Zimbabwe’s Tourism Authority head of Digital Marketing Mr Godfrey Koti confirmed the visit of Hilton describing it as a huge endorsement of Zimbabwe as a safe destination.
“It is obviously something very exciting to get such a huge endorsement. This can only be a testament that destination Zimbabwe is a safe place. Remember Victoria falls has reached herd immunity and that is something that cannot be done in vain. We would like to thank the Government for pushing it through the Ministry of Health and Child Care, making sure that people are vaccinated. It really builds up confidence in the market and on the international market in particular. Mr Koti said tourism was one of the hardest hits sectors by the pandemic adding that they were delighted by visits by such high profile people. We are very elated as the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority to see Ms Paris Hilton here in Zimbabwe,”
