TOURISM MASTERPLAN UNVEILED – UGANDA SAFARI NEWS:
Tourism in Uganda is currently the lucrative sector generating highest returns in terms of country’s exports. Due to multitude of safari products like gorilla trekking, chimpanzee trekking and wildlife safaris, many travellers have decided to plan safaris to Uganda.
However, for tourism to flourish at any destination there must be a clear guideline in form of a plan that can guide developments to harmonize the aspects of economic, environmental and socio-cultural impacts of tourism. Thus, it is upon this back ground that Uganda has always worked hard in drafting the ten year master plan to direct her tourism industry developments to ensure the satisfaction of those that undertake safaris in Uganda while maximizing the returns from the sector to the local economy.
Hon. Maria Mutagamba, the Minister for Tourism Wildlife and Antiquities unveiled the next 10 year master plan (2014 – 2015) which is centered at addressing the aspects of Marketing, developing potential tourist resources and human resource development so as to realize greater returns from the Uganda safari undertakers.
The tourism planners and developers at Meso and Micro levels are called upon to draft policies and Budgets that are in line with the Macro master plan. This is to ensure consistency at all levels which will in turn ensure balanced tourism growth and ultimate memories for those on safari in Uganda. The coordination among the tourism stake holders is considered as a pivotal aspect for the realization of these set targets among which include increasing safaris to Uganda.
