Your Journey to the Lands of Beauty
Kiota is a dot on the map of a country unique in its beauty. Tanzania’s multi-ethnic history with its rich natural resources and breath-taking fauna and flora remains a dream worthwhile living for.
The father of the nation, Julius Kambarage Nyerere, served as the first President of Tanzania and previously Tanganyika from the country's founding in 1961 until his retirement in 1985. Behind, he left a sensed Wildlife Conservation manifesto.
"The survival of our wildlife is a matter of grave concern to all of us in Africa. These wild creatures amid the wild places they inhabit are not only important as a source of wonder and inspiration but are an integral part of our natural resources and our future livelihood and well being. In accepting the trusteeship of our wildlife we solemnly declare that we will do everything in our power to make sure that our children's grandchildren will be able to enjoy this rich and precious inheritance."
National Parks and Reserves
Nyerere's philosophy to protect and cherish Tanzania's spectacular wildlife as a prime national heritage is expressed in the high priority the Tanzanian government has given to the conservation of natural resources. At independence, Tanzania had only one national Park, the Serengeti. Since then 12 more Parks were created and nearly a quarter of the country is under some form of protection.
