Ecotourism in Tanzania is best defined as low-impact form of tourism that supports conservation of natural resources, preserves local culture, and provides economic benefits to the communities. Natural Resource conservation comes in many forms like Wildlife conservation, anti-poaching and forest protection etc
For Tour Operators we call it Responsible travel which includes providing guiding services to visit nature beauty attractions, going to places without crowd of tourists, using local guides and supporting local communities. Travel Company should use energy which does not destroy nature like most Eco Lodges uses solar power and prohibits uses of charcoal or firewood.
Ecotourism to preserve local culture is like to make cultural tourism to less privileged communities like Bushmen and Maasai villages. Income accrued helps Hadzabe in Lake Eyasi and Masai tribe to send their children to school, to get clean water and health services.
For Tourists, they should benefit by visiting beauty natural wonders, find these travel places intact without environment destruction. These holiday goers enjoy the tourist attractions, see much wildlife in their natural habitat, while being responsible to protect environment. Tourists should take only photos, avoid taking animal or plants from nature. Things tourists should observe for environment conservation are all trash/waste to be put on dustbin, do not feed animals or throw away food waste in the parks. Food waste can destroy game park ecosystem because some food waste contain seeds which can grow. If exotic plants grow in Tanzania wildlife parks, it can interfere indigenous plants or interbreed without plans of National Park authority.
