Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Acting Chief Executive Givemore Chidzidzi says his organisation has received with great excitement the news of the further relaxation of the Lockdown under the current Level 2.
Cabinet on Tuesday resolved the re-opening of Safari operators for local hunting only and restaurants to serve sit-in meals.
In an interview, Chidzidzi said the development is a great stride towards the opening of the tourism sector.
“The tourism industry is extremely excited about the development, which is a great stride towards opening of the tourism sector.
“We acknowledge the efforts by the authorities and indeed the nation to keep the spread of Covid-19 under check and thank the Almighty for his watchful eye over our nation.
“The development will stimulate domestic tourism activity as we anxiously expect regional and international traffic to be allowed. Our work is cut out for us as we have to ensure excellent service provision under the approved guidelines and strict protocols.
“The sector is ready and everyone cannot wait to start operating under the new conditions,” he said.
