Tanzania has been voted ‘Africa’s leading Destination in 2021′ according to the just released World Travel Awards (WTA) results for the year 2021.
Apparently, the country has been nominated in the ‘Africa’s leading Destination’ category since 2008, but this year 2021, Tanzania finally managed to win this highly coveted continental tourism title.
From this year’s WTA voting results, Tanzania managed to beat 54 other countries on the continent, including the top tourism giants like Egypt, Kenya, Ethiopia, Botswana and South Africa.
It also happens to be a “Triple victory,” for the country, because Zanzibar Island has again been voted ‘Africa’s leading Beach Destination in 2021.’
The Hotel Verde on the Island (known as Azam Luxury Resort and Spa), has on the other hand grabbed the ‘Africa’s leading Green Hotel 2021,’ award.
And, as expected, Serengeti has once again won the 2021 ‘Africa’s leading National Park,’ title in this year’s World Travel Awards. This Tanzania’s thrid largest Park is famous for its annual wildebeests migration.
Serengeti wins Africa’s leading National Park for the third time in a row.
Still within the National Park, the ‘Four Seasons Safari Lodge’ of Serengeti, has managed to win ‘Africa’s leading Luxury Lodge 2021,’ title at the WTA.
But there is another victory for Tanzania this year, it comes in form of the rather exclusive ‘Thanda Island’ in Mafia, which has won the ‘Africa’s Leading Luxury Island’ award 2021.
Thanda Island has not only won the continent’s top position but also emerged the top Global WTA destination having been declared ‘World Leading Exclusive Private Island in 2021.’
There is another win for yet another Island in the country, for instance, the Chapwani Private Island of Zanzibar, which has again been named ‘Africa’s leading Private Island 2021,’ winning the title for the second year in a row, the first time being in 2020.
