At the 22 Cabinet Meeting held in Harare on the 30th of June, it was resolved that the Zimbabwe tourism and hospitality sector is slowly reopening.
“In the tourism and hospitality sector, requests for variations of Operating Conditions in respect of Restaurant Operators and to re-open Safari Operators for local hunting only and National Parks were granted. Restaurants will now be allowed to serve sit-in meals,” Zimbabwe Tourism Authority wrote in their press statement.
Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Acting Chief Executive says his organisation has received with great excitement the news of the further relaxations of the Lockdown under the current level 2.
“The tourism industry is extremely excited about the development, which is a great stride towards opening of the tourism sector. We acknowledge the efforts by the authorities and indeed thd nation to keep the spread of COVID-19 under check and thank the Almighty for his watchful eye over our nation”.
“The development will stimulate domestic tourism activity as we anxiously expect regional and international traffic to be allowed. Our work is cut out for us as we have to ensure excellent service provision under the approved guidelines and strict protocols.”
“The sector is ready and everyone cannot wait to start operating under the new conditions.”
