Tanzania is blessed with a multitude of world class tourist attractions. In 2017 we welcomed 1.3 million tourists to our country (an annual growth of 5%) and inbound international tourism receipts contributed over USD$2.3 billion to the Tanzanian economy.
Through the continued development of tourism Tanzania will prosper, and our organisation is here to play a key role in making this happen: To advocate for the rightful positioning of women in tourism development; To provide access to first class tourism education and expand work opportunities for our schoolchildren, students and rural communities; To promote and support sustainable tourism and associated climate change initiatives; To lead in the development of innovative and quality tourist services; To develop strong networks in Tanzania and across Africa to help achieve the social and economic goals of the tourism industry and our Country.
We are driven by the popular saying “Nani kama Mama”, which means that the children of Tanzania look to the next generation of women to lay the ground that will lead to their prosperity. We are proud to embrace this tradition and take on this responsibility within our tourism industry today.
