#ZATEX IN #LUSAKA TO BE FOLLOWED BY #LICAF IN #LIVINGSTONE
(Posted 15th February 2018)
The Zambia Tourism Agency is getting into high gear ahead of two major events being organized by them, The Zambia Travel Expo, aka ZATEX in Lusaka in April and then the Livingstone International Cultural and Arts Festival, in short LICAF which will take place in late May.
ZATEX, now an annual event, brings buyers from around the world to the Zambian capital to interact with a wide range of exhibitors, from Zambia and the wider region to promote travel to #SuperbZambia.
The three day event will once again be held at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre which proved to be a great venue during past editions of what has become Zambia’s showcase window to the world on her own soil.
Meanwhile will LICAF be held in May, taking place this year between the 24th and 26th of May in the city of Livingstone at the iconic Victoria Falls of the Zambezi river.
The festival is among the fastest growing in Africa making Livingstone an irresistible destination if a visitor wants to experience the thrill and hypnotizing power of African music and dance.73 Zambian tribes from all 10 provinces which make up Zambia will perform in one festival and all of it will be happening at a time of the year when the mighty Victoria Falls are at their thundering best dropping down more than 500 cubic meters of water every second.
And if the festival and the Victoria Falls were not compelling reason enough to visit Livingstone, the destination also offers some of Africa’s greatest adventure activities such as white water rafting, bungee jumping, wildlife safaris, helicopter rides, steam train rides, and many more.
LICAF started as a side event of the 20th Session of the UNWTO General Assembly (which Zambia and Zimbabwe co-hosted in August 2013) and thanks to the Zambia Tourism Board, LICAF is now an annual event that showcases the best of Zambia’s rich cultural heritage. It is also a platform for cultural exchange as regional and international groups join in the fun!
