Activists in Tanzania have criticised the planned luxury tennis-themed safari in the East African nation, accusing authorities of “sportswashing” the ongoing human rights violations against the indigenous people of Ngorongoro, including the Maasai.

Dubbed the Epic Tanzania Tour, the event is priced at US$24,990 per person for single occupancy, and it will be hosted by world-renowned tennis legends John and Patrick McEnroe. The eight-day expedition in December 2023 is marketed as a “truly extraordinary experience to explore Africa’s most iconic landscapes.”
