At least four hundred and sixteen (416) Indians visited Zambia for tourism purposes from January to December in the year 2017.


Zambia’s High Commissioner Judith Kapijimpanga says the highest number of tourists from India was in the month of May where seventy eight (78) tourists visited the country.


“The month of May is the pick period because it is the hottest period of the year in India and it is also the best time to watch the Victoria Falls in Zambia,” she said.


Mrs. Kapijimpanga said the lowest was in the month of February in which only seven (07) tourists visited the country because it was the coldest month of the year in which most Indians stay home enjoying the weather.


The High Commissioner praised Zambians for maintaining peace as it was a prerequisite for tourist inflows adding that tourists were an asset to the national treasury.


“I wish to thank Zambia Tourism Agency (ZTA) for facilitating the flow of tourism materials that provides insightful information about Zambia as a tourist destination of choice,” Mrs. Kapijimpanga said. 


The High Commissioner further said the mission published a 100 paged coffee table book about Zambia which had gone a long way in providing quality updated information about Zambia.


“We also made a presentation on tourism promotion in Singapore to the National Association of Tourism Agents of Singapore in an effort to reach out even to countries of extra accreditation,” she said.


Mrs. Kapijimpanga said the Mission also had 6 hours to showcase Zambian films during the Madras Film Festival in Chennai, South India.


She said the Mission further took part in the Jaipur night tourism festival in Rajasthan, India, with a view of getting insight in the promotion of night tourism.


“We also attended the Face of Beauty International in India in which a Zambian national Febby Mwandama took part,” Mrs. Kapijimpanga added.


Mrs. Kapijimpanga said Zambia remained the best destination for tourism because of peace adding that it had all the infrastructure such as reliable aviation services and five star hotels.


This was contained in a statement made available by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi India, Bangwe Naviley.
