    Tanzania invites South Africa businesses to invest in tourism
    By Beatrice Philemon
    23rd September 2010

    The Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Shamsa Mwangunga, has called on South African companies and individuals to invest in the Tanzania tourism industry to help the latter country provide better services for tourists.

    She made the remarks at a recent presentation on Tanzania tourism to South African outbound travelers in a meeting held at Moyo Zoo Lake Restaurant in Parkview, Johannesburg, South Africa.
    Event papers indicate the presentation was tailored to provide proper information on what Tanzania has to offer in the tourism sector. The event was organized by Wild Frontiers.

    The minister was accompanied by Amant Macha, Director of Marketing at the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB). Minister Mwangunga has told The Guardian the major goal of the event was to promote the tourist attractions in Tanzania to South African travelers.

    In her presentation, the minister assured South Africans eager to invest in the country, the Ministry in collaboration with the Tanzania Investment Centre will assist them in making their choices practical.
    Currently, South Africa is number seven on the top ten tourist market list for Tanzania. The achievement has been possible due to the high commitment among South African tour operators, travel agents and airlines serving Tanzania from that country, the minister said.

    “Due to this achievement, we Tanzanians express thanks to South African Airways, Itime Airline, Kenya Airways, British Airways/Comair and Ethiopian Airline for their contribution in bringing more tourists from South Africa and other parts of the world to Tanzania,” the minister said.

    “We also express gratitude to the management of South African Airways for having increased their airline’s flight to Tanzania during the FIFA 2010 World Cup.”

    The minister reminded the participants that Tanzania has seven Unesco World Heritage Sites, which include Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge, Mount Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, Zanzibar Stone Town, Kilwa Ruins, and the Kondoa-Kolo Rock Art Paintings. “These are some of the sites that tourists can visit,” she said.

    John Addison, Director of Wild Frontiers said over 190 travel trade professionals, member of the public, media people and corporate executives attended the event.
