A Macheke farmer, Mr Kamal Khalfan of Oman origin, who is also into wildlife management, says the past three months have brought a lot of hope for investment in Zimbabwe.
Mr Khalfan has more than 20 species of wild animals including two of the big five, the rhino and the buffalo and has promised to build state of the art facilities at the game park and make it one of the best tourist attractions in the country.
“The past three months have brought in a lot of hope to investors. So far I have hosted three delegations that are interested in tourism and agriculture. We just have to build confidence,” he said.
Mashonaland East Minister of State for Provincial Affairs, Cde David Musabayana toured the game park and concurred that it has the potential to become one of the biggest tourist attractions in the province.
“We are here to see how this place can contribute to the province’s branding exercise and am impressed with what is here,” he said.
Currently, the game park does not offer any commercial game touring services despite having a wide range of wild life.
There is also a state of the art accommodation facility which has its front floating in water, making it unique.
On the farming side, production is tilted towards tobacco and maize at a large scale.
