Japanese Film “Paradise” Supports Zambia Safari

Six Japanese filmmakers arrived in Livingstone to film a documentary on Zambia safari and tourism. Effectively the Japanese have joined the "Visit Zambia 2005" campaign.

Film producer and delegation leader Makoto Kawamura said his crew was making a film for a national-wide broadcast to the Japanese. The film will be called Marvellous View Paradise and will be aired on the biggest television network Tokyo Broadcasting Systems (TBS). The target: 15 million Japanese viewers during prime watching times.

Mr Kawamura said the programme would introduce some of the most beautiful sites from all over the world. And the Victoria Falls has been selected. As one of the world’s natural ‘beauties’ the waterfall will be introduced to the Japanese public through TBS Channel Six.

The Japanese film will include the five star Royal Livingstone Hotel because the world's celebrated Hollywood stars such as Nicole Kidman and Arnold Schwarzenegger stayed there.

In the movie, the Japanese actor Naomasa Musaka visits the Victoria Falls, enjoys the wonderful view, is fascinated by the Zambia safari as Africa's great nature and captivated by the pure mind of local people who are living with nature in their traditional way. Musaka also enjoys the gorgeous facilities, delicious cuisine of charming hotel and meets other travellers.

This 20 minutes footage on the film "Marvellous View Paradise" will include shots from around Livingstone and from both sides of the Victoria Falls. The film will also include some of the adventure activities offered by the southern Africa Adventure Centre.

Zambia National Tourist Board Livingstone services manager Jocelyn Mutinta said, "We are happy that bigger markets such the Japanese and the Chinese were opening up…for more tourists and investors..." in Zambia safari.
