Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) is another Partner due to its function of promoting tourism in the country including Sports Tourism. TTB offers the Organisers platforms to market and promote Serengeti Safari Marathon through a number of social media pages sharing, local and international tourism fairs and press conferences to mention few.

The funds collected from each runner will be directed to the project through a bank deposit and slip to be submitted to FZS for the project operations.
Fourth President of The United Republic of Tanzania was requested by Serengeti Safari Marathon on the 14 th November 2020 to become the Permanent Advisor of the event and he happily agreed. This request was made through the fact that he is the leading among the Presidents who promotes tourism in the country at all times.
