Demand from the US is expected to continue and the Group remains positive for the second half of the year. However, even though the Group has seen a small number of cancellations and a slight drop off in enquiries, if the Ebola outbreak in West Africa persists it could have an impact on the Group and tourism as a whole. In addition, the potential introduction of the new visa requirements for travellers to South Africa could further impact the results of the Group. The implementation of the new regulations has been delayed until 1 June 2015. Both events are viewed as a short-term challenge and are not expected to have an impact in the medium to long term. The Group is continuing its assessment of various opportunities identified for expansion both within the current geographic footprint and beyond into other regions of Africa.
