Tourist Arrivals Go Up Up!

Zambia National Tourist Board (ZNTB) is an organ of the government of Zambia charged with marketing tourism. It’s public relations officer, Mbo Kamanga, has confirmed the increase in tourist arrivals in Zambia. Preliminary figures indicate a 41 per cent increase during the first quarter of 2005. The “Visit Zambia 2005” marketing campaign is bearing fruit for Zambia safari.

ZNTB’s main responsibility is to market Zambia’s safaris and tourism, to register tourism enterprises, enforce standards in the industry and ensure compliance of the World Tourism Organisation (WTO) and Regional Tourism Organisation of Southern Africa (RETOSA).

But where are the tourists coming from? South Africa accounted for the highest at 31 per cent, followed by Zimbabwe, Britain, United States, Germany and Australia. But local tourists are hot in pursuit too. There is a general reawakening in local interest in safari destinations in Zambia.

106.4 per cent entered Zambia through Chirundu on the border with Zimbabwe. The border post at Kariba Dam (with Zimbabwe) recorded 26.4 per cent, Livingstone Airport (international visitors) 11.1 per cent, Katima Mulilo 10.3 per cent and Mfuwe Airport recorded a 7.3 per cent increase compared to the first quarter of 2004.

51,097 tourists visited Zambia in the first quarter of this year compared to 36,386 in the first quarter of 2004.

    Rainbow Rewards, a community based shopping rewards system and Step13, an organization that helps those with drug and alcohol dependency problems.

    As we approach the new year and New Years resolutions, some modern
    wisdom strikes home in the words of Yoda. "Do, or do not. There is no 'try'. "
    Yoda ('The Empire Strikes Back'). Whatever your personal feelings about the conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq, the troops serving there are our flesh and blood and our friends and neighbors. They deserve our reassurance that we ALL support those who are placing their lives at risk, whatever the politics of the time and place. To that end there are two excellent programs that let us "Do" for our absent fellow citizens. Either of these sites are great for a "good deed". Operation Uplink is a unique program that keeps military personnel and hospitalized veterans in touch with their families and loved ones by providing them with a free phone card. You can also go to
    USO Care Packages and send someone in the armed services some seasonal cheer. On the lighter side, don't miss
    In Vino, Veritas, , fun musings about
    wine and food or Old worn
    out saddles
    , the life and times of a Montana cowboy from the early
    1900's. Amazing people, our ancestors. For your business advancement, we've
    started a site that helps people who are interested in improving their

    Zambia is good for wildlife, but it'd be a shame to visit Africa without seeing the parks Tanzania has to offer!
