EBOLA THREAT UNFOUNDED IN TANZANIA – TOURISTS ASSURED

Tourists and visitors to Tanzania have been assured that the ongoing Ebola crisis should not affect their choice of East Africa's most beautiful, natural destination.

Speaking exclusively to this blogger in London yesterday, Director of
UK Based Safari Hub, Mr. Navraj Hans, said although the number of tourists flying to the continent has dwindled by 50 percent in the last six months, Tanzania remains unaffected.


Asked to elaborate Mr.  Hans, who’s Safari Hub, has offices in Africa, Asia and Europe, explained that bookings to Tanzania continue to flourish and they include high profile clientele. One of them is Kili Villa who contacted Safari Hub with intention to attract visitors to experience one the best golf courses in Africa at Maji ya Chai, Arusha.
“Because of the beauty of nature and the hospitable character of Tanzania, Kili Villa are keen to develop golf in the country and have asked us to help in bringing more visitors.”



 Confirming the project which has already began, Kili Villa chief, Willem Kurpers ( pictured above), said an area totaling 7,000 acres has already been constructed with scenic views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Meru in the background. “We have already invited the golf champion Tiger Woods to come visit Maji ya Chai. You can see the world wide potential for Tanzania,” Mr. Kurpers who is from Holland added, proudly.
Tanzania’s golf course at Maji ya Chai says Kili Villas has been listed among top ten in Africa and is expected to have 18 holes after total construction.


 Golf course features:
1 = teeing ground
2 = water hazard
3 = rough
4 = out of bounds
5 = bunker
6 = water hazard
7 = fairway
8 = putting green
9 = pin

10 = hole.

Meanwhile, Safari Hub Director, Mr. Hans, whose is also national car racing champion, insisted that so far Tanzania remains one of the best natural places for tourism on the continent but what needs to be done is promotion. “We should look and learn from the Malaysia and Indonesia model. They use TV adverts and positive publicity in overseas countries.”
Safari Hub is expected to open offices in New York and Shanghai in efforts to put Tanzania’s beauty on the global map.
Earlier this year Safari Hub collaborated with UK’s Eton College and the Tanzanian High Commission to send three skilled football students and their highly experienced coach, Mr. Glen Pierce to help develop skills of Tanzanian children. Backing the project locally were ACE Africa which supports community projects and Arusha based Future Stars Academy which uses sports to develop children mentally and physically.

Speaking at the London High Commission in a short reception, Safari Hub co-Director, Mr. Dilip Navapurkar (pictured above) highlighted the need to “see Tanzania’s National team doing better in the Africa Cup of Nations and the world Cup and also to emulate the success in other African countries (Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Ivory Coast, etc).”
