Tanzania tourism is set for a speed bump by the end of the month. Reason: Kempinski Hotels will cease management of Kilimanjaro Hotel Kempinski in the central business district of Dar es Salaam and Bilila Lodge Kempinski in Tanzania's wildlife park of the Serengeti.

From August 1, the two luxury properties will be operated as international luxury accommodation establishments under ASB Tanzania Limited, the partner company with Kempinski Hotels franchise.

Kempinski has four openings set for this year in the Middle East and Africa, including The Kempinski Hotel and Residences Palm Jumeirah in Dubai and Kempinski Resort Seychelles at Baie Lazare on Mahe Island.

Another project in Namibia will be the acquisition by Kempinski Hotels of the Midgard Country Estate, following the takeover of Kempinski Mokuti Lodge three years ago.

Kempinski Hotel City Center is scheduled to open in Manama, Bahrain, in September.
