The News

To all our clients

We regret the inconvenience caused by the unfortunate events over the last days at all entry points of the Tanzania National Parks. The events were caused due to a unilateral decision by TANAPA to revise the concession fees and its payment modalities, which were not in accordance with existing written agreements between the various parties.
We as the Tourism Confederation Tanzania (TCT), the Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO) and the Hotels Association of Tanzania (HAT) have made various appeals to the authorities during the past few weeks to prevent this crisis and have now initiated a dialogue with TANAPA (Tanzania National Parks) and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism to resolve the matter. We hope that further inconvenience to our guests can be avoided.
We want to thank everybody for their cooperation, patience and understanding during these very unfortunate events, which we trust will not reoccur. We are committed to the continued development of Tanzania as a quality tourism destination.
