    A local investor is planning to set up a luxurious fivestar hotel at Ryamakabe Island near Kinesi village in Rorya district, Mara region, an official has revealed.


    "The investor has already started installing infrastructure on the island and it will be a five-star hotel that will comprise presidential suites, among other things," Rorya District Council Acting Executive Director, Mr Sebastian Masanja, revealed this while speaking to the ‘Daily News' at Ingiri Juu Village, Rorya district headquarters.

    e did not disclose the name of the investor but hinted that he is a business person from the commercial city of Dar es Salaam. The investor will be using wind power and installation of infrastructure on the site is underway, Mr Masanja further hinted. The district council has given the investor a go ahead to build the hotel in the area that has gone with a single tourist hotel for years.


    Construction of the planned hotel will make the total number of tourist hotels in the area to two, despite the larger part of the district being made up of Lake Victoria, the world's second largest water body. The district is also blessed with other tourist attractions like beautiful hills and water falls along Mara River that are yet to be developed and marketed by relevant authorities, including the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB), which is always blamed for allegedly doing nothing to promote tourism in the region.


    Mara is also the home to the world heritage of Serengeti National Park which attracts thousands of tourists from different parts of the world every year. The park receives an average of 350,000 and 400,000 visitors annually, according to its chief park warden, Mr Mtango Mtahiko.


    Lack of sufficient tourist hotels and tour operating companies is another stumbling block hampering the development of tourism and travel sectors in the lake zone region where the Father of the Nation, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, was born and brought up.
