New parks planned to raise Tanzania wildlife tourism
Targeting to attract more tourists from wildlife resources, Tanzania National Parks has earmarked 5 game reserves for upgrading into national parks for photographic Tanzania wildlife tourism.
When gazetted into full national parks, Tanzania will own 21 national parks conserved with wildlife and nature under the trusteeship and management of Tanzania National Parks.
Neighbors with Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, and DR Congo, the new parks will provide a combined destination for tourists visiting wildlife in East Africa to combine their safari itineraries to gorilla and scenery parks of Rwanda, Uganda, and DR Congo.
The National Parks Director General, Mr. Allan Kijazi, said the wildlife reserves set for development are Kibisi, Biharamulo, Burigi, Ibanda, and Rumanyika, part of the Western tourist circuit near the shores of Lake Tanganyika and Lake Victoria, the biggest lakes in Africa.
Establishment of the 5 new parks will bring a total of 60,000 square kilometers of wildlife protected parks under the trusteeship and management of Tanzania National Parks from the current 56,000 square kilometers of the existing established national parks.
