times higher than international flows (UNWTO 2020; Cooper 2008). In Spain, one of the world’s top tourist destinations, domestic tourism accounts for 90% of the country’s tourism ( Campos &  Cataln 2020). The United Nations World Tourism Organization regularly publishes data on tourists flows globally but Uganda has never appeared on the list of the top domestic tourism destinations. For example, the UNWTO tourism barometer of 2018, listed the top 52 domestic tourism  destination but Uganda was not among. Yet, many Ugandans visit their country but their domestic tourism activities are never captured. The lack of data on Uganda’s domestic tourism has been a persistent challenge leading to the country’s low ranking in tourism performance reports. This has prompted the government to embark on several awareness campaigns such as Tulambule Uganda campaign launched on September 23, 2016, followed by the digital tourism campaign in November 2018 and the appointment of key public figures as tourism ambassadors, but the reports on domestic tourism numbers were still small (The Outlook Africa, 2022 This research therefore aims at closing this gap by not only collecting baseline data on the levels of domestic tourism but also develop a model to predict future domestic tourism demand in Uganda. This initial phase will generate information to guide the department to design evidence-based interventions to increase awareness on domestic tourism.
