Tanzania Shows Off Its Assets
Tanzania's official Tourist Board gives a condensed glimpse of the country's history, climate, culture, religion, and nature. A drop-down menu links site visitors to logistical travel information. Once travelers have arrived, they will discover the nation that harbors Mt. Kilimanjaro also has safaris, snorkeling, diving, and fishing, the site says.
Long considered the most politically stable and affluent of East African countries, President Jakaya Kikwete is committed to promoting Tanzania as a travel destination. Monday, he announced a 2008 summit titled "Tourism and Infrastructure Development." He hopes about 4,000 people will attend from neighboring countries as well as wealthy North Americans of African descent. The conference is a joint effort of former U.N. members and government officials.
