Tanzania: A cable car project to Kilimanjaro to attract tourists

Tanzania is planning to build a cable car facility on Mount Kilimanjaro to unlock its potential to attract tourists who cannot climb Africa’s highest mountain.

The Deputy Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Mary Masanja, said the project is on track and would begin soon.

Mount Kilimanjaro, a leading tourist destination, is about 5,895 meters above sea level, with roughly 50,000 climbers from across the world attempting to reach the mountain’s summit annually.
