The future of Tourism in Tanzania

Let’s reimagine the future of tourism in tanzania.

Tanzania’s tourism sector is seeing a rebound after the Covid-19 pandemic—and the aspirations for its continued growth are high: by 2025, the country hopes to reach $6 billion in tourism revenue, which assumes the influx of five million tourists annually. To achieve such lofty goals will require some important upgrades and improvements to tourism infrastructure and services. I outline a few of them in this article.

Before the pandemic, tourism was the largest foreign exchange earner, the second largest contributor to the gross domestic product (GDP) and the third largest contributor to employment. After taking a severe hit during Covid, tourists are starting to return to Tanzania, with 742,133 visitors between January and July 2022, a 62.7% increase over the previous year (Exhibit 1).

Exhibit 1: Tourism is returning after the Covid-19 pandemic

But whilst we are doing well, many bottlenecks persist. These include limited access to cheap financing, inadequate tourism infrastructure, a multiplicity of levies, insufficient diversity in products offerings, and lack of sufficient hotel and airport facilities.  So how can we measure how we are doing?

Well, the World Economic Forum (“WEF”) in its Travel & Tourism Development Index 2021 (published in May 2022, and themed “Rebuilding for a Sustainable and Resilient Future”) is one barometer of where we stand.  It ranks Tanzania as 5 th of the sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries (and 81 st globally out of 117 countries, up from 86 th in 2019). 1 st to 4 th places within SSA are taken by Mauritius (62 nd ), South Africa (68 th ), Botswana (76 th ) and Kenya (78 th ), with 6 th to 10 th places taken by Cape Verde (82 nd ), Namibia (88 th ), Rwanda (89 th ), Zambia (98 th ) and Ghana (101 st ).

According to the WEF report Tanzania and South Africa are very clear leaders within SSA in terms of ranking of natural resources.  One aspect to consider further as a significant opportunity is the “non-leisure resources” pillar, which measures the extent and attractiveness of factors that drive business and other non-leisure travel; although Tanzania’s ranking is broadly in line with the SSA average, it does lag Kenya and South Africa by quite a bit.  More generally, the WEF report does highlight that East Africa as a region does not rank as highly as Southern Africa in terms of price competitiveness.  

Exhibit 2: Tanzania can do more to boost its tourism competitiveness

Tourists coming to Tanzania frequently speak of seeing “the Big Five”.  Stakeholders in the tourism sector would also say that they have their “Big Five” namely the “Five A’s”:  Attractions, Access, Accommodation, Amenities, and Affordability!  From my perspective, and aligned with this, I would highlight some priority areas that need to be addressed by the government and other stakeholders in the tourism sector.

Reduce multiplicity in levies and taxes . There is a need for a fresh look at tourism taxes and levies so as to reduce multiplicity and create competitiveness across the region – indeed, this point was highlighted as an urgent priority in a report recently presented at the 13 th meeting of the Tanzania National Business Council. Currently, Tanzania is deemed an expensive destination compared to other destinations such as South Africa and Kenya. Notwithstanding the positive efforts which led to reduction of some of the levies such as the Tourism Agency License (TALA) fee, there is still scope for rationalization of fees that are charged by multiple government agencies. Further, stakeholders’ engagement prior to fee changes will smoothen the operations of the tourism firms and attract more investments in the sector.

Affordable financing .  Tourism firms across the sector, as well as those in downstream value chains, need access to affordable finance particularly in this post Covid-19 era, when the risk appetite for financial institutions in the tourism market is very low. Support from International Development Agencies (IDAs) on the tourism sector should be sought for development projects that have a direct economic impact on the sector and the country as whole.

Improved infrastructure . Tanzania ranks higher than Kenya with respect to safety and security, but lower than Kenya when it comes to tourist service infrastructure. For instance, the drive from Dar es Salaam to Selous Game Reserve, the largest game reserve in Africa is bumpy and long, taking an average of 7 to 8 hours. Flying is a better one option and the fastest way to get to Selous. However, it is the most expensive and hence suits more high-end tourists. Again, IDA support to improve tourist service infrastructure could give a welcome boost.

Upgraded hotels and airport facilities . More effort is required to attract private sector investment in hotels and ensure diversity in service offerings. The current hotel capacity in both Mainland and Zanzibar cannot cater for the expected influx of 5 million tourists by 2025. Improvement in efficiencies and flight handling capacity at the airports is another area which requires fixing. Automation of immigration procedures in Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro Airports will help fast track the process. Instead of having a paperwork checking system, barcodes should be set to scan all the documents. This will help to reduce unnecessary queues at the airports during high season.

Diversified tourism products . Other than wildlife and beaches, the Ministry for Tourism should spearhead the innovation of new tourist attractions. The recent decision to market Ngorongoro-Lengai geo park and the introduction of “Mice” (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) are commendable efforts as these will boost tourism income, since Tanzania is an already established adventure destination.

