Zimbabwe Tourism Authority lists key 2017 tourism and cultural events

The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority earlier today shared their present list of events for the year 2017 including milestones like the Sanganai / Hlanganani World Tourism Expo which is slotted in for the 08th to 10th of June this year in Bulawayo, aka City of the Kings.

Sources at ZTA have also pointed out that for some of the activities, which take place near the borders with Zambia, the UniVisa, aka KAZA Visa is available on arrival at Harare and Victoria Falls International airports at a cost of just 50 US Dollars. This common tourist Visa allows cross border visits into Zambia, should visitors so desire.

The same Visa also allows for national park visits across the border with Botswana, permitting tourists to make the most of their presence in Zimbabwe for any of the events listed below and therefore adding value to a safari holiday in this part of Southern Africa.
