We are based in the Mwitongo enclave in the village of Butiama, the birthplace and burial location of Tanzania’s founding president, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere (1922 – 1999).

Mwalimu Nyerere’s historical legacy, a rich cultural heritage, and the proximity to Tanzania’s world-renowned wildlife parks places Butiama among the premiere locations for beginning your Tanzanian visit.

Butiama Cultural Tourism Enterprise (BCTE) is part of a network of cultural tourism enterprises supervised by the Tanzania Tourism Board, and working under the guidelines of the Cultural Tourism Programme of Tanzania’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism.
