Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, who is better known in Tanzania as the owner of the popular English Premier league Club Chelsea, is in the country for a visit. No wonder that his arrival on Wednesday has stirred the north of the country, which is home to some of the best tourist attractions in the world. During his 10-day tour, Mr. Abramovich will attempt to scale Mount Kilimanjaro.
Roman Abramovich is one of the wealthiest people in the world. During his stay, the international spotlight will certainly be on Tanzania, and that’s good news for tourism, reports The Citizen.
The owner of Chelsea FC arrived with six friends and staff on his private Boeing 767 before embarking on the gruelling ascent. Although Onsea House was fully booked for accommodation at the time of booking, the entourage of Roman Abramovich chose Onsea House to cater the dinner on the night before the ascent and during the climb.
