Abstract: This study examines Africa-related tourism and hospitality literature over the past 35 years (1984 to 2019), taking account of themes, methodologies, geographies, and collaboration structures. The authors identified and analyzed 1,182 published articles from 27 journals using advanced bibliometric to provide a deeper analysis than has been provided previously of tourism and hospitality scholarship in Africa. This article offers an up-to-date systematic overview of Africa-related tourism knowledge production and dissemination. Prominent features of the knowledge domain are discussed—destination management, travel psychology and sociology, sustainability, sociocultural issues, economy, tourism investment and economy, accommodation and hotels in Africa. The authors discussed further research, current and emerging tourism issues, and more diverse approaches toward research focus, methodologies, and geographical structures.
