DisneyWorld + Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls, I like


I figured my fellow Travelholics will appreciate this information.

Wouldnt it be grand if Zimbabwe truly explored this beautiful gift of nature? Not that we explore ours here in Nigeria, but what the heck, you see something laudable you just say it.


According to the BBC, Zimbabwe plans to build a "Disneyland in Africa" at the world famous Victoria Falls to boost tourism, a government minister has told the BBC.
The government would spend more than $300m (£193m) on the theme park, said Tourist Minister Walter Mzembi.
Zimbabwe is trying to rebuild its tourism industry after a decade of conflict and hyperinflation.
Zimbabwe is not leveraging the Victoria Falls enough, Mr Mzembi told the BBC on Tuesday, describing it as a "sleeping giant".
"It's a wake-up call for us...we must build a new tourism facility with an impact," he said.
"We think it should be modelled along the size and the kind of vision that is on Disneyland, including hotels, entertainment parks, restaurants, conferencing facilities. This is the vision and we need people who can run with it."
