New regulations governing the allocation of Tanzanian hunting areas or "blocks" and their increased prices have been announced by the government. The new scheme will see the amount of blocks raised from 158 to 190, while the increased fees could bring the government a potential overall income of over $52 million a year, up from the current $20 million, constituting an increase of almost 38 per cent.

The news comes after years of debate over the reform of the hunting sector
