Zimbabwe to set up Santonga Park


VICTORIA FALLS — One of the Seven Wonders of the World — Victoria Falls — is set to establish the world’s first bio-park — a state-of-the-art Santonga Park, which is expected to boost tourist arrivals in the country’s premier tourist resort.


Africa Albida Tourism (AAT) group operations manager Brian Gardiner told journalists in Victoria Falls last week that following years of planning and inspired architecture, the Santonga Park would soon materialise as his firm’s next major project.

Gardiner further said the multi-million dollar project will provide visitors with a fascinating insight into Zimbabwe’s wonder of the world and its ancient past.

“The project will be heightened by state-of-the-art audio-visual technology as an integral part of a highly interactive geo-historical, anthropological and wildlife experience,” Gardiner said.

“Santonga may well be acclaimed as the world’s first bio-park and will provide tourists and locals with a fascinating insight into Zimbabwe’s wonder of the world and its ancient past.”

According to Gardiner, the world’s best architects have already been consulted and are working on it to ensure construction commences soon.

“For the entire continent of Africa this is a landmark initiative that will be created adjacent to the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge estate, a spectacular setting,” Gardiner said.

“The formula is an outstanding fusion of an interactive multi-faceted wildlife, cultural and natural history, education, conversation and traditional entertainment all in one incredible park. Santonga aims to bring to life the history of Victoria Falls since the beginning of time.”

Gardiner added: “Last year’s peaceful elections did a huge impact in tourism investment and it was the best year ever comparing to other previous years.

“We recorded an increase of tourists from the United States of America, Australia, United Kingdom and Europe and we also had new markets such as Barbados, Trinidad and Bolivia, to name but just a few.”

Lodges operating under AAT chaired by businessman David Glynn, are the Victoria Falls Safari Lodges, Safari Club, Ngoma Safari Lodge, Lokuthula Lodges, The Boma, Makuwakuwa and Santonga.
