At the time of the last GSAIR there were 8,802 serviced apartments in 102 locations in Africa. Today there are 9,477 in 166 locations, a rise of 7.6% and 62.7% respectively in just 18 months. This shows the rising level of interest in the sector, although supply is still limited across the African continent, with a particular shortage of quality serviced apartment accommodation. Where there is supply, the range of amenities and service available to guests often extends purely to daily cleaning.
However there are hot spots, such as Cairo (Egypt), Marrakesh (Morocco), Accra (Ghana), Dar As Salaam Tanzania), Abuja (Nigeria) and Nairobi (Kenya). Business travellers to Nairobi make up 26% of all arrivals; business travel and
conference delegates accounts for 31% in Accra.
