The Iflix Victoria Falls Carnival has brought in a lot of excitement to the resort town and business opportunities to the tourism industry with room occupancy for the destination surging to over 90 percent.

Arguably the biggest New Year festival in Africa, the Iflix Victoria Falls Carnival is not just a platform to enjoy the performances by some of Africa’s finest performers, but a serious event with huge business opportunities for tourism players.

A representative of the organisers, Mr Emmanuel Tivatyi said the organising team is pleased with the economic activities being created each year due to the hosting of the carnival and is upbeat that many players will take full advantage of these opportunities.

Tour operators in the resort town said they are grateful to the organisers for the business that they continue to generate with the hosting of the annual carnival.

The current festive season has seen a significant surge in room occupancy level for the destination to over 92 percent, driven by increased arrivals with the majority of the bookings being made by the festival-goers.
