Cultural tours are a relatively new product in Tanzania that is mostly sold as an add-on to enrich main safari tour programs. Most cultural tour sites in mainland Tanzania were developed by the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) in conjunction with the Netherlands Development Organization (SNV), starting with selected villages around Arusha in northern Tanzania and spreading out into northeastern Tanzania in Usambara and Pare mountains, and lately including southern Tanzania area around Mbeya. These are traditionally existing villages which will provide visitors with a glimpse of the authentic lifestyle of the many tribes in rural Tanzania.
Besides enriching itineraries for visitors, the cultural tours are generating income directly to the local communities that are visited. By visiting the cultural sites the guests would be giving support to community health, water projects, primary education and many other projects carried out at village level including reforestation and protection of environment.
