HOW MUSIC CAN PROMOTE DOMESTIC TOURISM
Since the inauguration of the ‘Leka Dutigite’ song by famous musicians from Kigoma ( Kigoma All Stars), Gombe National Park has been receiving many local tourists from the neighboring regions of Geita , Mwanza and Shinyanga. However, more inquiries asking on how to get to Gombe have been received.
Inauguration of ‘Leka dutigite’ song was sponsored by the Member of Parliament for Kigoma North Constituency in collaboration with TANAPA.
