African Tourism Board appeal after Thomas Neckermann and Cook closure
The African Tourism Board knows the Thomas Cook closing in the U.K. We have been aware travelers in Africa that booked through Thomas Cook and affiliated companies including Neckermann among others in Germany may need assistance. Cuthbert Ncube, chairman of ATB released the next statement from the NGO’s headquarters in Pretoria:
We encourage our members and everyone in the African travel and tourism industry to exceed the call of one’s contract and assist those guests looking for help.
The African Tourism Board is attractive to tourism companies, hotels, safari lodges, airlines, and cruiselines to do their finest and help guests that booked and covered any occasion with Thomas Cook and related companies.
Our hope is that everyone who’s currently in Africa can finish their trip and ensure it is the very best experience ever. Because of this, we need the help of everyone, who’s a bunch currently. The African Tourism Board will help at all possible.

Companies going a supplementary step to create Thomas Cook guests feel welcome and appreciated in this uncertain time can pay off in the medium and longterm. Such efforts by African hosts can help our tourism industry and can fulfil our goal to create Africa one big destination.
This appeal would go to every national and local tourism board also, hotel, safari company, DMC, airline, and cruise company conducting business in Africa.”
Cuthbert encourages members to talk about their input, experience and activities when it comes to this example with ATB.
