Tanzania is hoping to woo international tourists into its borders by upping the number of tourists’ attractions in the country. This has seen the government focus on upgrading game reserves into fully fledged national parks. Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli is expected to kick start this ambitious plan with the commissioning of the Burigi-Chato National Park on Tuesday. The government is taking advantage of Chato Airport to open the North-East tourist circuit. The Park is situated close to Lake Victoria, on the border with Rwanda, and is surrounded by the Kagera River and Lake Burigi.
