The Tanzanian Cultural Tourism Programme (CTP) - a programme where local people organize and run small tourism projects, the income being used for community projects - is well developed in the Arusha region. It is well worth visiting one or two alongside your safari, to get a real feel for both the cultural and natural history of this fascinating part of Tanzania.
