Author

Nelson, Fred

Description

This paper reviews how community-based ecotourism in northern Tanzania has evolved and how it contributes to both conservation and rural development. Growing financial opportunities from tourism, institutional challenges relating to the control of natural resources, and variable local capacity for managing ecotourism ventures are three themes which illustrate both the potential of and the challenges to community-based ecotourism in Tanzania. Three case studies from villages in northern Tanzania are presented in this paper to illustrate these issues.
