Zimbabwe will on Friday, September 27 join the rest of the world in commemorating World Tourism Day.
Matopos will host this year’s main celebrations with Maleme Rest Camp chosen as the venue.
In a statement, the Acting Minister of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Mangaliso Ndlovu said:
Matopo National Park is but one of the many tourist attractions in Matebeleland South Province, which also hosts Lumeme Falls near Mtshabezi Dam, Nsimbi Caves and other wildlife areas in public and private protected areas.
A lot of activities are lined up for the day, and this is again an opportunity for the industry and the public to interact and share ideas.
By taking the 2019 World Tourism Celebrations to Matebeleland South, our focus will be on how best to grow the tourism economy in that province.
As ‘Team Tourism’, we are rolling out initiatives designed to create jobs at the village, district and provincial levels and we call on all stakeholders to join us in this endeavour.
Zimbabwe is a full member of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).
