Protea Hotels and Zambia Safari

The works for the multi-million dollar Protea Hotel in Livingstone is 70 percent complete. Andrew Burton project manager for Veros Enterprises has announced. The hotel complex will house a shopping mall with 17 shops, a restaurant and a fuel service station.

Burton said the shopping mall and car park would be ready by June next year while the hotel would follow later. “...upon completion the complex will provide Livingstone the tourist capital of Zambia with a variety of services and goods that are presently not in the city,” he said.

In the recent times Livingstone has seen a lot of construction. The tourist city is pulling in its share of investments, the latest being Chrismar Hotel which is currently being thatch-roofed. It’s located very close to the Musi-oa-Tunya National Park. The park though small is popular for being close to the Victoria Falls which is locally known as “Mosi-Oa-Tunya” and translates to ”the smoke that thunders”.

Another Protea Hotel is under construction at Lusaka’s Arcades shopping complex. The “visit Zambia” campaign is in top gear. So all and sundry are investing everywhere. Lusaka and Livingstone are taking the lead. But Siavonga on the Kariba lakeshore is not left too far behind.

Don’t miss out,’s getting “warm and worthwhile in Zambia.”
