'The Real Africa' Goes on Display for Agents


Zambia Tourism Board's Stein Liyanda, managing director; Margaret Makungo, director North America; and Donald Pelekamoyo, marketing manager


The Zambia Tourism Board hosted a travel show last night in New York.  Officials from the tourism board and suppliers welcomed over 50 travel agents and tour operators who came to learn about selling the destination.

Promoting itself as “the real Africa,” Zambia is probably best know as home to Victoria Falls but travel agents will find much more to offer their clients including sailing on a houseboat on the great Zambezi River or experiencing a walking safari in South Luangwa and Kafue National Parks.  Visitors to Zambia can take full advantage of her lakes which provide an ideal place for canoe and fishing safaris.
