UGANDA (eTN) – The government in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, launched yesterday an ambitious 5-year tourism development plan, thought to cost them a cool 5 billion shillings (a little over US$2 million) over the time span. The new outlook aims at developing beach tourism, in comparison to Kenya, largely underdeveloped as yet in spite of having over 1,400 kilometers of shoreline between the border to Kenya and the border to Mozambique. In general, Tanzania plans to make greater use of resources and assets like national monuments, in addition to national parks and game reserves.

Tourism and Natural Resources Minister Ezekiel Maige made the announcement in Dar es Salaam, making it clear that Tanzania is intent to add greater resort capacity along the beaches, on the islands off shore, and in safari parks, to attract more tourist visitors in the coming years. The minister also spoke of plans to create regional tourist boards or offices, affiliated to, and to support, the work done by Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB), specifically promoting tourism attractions within their own region and locations.

The minister, in particular, also pointed to the underexploited national monuments and museums where the history of Tanzania is captured, along the coast and also inland, which should be included in the tourist itineraries, telling in particular the stories of the slave trade, which was prevalent along the coast and on Zanzibar with at times remarkable well-preserved sites.
