Thomas Itembe, 22, is one of four students on a six-week field attachment from the Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) to the Butiama Cultural Tourism Enterprise (BCTE).

He grew up at Mugumu in the Serengeti District and says he was fascinated by the tourism-related activities in Mugumu, the reason which propelled him to enrol in the Bachelor of Tourism program at Sokoine University. He has completed his first year.

He believes it is necessary to increase awareness among Tanzanians of the Cultural Tourism Program which is under the supervision of the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) because some visitors to the BCTE show reluctance to pay a fee to view BCTE's historical, cultural, and natural attractions.

He sees himself pursuing a graduate degree in Natural Resources Management and later working in a related field, most likely in natural resources conservation.

Why should anyone visit BCTE? He lists a few reasons, including visitors receiving in-depth information on Mwalimu Nyerere, as well as on the traditions and culture of the Zanaki ethnic group.
