Tanzania is a country rich in culture and traditions;  a blend of African, Arabian, Indian and European influences. Tanzanians are very generous and hospitable yet conservative. They are very welcoming but want people to treat their culture with respect. With 128 tribes, Tanzania is among few countries where religious harmony is prevalent;  people of different  religions live in harmony. The main religions are Christianity and Islam, minority religions are Buddhism,  Hinduism and traditional religions.  The islands of Zanzibar and Pemba are predominantly Muslims ( 98 percent ).
Ecotourism refers to ecologically sensitive travel that combines the discovering and understanding flora and fauna with opportunities to contribute to their protection. Integral to ecotourism is sensitivity to traditional cultures of the people around
According to the World Tourism Organization, sustainable tourism should lead to the "management of all resources in such a way that economic, social and aesthetic needs can be fulfilled while maintaining cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, biological diversity and life support systems".
Here in Tanzania Cultural Tourism started as a program to help rural communities enjoy the benefit of tourism sector in which they are a part of.
The main goal is that rural communities should directly benefit from tourists who visit their areas.  Cultural tourism allows local people  to offer  tours that show their culture,  their sacred places of worship and economic activities
The income generated is used by local people for specific development programs , such as, the building of dispensaries, schools and cattle dip sites.
On the other hand eco-tours in Tanzania offers opportunities to get back to nature or hike into the rainforest, or explore the wilderness on foot or by boat, or travel to an exotic location as Gombe and Mahale National Parks.  it provides many options, and is often very affordable.  By using socially and environmentally responsible tour operator as Utalii Travel & Safaris, can ensure that your trip contributes to conservation efforts and to the well being of communities
