For all its criticisms, when a tourist site springs up, it requires a solid infrastructure, a wide-variety of services being rendered and a certain number of experiences made available to tourists. Inadvertently, local jobs are created, new opportunities for both and formal and informal labor engagements promoted. The development of the Arusha region, and the Serengeti National Park in particular has been rising exponentially, though at a lower rate than the tourist market demands. The recently announced investment made by the Tudor Investment Corporation in building a new airport has the potential to bring revenue, business and development to a region that is in dire need of it. Should the Tanzanian government take a direct interest in mediating local demands/resources with the desires and business goals of the investor, then this endevor might finally be the financial and social catalyst required for northern Tanzania to develop.
