It would form part of a mixed-use development including a casino, retail outlets, residential housing, and office space, the global hospitality company added.
“With tourist arrivals in Africa expected to increase at a higher rate than the global average, we are on the right track with our Africa expansion strategy,” said Hilton Worldwide Europe and Africa senior vice-president Patrick Fitzgibbon.
