Tanzania National Parks Initiative Gives Locals Greater Role in Tourism

tanzania-tourist-300x150

The Tanzania National Parks Authority (TANAPA) recently set aside 34 areas for locals to invest in the tourism industry – a further step to promote the sector, which is one of the country’s leading revenue earners.

The idea is that within the identified areas local investors can establish facilities, like accommodation, for tourists. TANAPA Director Allan Kijazi, speaking to reporters, said recently:

“The aim is to improve services and motivate local tourists alongside those from outside the country to visit the attractions.”

According to him priority areas, with their respective regions in brackets, are Katavi, Kitulo (Mbeya), (Katavi), Mikumi (Morogoro), Mkomazi (Tanga), Ruaha (Iringa), Rubondo (Kigoma), Saadani (Coast and Tarangire (Manyara) – pointing out that they are rarely visited by tourists, compared to long established ones, largely because of lack of proper accommodation. And this is despite their big tourism potential.
