THE Tanzania Tourism Board (TTB) believes Tanzania now shines prominently on the tourism world map partly because of the visits of prominent personalities to the country’s tourist attractions.
The TTB Managing Director, Ms Devota Mdachi, told journalists in Dar es Salaam yesterday that world prominent people didn’t want their private visits to Tanzania’s tourist attractions publicised and their requests were granted by the government and the board.
She explained, however, that “Their visits are a glaring evidence that our country is prominently shining on the tourism world map and increasing tourist arrivals is proof to that fact.
Tourists now know that Tanzania is not only safe, but that it has tourist attractions not found elsewhere on this planet.”