Introduction of direct flights and collaborations with aviation industry . The signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Tanzanian Government and Dallas in April 2022 was one of the great achievements of the Royal Tour of the United States by her Excellency Samia Suluhu Hassan, as this will attract more American visitors to Tanzania's tourist destinations. More direct flights need to be added to key markets while maintaining a closer collaboration between the aviation and tourism industries for sustainable growth of the sector. This will ease flight interconnectivity to tourists who prefer to do inter-connected travels. 

Raising public awareness . More education is needed for the public and journalists to help promote the tourism sector. Although we are in the era of freedom of speech, care should be taken not to exaggerate unproven facts that are detrimental to the sector’s growth.

In conclusion, the target of $6 billion by 2025 is achievable—but it will require deliberate efforts to make it a reality. The President’s Royal Tour is expected to bring a significant boost to the numbers in 2022 and beyond. The tourism sector needs to be given the utmost priority due to its huge potential in transforming the country’s economy as the sector contributes significantly to foreign exchange and employment.

Tanzania Economic Update December 2022

The Bank of Tanzania (BOT) released its Monthly Economic Review-January 2023 which covers key macroeconomic indicators for the year ending December 2022.

Table of Contents

Global supply chain disruption caused by the war in Ukraine and the after-effects of Covid-19 continued to exert pressure on commodity prices, particularly food and energy.

As a result, domestic inflation sustained an increasing trend since April 2022.

However, headline inflation eased slightly to 4.8% in December 2022 from 4.9% in November 2022 on account of a slowdown in prices of some non-food items.

The rate was, however, higher than 4.2% registered in the corresponding month in 2021 but still within the country target of 5.4% for 2022/23 and in line with regional benchmarks.

Tanzania Inflation and Targets December 2021-2022

Tanzania Inflation and Targets December 2021-2022

Money Supply & Credit

The Bank of Tanzania continued to implement monetary policy that aimed at maintaining a balance between controlling inflation and supporting growth in response to increased inflationary pressures.

The policy resulted in a moderate annual growth of money supply (M3) at 11.6% in December 2022 , which is consistent with the target of 10.3% for 2022/23.

The growth was mostly driven by sustained strong growth of credit to the private sector.

Tanzania Money Supply December 2021-2022

tanzania tourism statistics 2022

Growth of private sector credit remained strong, with an annual rate of 22.5% in December 2022, reflecting the ongoing recovery of economic activities from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, complemented by supportive monetary and fiscal policies.

Tanzania Banks’ Credit to Private Sector December 2021-2022

tanzania tourism statistics 2022

All major economic activities recorded credit growth , except hotels and restaurants.

Credit to agriculture activity registered the highest growth , attributable to the monetary policy measures rolled out by the central bank to provide cost-effective credit intermediation to agriculture and agri-business activities.

In terms of share, the largest portion of outstanding loans was held in personal undertakings, followed by trade, manufacturing, and agriculture activities.

Two Treasury bills auctions were conducted in December 2022, with a combined tender size of TZS 354.9 billion.

The auctions attracted bids worth TZS 118.8 billion, which were all successful. The weighted average yield increased to an average of 6.11% from 5.60% in the preceding month.

Tanzania Treasury Bills Market Performance December 2021-2022

tanzania tourism statistics 2022

Auctions of long-dated government securities performed satisfactorily in December 2022.

The Bank of Tanzania auctioned 10- and 25-year Treasury bonds with a combined tender size of TZS 270.7 billion, which attracted bids worth TZS 378.5 billion, of which TZS 297.6 billion were successful.

The 10-year Treasury bond was undersubscribed whereas the 25-year Treasury bond was oversubscribed . Yields to maturity increased to 10.77% and 12.76% for 10- and 25-year Treasury bonds, respectively.

Government Revenues & Expenditures

In December 2022, domestic revenue collection amounted to TZS 3,090.4 billion, of which central government revenue was TZS 3,021.3 billion, equivalent to 106% of the target for the month .

Out of the central government collections, TZS 2,536.4 billion was tax revenue, 6.2% above the target for the month .

The good performance was largely associated with increased collections under the income tax category (including Corporate Income Tax and Pay As You Earn), owing to the continued recovery of economic activities and tax efforts.

Collections from local government authorities’ own sources amounted to TZS 69.1 billion whereas grants totaled TZS 197.9 billion.

Tanzania Central Government Revenues December 2021-2022

tanzania tourism statistics 2022

Tanzania Central Government Expenditure December 2021-2022

tanzania tourism statistics 2022

National and External Debt

National debt stock, comprising public debt—external and domestic—and private sector external debt recorded a monthly increase of USD 512.1 million to USD 40,122.8 million at the end of December 2022.

The increase was mainly on account of disbursements of external loans, which outweighed repayments. Out of the stock, USD 32,353.6 million was public debt.

External Debt

The stock of public and private sector external debt increased by USD 966.4 million to USD 29,049.1 million at the end of December 2022 from the level recorded end of November 2022.

