Carlson Rezidor extends their African network and adds two new countries to their growing portfolio: Uganda and Ghana. The Radisson Blu Hotel, Kampala – Carlson Rezidor's first property in Uganda – will feature 195 keys.

It will be located in Kampala's prime business district and open in Q4 2016. The Radisson Blu Hotel Accra Airport, The Exchange in Ghana will comprise 207 keys and welcome the first guests in 2017. "We are delighted to arrive in Uganda. Tourism is one of the country's fastest developing sectors, and Uganda is also becoming an important market for foreign investment due to its rich oil reserves", said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor, at the African Hotel Investment Forum in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).

"Our arrival in Ghana supports our strategic growth in West Africa – a resource-rich and fast growing region with considerable potential for our core brand Radisson Blu", added Neumann.
