July 2013: increase the entrance fee to the parks

Recently the "Tanzania National Parks" (TANAPA) has announced that from 1 July 2013 there will be an increase in the entrance fee to national parks.

TANAPA has explained the reasons that led to this choice. In particular, the need to improve tourist facilities and infrastructure (roads, bridges and airstrips), trying to increase the number of visitors, and the diversification of tourism, so as to live an unforgettable experience to tourists, are the two predominant aspects that have led to this increase.

Currently TANAPA is managing a total of 15 national parks, including the famous Serengeti and Mount Kilimanjaro.

I did a safari in Tanzania earlier this year.
First thing off, you have to pick a small area. Its not that realistic to do Tanzania AND Kenya, the area is huge and you would waste an incredible amount of time going from place to place just to see similar things. We did the Tanzania Northern Circuit - Arusha (just a place to sleep), Lake Manyara, Serengetti and Ngorogoro. Our safari was abo...boards for advice. You really want to be with a company that has sturdy land rover vehicles, NOT minvans - there's a big difference. Like I said, we used Roy's and were very happy, but I know there are other good companies too.
Feel free to email me if you have other qs or if you want a link to my online photo album from our trip. Its a really amazing experience, you're going to love it!!!

  • Avatar Harman Why is Kenya so popular to tourist?

    I mean it's not a HEDC but it has on average 500,000 tourists per year (which is pretty good seeing that is a less developed country...), how come?

    • There are so many tourist attractions in Kenya that you could spend a whole year there and still miss lots of great sights.
      Kenya is probably most famous for its incredible wildlife experiences through safaris, national parks and game reserves. But there are also sunny beaches, deserts an …is and water sports.

      Lamu Beach on the island of Lamu is an exotic beach locale with distinctive architecture and an Islamic culture to enjoy. No vehicles are on the island of Lamu and it is a popular destination for honeymooning couples.

  • Avatar Kelsey S I am visiting Africa this summer which country is the safest: kenya,south africa, ghana, uganda,or tanzinia?

    • I've been to Kenya, Ghana, South Africa and Tanzania so I'll just answer form my experiences. In Kenya everyone warned us how dangerous Nairobi is so you really want to be careful there; however, safari trips are AMAZING! Ghana is very safe, lived there for 5 years and nothing ever happened... (just don't go walking around in the middle of the night talking on your phone or anything like that) South Africa kind of dangerous if you go to the big cities, Tanzania comes close to Kenya. Don't know about Uganda.
