Dar es Salaam — The Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) on Thursday announced measures the public conservation body is undertaking to attract more tourists to the East African nation.

According to a statement from Tanapa issued on Thursday July 30, the new tariffs will take effect from August 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.

These changes, will mainly affect national parks like; Burigi-Chato, Ibanda-Kyerwa, Kigosi, Nyerere, Ugalla River and Rumanyika-Karagwe.

Other areas include tariff reduction for the canopy walkway in Lake Manyara National Park from $60 to $20 for foreigners and from Sh15000 to Sh10,000 for East African Community residents.

Relatedly, for a multiple entry, a day-trip permit will be valid for twelve daylight hours and allows multiple entries within such validity period.

Africa Tembelea understands that a sleep-over multiple entry permit will be valid for twenty-four hours within the period of validity. In this case, a 12-hour permit expires at 6:00 pm on the day a visitor enters irrespective of the time when the permit was issued, while a 24-hours permit will expire after 24 hours from the time a permit issued.

According to Tanapa, these changes are part of the ways through which the Tanzanian government intends to increase tourists, income and improve tourism environment within the national parks.
