The Cultural Tourism Program nurtures cultural expressions



The basic purpose of the Cultural Tourism Program (CTP) which is supervised by the Tanzania Tourism Board (TTB) is to encourage tourists to enjoy the rich cultural heritage that Tanzania offers.

Tanzania is not only about Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and Zanzibar (to mention only a few of the stupendous attractions offered by Tanzania). Also on offer is the rich and varied cultural traditions of the more than 120 ethnic groups found in the country.

Butiama participates in the CTP through the Butiama Cultural Tourism Enterprise (BCTE). The people at BCTE, I included, always keep their ears and eyes open for new cultural groups that spring up within BCTE's area.

I recently saw one of these groups in practice, and BCTE expects they will also be performing for BCTE's visitors in the future.
