TANZANIA AMONG TOP 45 PLACES IN THE WORLD IN 2012
Tanzania has been ranked the number one tourist destination on the African continent and seventh globally in the “45 places to go in the year 2012” by the largest metropolitan local daily, the New York Times.
In its Sunday Travel Section published, January 8, 2012, Tanzania was named the first African nation worth visiting, while other two African countries listed were Uganda and Morocco.
According to East African travel specialists, Hippo Creek Safaris and Abercrombie & Kent, for the last several years the number of tourists going to Tanzania has been edging up due to unique and peculiar attractions like Mount Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park which Tanzania is endowed with.
Other attractions are being discovered, too — places like Gibb’s Farm, a small lodge from which guests can hike to the Ngorongoro Crater – a prime destination for big game viewing. In addition, the opening of exclusive safari reserves like the Singita Grumeti and the upscale camps managed by Nomad Tanzania and Chem Chem are evidences that the country’s tourist infrastructure is becoming more sophisticated.
