Newest hit entitled “Africa’s heritage”, created to celebrate the African World Heritage Day! – Ngorongoro youths under the leadership of Dr Elgidius Ichumbaki (University of Dar Es Salaam).

Our results show that Maun village has communal cultural values that can complement the gateway tourism image. This work provides a model for other nature-tourism gateway communities who wish to salvage and safeguard the…
