  1. Macro-Economic issues? Macro? Not even Micro. Surely that is good news, yes, of course, then get realistic folks. With a shattered economy, great hotels, nil shortages for tourists, superb tourist attractions, etc. surely the tourist with strong forex in their pockets Flocking to Zimbabwe by the 747 load? The ZW$ should be attracting +20%? Certainly not a minus figure.

    Zambian tourism used to be two decades behind us. Few went to Zambia despite having part of Mosi-oa-Tunya, the Zambezi, Lake Kariba and Luangwa. Tourist would cross the Falls Bridge and find curio’s up to 80% cheaper than Zimbo’s were charging in the heyday!

    Another throwaway fantasy from the master under-achievers of hospitality, tourism and la-la land.
    Pray tell, what are the figures for the privately run game/safari operators? Better? Worse? The same?
