Abstract: This article briefly explores the development of tourism in Tanzania and then focuses primarily on relevant tourism policies adopted by the Tanzanian Government in order to grow the industry in a sustainable manner. Although these policies have been effective for a decade since their introduction, indications are that they are now falling short of expectations. A bureaucratic style of government as well as the apparent incompatibility of sustainable tourism policies and subsistence farming on communal-land, count among the main reasons for the possible collapse of the policies. With the main emphasis on economic gains, both environmental sustainability and socio cultural aspects have been assigned a much lower priority. The article explores the main problem areas that have emerged in recent years, and briefly looks at similar policies in other African countries for possible solutions
