Tanzania’s tourism industry claims the second spot in Africa

After drawing an extraordinary number of tourists, Tanzania has been ranked second in Africa for tourism performance, according to a report seen in The Citizen, a Tanzanian news publication.

According to Dr. Hassan Abbas, Tanzania’s Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, the tourist business was negatively impacted by COVID-19, but fresh investments and the government-produced documentary on the Royal Tour have helped to improve performance.

Since there were more than 400,000 visitors between January and March of this year compared to 250,000 in the first quarter of 2022, the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has ranked it second, behind Ethiopia.
