DAR ES SALAAM – Chelsea football club owner, Roman Abramovich, is in Tanzania on a private visit that will include touring the country’s game reserves, a tourism official said on Thursday.

“Abramovich arrived Wednesday. He is scheduled to visit Serengeti National Park and might scale Mount Kilimanjaro,” Pascal Shelutete, spokesman of the Tanzania National Parks Authority

“Abramovich is essentially on a private visit, although he may have talks with some government officials during his stay,” Shelutete said, adding that his aides have declined to disclose for

how long he will be in the east African country.
