Resort hotels in Victoria Falls, Kariba, Nyanga and Vumba recorded occupancies above 90 percent during the just ended festive season, with business slowing down thereafter.

Hospitality Association of Zimbabwe President Mr Innocent Manyera however noted that pricey meals and related products are a major put-off for local holidaymakers, most of whom have low disposable incomes.
He further urged that the country’s marketing arm, Zimbabwe Tourism Authority should be funded to do as many initiatives as possible to boost arrivals.

Manyera also urged all Zimbabwe tour operators to continue promoting domestic tourism and make local tourists ambassadors to foreign travelers.
