Cultural tourism has become a fundamental part of the tourism industry in Tanzania spearing an increase in tourist arrivals into the country, thus empowering rural communities to reap the fruits of globalization and the ever growing tourism industry.
This type of tourism allows visitors to experience authentic, indigenous cultures by combining nature, scenery, folklore, rituals, art & crafts, ceremonies, dances and local hospitality of Tanzania to give a unique perspective into the daily lives of the local people, simultaneously allowing them to experience the wildlife safari in Tanzania and Zanzibar holidays has to offer.
A country and its peoples.
In fact ,Tanzania itself is a veritable mosaic of ethnic and historical diversity. For thousands of years the vast interior saw the endless movement of nomadic tribes migrating from north to south with changing seasons. Over on the coast, the cities and islands made up the wealthy trading centers of the Indian Ocean. A powerful Islamic civilization rose and fell, leaving behind it the kiswahili language. After the first explorers and missionaries – Dr David Livingstone, Richard Burton, Johann Ludwing Krapf – came German colonization in 19th century, followed by the British protectorate of the Tanganyika after the ward war one. Independence was achieved in 1961 and Zanzibar joined the mainland in 1964 to form the United Republic of Tanzania.
