ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to explore the factors which hindered poverty

reduction among the communities adjacent to tourism attractions and suggest

measures to be taken to reduce poverty.

Semi-structured interview, focus group discussions and observation methods, were

employed to collect information from the respondents residing in Mang‘ula B,

Kanyenja and Mshikamano villages, in Kilombero district in Morogoro region. Data

collected were analysed qualitatively.

The study findings indicated that, majority of the villagers could see the benefits in

terms of improvement of the social services. These benefits include the supply of

fresh water and rehabilitation of schools and dispensary. However, findings have

shown that, the direct economic impact at the individual level was very low, apart

from that, villagers did not engage themselves in tourism activities as their source of

income due to a low level of education and awareness about advantages of tourism,

bureaucracy and limited financial resources.

The study concludes that, tourism attractions can improve the economy of individual

villagers lived adjacent to the tourism attractions if they are directly involved in

tourism activities.
