TANAPA improves Tanzanian Guides

21st January 2011

TANAPA (Tanzania National Parks Association) is ready to give financial and technical resources to build capacity for the guides in order to attract more visitors to the country, especially to the National Parks, after a three-day meeting organised by the management of the Serengeti National Parks with the Tanzania Tour Guides Association (TTGA), a body which is increasingly gaining importance in the industry.

The aim is to maintain local knowledge and local guides over the influx of foreign guides in Tanzania. Martin Laibooki, Serengeti chief park warden also said cultural attractions would be promoted for tourism within the vast park. These include the historical sites which have been sighted in recent years.

Tour guides at the meeting suggested improving the infrastucture of the Serengeti, so that northern and northwestern parts may be opened up to allow access to “undiscovered” impressive areas that are currently not easily visited due to bad roads.For detailed information about Tanzania and Zanzibar please look at our site – www.tanzaniaodyssey.com, and click here for information about a Tanzania safari.
