A consortium of business entrepreneurs has injected in excess of $3 million towards the refurbishment of Bumi Hills Lodges in Mashonaland West Province in line with the current thrust to boost the competitiveness of local facilities on the international market.

The facility comes back to the market after almost a 12 month sabbatical to allow for the refurbishment of its structures.

It is an investment which management said will bring attention to the country’s tourism industry as evidenced by the enhanced enquiries and bookings by foreign tourists.

Lauded as one of the best facilities in the country and within the region, it is expected to once again bring back Mashonaland West Province within the radar of international markets as a viable destination, said the Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Cde Webster Shamu while addressing delegates who attended the reopening of the facility today (Friday).

Government is confident that this will feed into the broader vision to effectively market Brand Zimbabwe at international platforms.
