Profile: Susan Daudi

Susan Daudi is the fourth of the students in the Bachelor of Science Program of the University of Sokoine on her field attachment to the Butiama Cultural Tourism Enterprise (BCTE). She has completed her studies and will graduate soon.

With her other three colleagues, she is currently working as a tour guide until the end of September 2011.

Ever since she went on a school trip to the Mikumi National Park while studying in secondary school in Morogoro, she has remained interested in tourism and wildlife.

She observes that for most Tanzanians only a visit to a national park to view wildlife is considered tourism. Cultural tourism as a concept has yet to catch on among Tanzanians. “There are some visitors who arrive here and do not even understand why they are here,” she says.

She sees herself as following a career in tourism and perhaps with additional training she believes she might even identify a cultural tourism attraction and launch a Cultural Tourism Enterprise following the guidelines of the Tanzania Cultural Tourism program.

Why should anyone visit Butiama? It is easily accessible, she says. “For example, now that the new district headquarters will be at Kiabakari, it is possible for someone visiting the district to also visit Butiama.”
