Tourism is one of the main foci for economic revitalisation globally and especially, in developing countries (Awodele and Ayeni, 2011). In Africa, tourism has been seen as a means of growth and development (Kester, 2003) as well as launching the image of the continent to the outside world (Eja et al., 2012). Within the world tourism industry, ecotourism is the fastest growing sector (Weaver, 2005). It may be viewed as an intervention in the tourism industry (Manu and Kuuder, 2012). Ecotourism typically involves travels to destinations where flora, fauna and cultural heritage are the primary attractions (Oladeji et al., 2012). Developing countries have accepted the important roles ecotourism plays in alleviating poverty and as a meaningful economic activity that contributes to gross domestic products (GDP) and foreign currency earnings critical for balance of payments (Okech, 2011). It therefore implies tourism practices that benefits all concerned parties (all stakeholders) rather than benefiting some and neglecting others (Oladeji and Kayode, 2013).
