The Zambia Tourism Agency (ZTA) opened its first tourism information office at a shopping mall. This is a significant development for ZTA’s domestic tourism outreach efforts to increase arrivals.
The tourist information center is a one-stop shop for information on all tourist attractions in the country. The other information that is obtainable from the EastPark office is information on Tourism Enterprise Licenses and the tourism levy.
In this vein, ZTA is encouraging all tourism operators to take advantage of the tourism office to avail their printed and electronic promotional materials for distribution to the public.
The office was officially opened by the Ministry of Tourism and Arts Permanent Secretary Dr Liya Mutale on 15th June, 2017. The Tourist Information Centre is located at the eastern side of Eastpark mall next to the Bed Shop.
This Milestone has been achieved with generous sponsorship of the Eastpark mall management who have waived rental fees in support of the promotion of domestic tourism.
The office will operate daily on weekdays from 09:00 to 17:00 hours and weekends from 09:00 to 13:00 hours.
