#3.7 School lesson: future tourism


Usangi. The village in the Pare Mountains. From here you can start the hike to the Kindoroko Mountain. This is also a school that is involved with culture tourism. All revenue from tourism goes directly to the children. You can also sleep at this school, it’s a school stay. Well. We’re going to contribute a little bit at this school… ..and explain the kids how tourism is changing… ..and how they can contribute to a more sustainable tourism industry. Lovely, lovely students. We’re here to talk about the corporate social responsibility… ..of Charlie’s Travels. First of all we need to preserve this planet… ..and we need to compensate our flying behaviour. Secondly, cultural authenticity is key. We want to prevent overtourism. So how do we do this? How? We create local partnerships… ..with guys like you. This school has a school stay. This will result in spread tourism income. Understood? Yes, mister teacher. Thank you, thank you. See you tomorrow. We’re hiking to the peak of the Pare Mountains. Kindoroko Mountain. We’re walking through the shambas, as you can see. Through the banana fields. I’m at the peak of the Pare Mountains… ..on Kindoroko Mountain. Below me, in the village, lies the school… ..where we just gave a guest lecture. Corporate social responsibility. And that’s not just a coincidence. The Pare Mountains are the perfect example of an area… ..that hasn’t been influenced by tourism at all. Nobody visits this area. Tanzanians don’t know about it, travellers don’t know about it. It’s fertile, it’s green… ..and you have these amazing views of the Kili, among other things… ..and Lake Jipe, which we will visit tomorrow. The water from the Pare Mountains that feeds Lake Jipe. Very refreshing after a hike. Good morning. Morning, how are you? Good, how are you? Fine, fine. Yeah, with this music… Couldn’t have done it like that. No. But this is really, really bad television. This is a fairly new mosque. The majority of the people in the Pare Mountains is christian. But there are also a lot of muslims around here… ..and they get along very well. And we’re now looking for some local beer… ..which seems strange, as we’re right next to a mosque. Check it out, the local brewery. Also busy on a Monday morning. He’s the owner of the bar. Ah, the owner of the bar. Mambo. Pole pole pole. Monday morning, and we’re having a beer. Behind me the Pare Mountains. We’ve driven down. And we’ve now arrived at the shores of Lake Jipe. Lake Jipe. Green, eh… It’s, eh, green. It’s definitely green. Here, on Lake Jipe… ..off the beaten track pur sang… ..we’re finishing up our lecture on corporate social responsibility. And as you know there’s such a thing as overtourism… ..and some areas around here are really being flooded with people. The scenery is being destroyed… ..and cultures are essentially being influenced in a negative way… ..because of all the tourists passing through. So it’s important to handle this sensitively… ..and spread trips across the country. And that’s how you also spread revenue… ..so the tourism pie is being shared with everyone. So off the beaten track isn’t just a nice experience. It’s also super sustainable. See you next time.
