THE Tanzania Tourism Board (TTB) believes Tanzania now shines prominently on the tourism world map partly because of the visits of prominent personalities to the country’s tourist attractions.
The TTB Managing Director, Ms Devota Mdachi, told journalists in Dar es Salaam yesterday that world prominent people didn’t want their private visits to Tanzania’s tourist attractions publicised and their requests were granted by the government and the board.

Tourists now know that Tanzania is not only safe, but that it has tourist attractions not found elsewhere on this planet.”
