Abstract:This is a theme issue of Urban Forum on the topic of urban tourism in Africa. The issue offers a set of new and original contributions on urban tourism in Africa. Among the issues under scrutiny in this collection are inter alia, the application of new technologies by tourism enterprises, the environmental impacts of tourism accommodation, revisiting township tourism, new inner-city frontiers in slum tourism, volunteer tourism in cities, authenticity in heritage tourism attractions and neighborhood change linked to urban tourism consumption. In addition, the new challenges posed for urban tourism research by scholarship in evolutionary economic geography are profiled. Taken together, the articles in this theme issue raise new agendas for contemporary urban tourism research in Africa and for furthering a distinctive urban tourism scholarship of the global South. Contributions: A decade of progress in African urban tourism scholarship (Christian M. Rogerson, Gustav Visser); Urban tourism and evolutionary economic geography: complexity and co-evolution in contested spaces (Patrick Brouder, Dimitri Ioannides); Slum tourism and urban regeneration: touring inner Johannesburg (Fabian Frenzel); Township tourism demand: tourists' perceptions of safety and security (Richard George, Irma Booyens); Urban tourism and the de-gaying of Cape Town's De Waterkant (Gustav Visser); Urban volunteer tourism: orphanages in Johannesburg (Jayne M. Rogerson, David Slater); The perceived authenticity of iconic heritage sites in urban tourism: the case of Constitutional Hill, Johannesburg, South Africa (Milena Ivanovic); Second home owner perceptions of their environmental impacts: the case of Hartbeespoort (Dianne Long, Gijsbert Hoogendoorn); The diffusion and impacts of information and communication technology on tourism in the western Cape, South Africa (Mohammad Amir Anwar, Pádraig Carmody, Björn Surborg, Adrian Corcoran).
