Concrete steps are being implemented to improve land and air routes in the Southern Safari Circuit as tour operators collaborate to scoop new tourism revenue streams. Key tourism players are currently scouting for partners to heavily invest in accommodation projects to lure more travelers into the Southern travel destinations.
With the government’s strategy to bring 2,000,000 tourists in Tanzania by 2020, Iringa has recently been designated as the Southern Circuit hub, as a chapter in the southern region to cater for the entire Southern circuit.
The Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO) has recently deployed a delegation led by its Vice-Chairman, Mr Henry Kimambo to identify new potential members. “We want to replicate the best practices from the Northern Tourism Circuit to Southern shred,” Mr Kimambo told the tour operators in Iringa during the engagement meeting.
