Victoria Falls hub in Zambia seeks hotel investors

Could Livingstone, Zambia attract new hotel investors? Zambia's deputy tourism minister Patrick Ngoma has put out a call for developers to invest in the area, which sees reliable traffic from people visiting Victoria Falls

Speaking at the recent opening of the $800,000 Chinese-owned Warm Harbor Hotel, Ngoma noted that the destination has not yet reached "acceptable levels of quality investments" in the hospitality sector, the Post Zambia is reporting. Livingstone district commissioner Omar Munsanje said that the area needs more accommodation options as a growing hub of both business and leisure travel.  

The surrounding areas of Livingstone already has several three- and four-star properties, including a Protea hotel by Marriott.
