• Zambia's Tourism Potential
    The current earning from Zambia's tourism is 8% of
    the of the GDP. In 2010, there were 1,000,000 tourist
    in the country. The Ministry of tourism aims to
    increase this number to 4,000,000 by 2015. There is
    potential to increase this figure even further if
    the right policies are adopted.
  • Tourism Ambassadors
    The Ministry of Tourism in Zambia has introduced a
    scheme where it appoints "Tourism Ambassadors".
    The ambassadors are chosen from a group of
    Zambians in diaspora who are internationally known.
    This non-paying job involves the marketing of the
    country'stourism in their daily walks of lives.
  • Affordable Accommodation
    There has been an explosion of low cost
    accommaditionin Zambia in the last few years.
    However, most lodges, motels and B&B's are
    unlisted. There is need to develop a database
    of these so that they are easily accessible to
    tourists. A websitesimilar to www.hotels.com can
    be very useful for low budget tourists.
  • Activities for Back-Packers
    Extreme sports, white water rafting, bungy jumping
    would attract younger tourists. This coupled with
    low cost accommodation can be a great lure for low
    budget tourists.

It is not such a long time ago when we were all lamenting how far behind Zambia was falling compared to Botswana. The opinionated armchair critics dared to suggest their own half-baked remedies!

But the hard working Zambians simply got down to work, there was a nation to develop. And the fruits of their hard work are there for all to see. The growth from 2000 is simply unparalled by any of our nearest neighbours.
