Tanzania: Hotel Branches Out to Tour Services

Mara — GOLDLAND Hotel and Tours Ltd has introduced tour services for tourists visiting the country's tourist attractions, including Serengeti National Park.

"After successfully operating Goldland Hotel for several years we have now seen that there is a need to introduce tour services in the this area and we are fully prepared to take visitors to SENAPA, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara , Tarangire and many other tourist attractions found in our beautiful country, " the company's managing director, Simon Mseti, told the Daily News.

Goldland Hotel is the leading hotel in the area and accommodates both foreign and local visitors. It is located in Tarime town about 18 km away from the Kenya/ Tanzania Sirari border. "We are now expanding our business and we are assuring our clients of high quality hospitality and tour services," Msetisaid.

Joshua Romeo, who is in charge of the company's tourism department, said they will be also organizing trips for visitors interested in seeing Butiama Museum, located in the Father of the Nation's village of birth, and Lake Victoria beaches.

Lack of tour operating companies has been impeded the development of the tourism sector in the Lake Zone region. The company further plans to move into cultural tourism, a move that will witness some Kuria traditional dance groups like Nyakitari entertain both foreign and local tourists visiting the area, according to Romeo.

"We are also enjoying good cooperation from highly experienced tour operating companies based in the Northern circuit," he added. Hundreds of tourists entering the country via the Tanzania/Kenya Sirari border are now making frequent stops at Goodland Hotel before heading to Serengeti to view a variety of beautiful fauna and flora.
