Tourism: a long way to go

The growth of the travel and tourism industry is encouraging, but there is still a long way to go, according to the President of the Hospitality Association of Zimbabwe, Tichaona Hwingwiri.

“We have a lot of ground to cover before we’ll see the number of international tourist arrivals of the 1990s,” he said.”There are still a lot of obstacles that impede our progress such as the state of our domestic air service.

Domestic tourism has been slow, particularly in areas such as the Eastern Highlands, Kariba, Great Zimbabwe and Bulawayo, but growth is steady in destinations such as Harare and Victoria Falls.” Hwingwiri said that his association was committed to working with other tourism partners to remove the obstacles that were affecting growth in the sector. “HAZ remains keen to work with other partners such as the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority , the Zimbabwe Council for Tourism and others in this regard,” he said.
