TZ tourism earns extra international mileage

THE Royal Tour documentary has continued to yield results as 24 foreign journalists are scheduled to tour the country’s national parks, which have not been well marketed so that they can be known internationally.

The Event Coordinator from Awoke International Sports Tourism and Expo Coordinator Buchebuche Enosy said the arrival of the journalists will continue to open up the country.

He said the journalists are expected to write on the beauty of Tanzania and all tourist attractions which they will get an opportunity to visit, thus attracting more visitors.

Mr Enosy said that the Royal Tour documentary has helped to revive the tourism sector after the effects of Covid-19, noting that they are currently receiving many tourists than ever.

He told journalists in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday that some of the countries from which the journalists will come include US, Canada, India, Turkey, Israel and Ghana.

Mr Enosy said the visit by the journalists will enable them to see and write on the beauty of the country in their respective media.

“We have seen various efforts being undertaken by our President Samia Suluhu Hassan to open up the tourism sector … the Royal Tour film has revived the sector and we are now receiving many tourists than ever,” he said.

He noted that, the journalists are expected to arrive in the country in early May this year.

Mr Enosy said that the journalists will visit various regions including   Coast, Tanga, Morogoro, Iringa, Njombe, Lindi, Mbeya, Rukwa, Kigoma, Kagera, Geita, Mara, Pemba and Zanzibar.

On his part, the Programme Chairman Ernest Mwakasenga said that the visit by the international journalists will go together with the launching of the Awoke programnme, which aimed at bringing together tourism and sport leaders in the country to forge unity in tourism related issues.

He said the launch of the programme will be held on March 27, this year in Dar es Salaam and is expected to be attended by 300 people.

Mr Mwakasenga said that the programme is beneficial because it will increase the number of tourists in the country, hence boosting revenue collection.
