Tourism in Tanzania is an essential part of the national economy. It has the potential to bring significant revenues to local people, and it accounts for over 10% of the nation’s GDP. Commonly, however, safaris and packages are performed by tour agents located in western countries, meaning only a part of the money comes to Tanzania and supports the local economy. Typically, villages around famous National Parks are the poorest of the poor. Art in Tanzania looks to set itself apart from the crowd regarding safari and tour business by offering sustainable travel options; profit from our tours comes to Tanzania and is used to support the Tanzanian economy and community development activities. As an intern in sustainable tourism, you will help develop the tour programs and guiding, customer service, and marketing our tours and safaris. In addition, your marketing efforts will give visibility to the sustainable status of our tours and safaris. Our marketing is mainly social media-based, but we also develop networking to reach our target groups worldwide to get more visibility.
Art in Tanzania tour operations takes clients to the national parks and game reserves such as Serengeti, N’gorongoro, Lake Manyara, Selous, Mikumi, and Ruaha. We also take tourists to Mt Kilimanjaro and the Zanzibar Islands. In addition, we have developed several one-day trips such as bird watching, sports, music, Zanzibar activities, and Coral Islands trips.
