The tourism industry in Tanzania has experienced an extraordinary growth over the years. The success of our tourism industry is hardly surprising. Few destinations worldwide can compete with what Tanzania has to offer. But tourism is a very competitive industry: destinations rise and decline. The tourism hot spots of the 1950s were entirely forgotten by the 1960s. The top destinations of the late 1970s had fallen into oblivion by the end of the 1990s.
