No show from govt at US expo

Staff Writer

ONLY three private firms and no government representatives are attending the prestigious Safari Club World Wide Hunting Expo being held in the United States.

Officials at the Zimba-bwe Professional Hun-ters and Guides Association confirmed that the companies that had gone to the expo were only marketing themselves.


The hunting expo is a “must participate” for tourism players interested in big game hunting.


In Zimbabwe big game hunting has taken a major dip following the issuing of various travel warnings by mostly European Union countries and the US government. The latter constituted the bulk of “big game hunters”.


The three firms that have managed to “represent Zimbabwe” are Senuko Lodge, Shangaan Hunters Africa and Zimbabwe Wildlife Safaris.


Environment and Tou-rism minister Francis Nhema was not available for comment this week to clarify why government could not send any representatives to the expo.
