Zimbabwe: Vic Falls to Anchor Proposed Tourism Hub
Johannesburg, South Africa — President Mnangagwa has directed Tourism and Hospitality Industry Minister Prisca Mupfumira to lead the process in setting up a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) for tourism, a project that will see Hwange, Victoria Falls and Kariba transform into a hub of tourism on the entire continent.
Addressing tourism industry players from various countries at the end of Meetings Africa - a gathering that showcases Africa's diverse offering of tourism services and products - here yesterday, Minister Mupfumira said her ministry had already placed "expression of interest adverts" in local media and online platforms.
She said the entire Hwange-Victoria Falls-Kariba belt would be turned into a "virtual city", with world class artificial beaches, hotels and conference centres, among a host of other business opportunities.
Minister Mupfumira said the SEZ will have a bias towards conventional, medical and sporting tourism.
