Now the USAID Supports Zambia Safari

For Zambia safari its fun time and support time again. The Visit Zambia in 2005 campaign is still growing. Just a couple of days ago the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) gave a donation to Zambian safaris. This important donation of vehicles, computers and office equipment was made to the Zambia National Tourist Board (ZNTB). This is a government regulatory board that markets Zambia’s safaris and tourism. It also provides a guide with maps and information about travel and lodging.

The Livingstone Events Organisation (LEO), the Livingstone Tourism Association (LTA), the Zambia National Tourist Board (ZNTB), the National Heritage Conservation Commission (NHCC), are front runners in spearheading the Visit Zambia campaign.

What’s all this "Visit Zambia 2005"? Zambia will this year commemorate a few important events. And these events are uniquely found here and are Africa’s best kept secrets in tourism.

  1. The centenary celebration of Livingstone town established 100 years ago in April of 1905.
  2. Another centenary celebration of the Victoria Falls Bridge built close to the awesome wonder of the world, the Victoria Falls. The construction of the bridge was completed in April 1905. That’s 100 years ago.
  3. The centenary celebration of the establishment for the Seventh Day Adventist church in Zambia in April of 1905. Again 100 years ago.
  4. The 100 years birth day remembrance of the peace maker and writer the late Secretary General of the United Nations Organisation, Dag Hammerskjeold, who died in a plane crash at Ndola, Zambia on September 18, 1961 while travelling to Congo to negotiate peace during that country’s civil war.
  5. and finally in November this year Zambia will celebrate the 150 years since the famous Scottish explorer, missionary and medical doctor David Livingstone "discovered" the mystic, mighty Victoria Falls. He named it after Queen Victoria of England. This was on November 16, 1855. Dr David Livingstone’s grand children and great grand children will participate in this memorial celebration

So it’s a celebration of a few centenaries and 150 years! What a combination. Very rare and only found here in Zambia, Africa’s best kept secret.
