Welcome to Zimbabwe Tourism Updates.

Carnival in Zimbabwe Featured

At least 23 African, Asian, European and South American countries will participate at the Harare International Carnival next month including Brazil, Malawi, the DRC, Egypt, Botswana, Nigeria and the UK. Several local groups comprising traditional, contemporary and corporate troupes will also be present.

 Tourism Minister noted that carnivals -- also known as street parties -- contributed immensely to economic growth. Tourism industry and hospitality related service industries will be the major beneficiaries from the projected influx of visitors attending this event. The manufacturing sector would also benefit by supplying various goods.

Zimbabwe Tourism Authority said carnivals had proven to be essential for destination marketing and tourism promotion. Carnivals have become sustainable marketing vehicles that harbour great potential to steer economic growth.

Last year 14 countries attended and between 600 000 to one million people attended the inaugural carnival. The figures  are expected to increase.

This year's carnival runs from May 16 to 26 under the theme "Celebrating our Diversity".
