New luxury route to Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro caters for VIP tourists

Tanzania is a tourism haven in East Africa and boasts of some of the world’s most idyllic places, beautiful scenery and abundance of wildlife.
Across the width and breadth of Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is a scenery whose fame has travelled across the world and back. With it, is a ton of visitors every year who wish to soak in the fame and glory of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Cognizant of its fame, the Tanzanian government has okayed a plan to construct a 25 km VIP stretch headed up the mountain.
Interestingly though, this road is not for all and sundry; it is for the chosen few with well-oiled pockets and who privacy is a hallmark in their lives. In the past, the who is who in the world have at one point visited Tanzania, not for business or political purposes but leisure and always wanted their visit to stay a close affair to them only.
It is against this backdrop that the John Magufuli-led administration has embarked on the construction of the multi-million shilling stretch to fully cushion the deep pockets from exposure as they move their way to the prestigious Mount Kilimanjaro.
The TZ Sh200 million project – which will also have another route cut for the regular citizens and tourists – is just a tit-bit of what the government has in store in a bid to shore up tourism which is a major forex earner for Tanzania.
Once complete, the new route will bring to four the number of official routes – including VIP ones – to get to the mountain. One is in Moshi, Arusha and the new path will start at Kidia, a sleepy town a short distance from Moshi.
The ripple effect according to the country’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism is that more jobs will be created and small-scale businesses will thrive since the need to provide necessities for tourists will go up.
This new development comes as Tanzania opens its economy following COVID-19 pandemic which ground most business operations, including tourism-related ventures such as hotels to a halt. International travel has since resumed.
