Destination Branding & National Competitiveness: Lessons from an African Journey

A Chicago based colleague & I visited Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana some weeks ago. It was his first time in Sub-Saharan Africa.

While in Kenya, we had the option of flying directly from Nairobi to Kakamega but instead we chose to fly to Kisumu, on the Kenya-Uganda border and take a 2-3 hour cab ride to Kakamega. Since we planned to leave Kakamega that same day, it meant we would spend the night in Kisumu.

Why Mobile is Such a Big Deal

That Africans love accessing the web via their mobile devices is not in doubt. The reasons have been well articulated to include lower cost of using data and easier access to mobile devices than conventional laptops and desktop computers.

In the June 2012 report of the Opera State of the Mobile Web, mobile social networking platform Eskimi.com was ranked as a top 10 most website when a mobile browser is used in at least 8 African countries.  These include Namibia, Nigeria (2nd most visited); Tanzania (3rd most visited); Zambia (4th most visited); Kenya, Mozambique, Zimbabwe (6th most visited) and Malawi (7th most visited). Pretty impressive for a service that is just a few years old.

I was particularly interested in a September 2013 Eskimi.com report titled “the Generation of Bargain Hunters”.

The Stanley Nairobi…Home Away From Home

I first stayed at the Sarova Stanley in July 2012 on the recommendation of a friend based in Nairobi. The stay was as pleasant as could be expected of a 5 star hotel. My second visit earlier this year was almost marred by an incident in which I felt that an employee had disrespected me. At the same time, I was experiencing suboptimal internet connectivity in my room.
