TANZANIA’S FIRST TOURISM ROAD SHOW IN INDIA IN 10 YEARS

By Shayan Mallick

 

 

Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB), the national tourism organization of Tanzania, is currently visiting India on a three-city road show (Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad) along with a number leading Tanzanian suppliers to showcase the country’s diverse tourism offerings in the Indian market after a gap of ten years. It concluded its Delhi road show today, organized at Delhi Aerocity’s Roseate House hotel.

The delegation is led by TTB Managing Director, Devota K. Mdachi. Tanzania hosted its last tourism road show in India more than 10 years ago, although it has participated in tourism fairs in India in recent years.

The road show is aimed at educating the Indian trade buyers about Tanzania’s tourist attractions, it’s rich wildlife tourism offerings, flora & fauna and its wealth of heritage in order to capture a larger share of the fast growing outbound travel from India. Tanzania was awarded “The Best Safari Country in Africa” for two consecutive years in 2014 and 2015.

“Tanzania offers a complete package of adventure, exploration and relaxation to the tourists. This has significantly increased the number of travelers each year. From seven lakh travelers in 2007, it has crossed 13 lakhs in 2017. We expect this number to reach to over 2 million tourists by 2020” said Mdachi.

Tanzania is endowed with some of Africa’s world class tourism assets that encompass natural, cultural, historical and archaeological sites, which are in high demand by international tourism markets. The state of Tanzania is home to more than 20 per cent of the African continent’s large mammals. The country is home to 16 National Parks, 31 Game Reserves, 44 Game Controlled Areas, 4 Ramsar Sites and 33 Wildlife Management Areas.

Besides, the country boasts of impressive ruins of 14th to 16th century tombs, mosques and palaces and not to forget seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The diverse cultures, traditions and customs can be experienced through traditional dances, handcrafts, rock paintings and archaeological sites.
