Tanzania tourism to reap nothing from World Cup, others to gain

24/08/2009 14:33

Failure by Tanzanian government authorities to design and strategize plans that would put this African tourist destination in Southern African World Cup tournament map had automatically created doubts whether this nation will benefit from Africa’s first and historic soccer event.


Tourist stakeholders in Tanzanian Indian Ocean coastal city of Dar es Salaam and the northern tourist hub of Arusha have been frustrated by the government’s failure to join other regional members in promoting the country during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.


Up to this day, no stringent plans and serious campaigns have been made by the Tanzanian government to attract soccer fans, teams and tourists coming for the World Cup in South Africa to skip north and visit Tanzania.


It is only three hours flight from Johannesburg in South Africa to Dar es Salaam or four hours flight from other South African cities to key tourist sites in Tanzania.


Despite South African tourist companies holding best lodges in Tanzania, authorities here have done nothing or little to campaign for the country’s tourism collaboratively with South African firms, like the giant South African Breweries Limited (SAB).
