The marine business is among numbers of enterprises owned and managed by Said Salim Bakhresa, one of Tanzanian’s most dynamic contemporary businessmen. While he thinks internationally Mr. Bakhresa retains a deep loyalty to his home of Zanzibar and his affection for the place in all its aspects makes easy to understand why tourism there is booming. It is not just the year-round reliable weather, the beaches, the history, architecture and culture. It is the people that are true in their hearts, says Mr. Bakhresa, “They are happy and it is a friendly and calm society.”

In its own right, Zanzibar is one of the world’s most exotic tourist destinations but when considered as a bonus to the mainland attractions which include some of the world’s finest game parks, Serengeti, the vast and spectacular stretches of Lake Victoria and the incomparable Mount Kilimanjaro, it is clear that Tanzania is a giant awakening in the international travel stakes.