The increase was largely due to disbursements from the World Bank . Debt service was USD 143.1 million, of which USD 103.1 million was principal repayment and the balance was interest payments.

Multilateral institutions continued to dominate the portfolio, accounting for 47% of the stock, followed by commercial creditors.

The structure of disbursed outstanding debt by economic activities showed that transport and telecommunications dominate holding 20.8%, followed by social welfare and education, and energy and mining.

The composition of external debt by currency remained unchanged, with US Dollar denominated loans accounting for 69.1%, followed by the Euro.

Domestic Debt

At the end of December 2022, the stock of domestic debt was TZS 25,567.9 billion, a decrease of TZS 1,044.6 billion from the amount recorded at the end of November 2022. The decrease was on account of the settlement of the overdraft facility.

Treasury bonds and stocks commanded the largest share , accounting for 81.8% of the debt stock, reflecting sustained investors’ preference for securities with longer maturities.

Pension funds and commercial banks remained dominant creditors, jointly holding 59.2% of total domestic debt.

External Sector Performance

The external sector of the economy continued to endure challenges of commodity prices, tight financial conditions, high inflation in trading partners, and supply-chain disruptions caused by the resurgence of COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine.

Consequently, the current account balance recorded a deficit of USD 5,347.2 million in 2022, wider than a deficit of USD 2,407.2 million in the previous year, mainly due to high import bills.

Accordingly, the overall balance of payments was a deficit of USD 995.1 million, compared with a surplus of USD 1,852.1 million in the previous year, driven by higher payments abroad.

The stock of foreign official reserves declined to USD 5,177.2 million at the end of December 2022 from USD 6,386 million in the similar period in 2021.

Nonetheless, the reserves remained adequate, covering 4.7 months of imports, in line with the country benchmark of not less than 4 months.

Exports of goods and services increased to USD 12,000.3 million in 2022 from USD 9,873.4 million in 2021, driven by non-traditional exports, particularly manufactured goods, and minerals ; and services receipts—mostly from tourism .

The increase in exports of manufactured goods largely emanated from fertilizers , textiles as well as iron and steel, owing to rising demand from neighboring countries, particularly the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Coal worth USD 160.4 million was exported in 2022 , higher than USD 13.2 million in 2021, largely on account of increasing demand for alternative sources of energy following the short supply of crude oil and natural gas amid the war in Ukraine.

Most of the coal was destined to neighboring countries including Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda; and other countries mostly Poland, Hong Kong, India, and Senegal.

Good performance was also observed in the export of diamonds , which also recorded a sharp increase to USD 62.7 million from USD 8.5 million in 2021, explained by the resumption of production at Williamson Mines following a period of closure for maintenance.

Gold exports, which accounted for 46.8% of goods exports, rebounded to USD 2,836.7 million from USD 2,743.1 million on account of a volume effect.

Exports of traditional goods also increased to USD 766.5 million in 2022 from USD 627.9 million in 2021, supported by cashew nuts, tobacco, cotton, and sisal.

As for cashew nuts and tobacco, the increase was on account of a volume effect, whereas for cotton it was due to the rise of prices in the global market.

On monthly basis, traditional exports rose to USD 140.1 million from USD 134.6 million in December 2021, whereas non-traditional exports increased to USD 486.1 million, from USD 465.2 million.

Tanzania Exports of Goods December 2020-2021-2022 (in Millions USD)

tanzania tourism statistics 2022

Services receipts amounted to USD 4,776.5 million in 2022, higher than USD 3,117.7 million in 2021 explained by the increase in travel and transport receipts.

Travel receipts almost doubled to USD 2,560.7 million from USD 1,310.3 million, consistent with the r ise in the number of tourist arrivals by 57.7% to 1,454,920 .

The level of tourist arrivals is approaching the pre-pandemic level of 1,527,230 in 2019, reflecting the recovery of the tourism sector.

On monthly basis, services receipts increased to USD 481.8 million in December 2022, from USD 339.4 million in the corresponding month in 2021.

Tanzania Services Receipts December 2020-2021-2022 (in Millions USD)

tanzania tourism statistics 2022

Imports of goods and services increased to USD 16,710.4 million in 2022-the highest level in recent years-from USD 11,610.4 million in 2021.

Almost all import categories recorded increases, reflecting the rise in prices owing to the disruption of the global supply chain.

Oil accounted for much of the import bill , at 23.3% from an average of 19.6% over the past five years.

Imports of machinery, industrial transport equipment, iron and steel, and plastics were also high, consistent with the revamping of economic activities.

On the contrary, edible oil imports declined following a decrease in volumes, partly emanating from the increase in prices.

On monthly basis, the import of goods edged up to USD 1,343.6 million in December 2022, from USD 1,032.1 million in December 2021.

Services payments increased to USD 2,465.4 million from USD 1,607.0 million in 2021, largely driven by higher freight payments consistent with the rise in the import bill.

On monthly basis, services payments amounted to USD 245.2 million, up from USD 165.1 million in December 2021.
