“This year’s party on wheels keeps getting better as we launch a party bus that will journey from Lusaka, Zambia to Victoria Falls Zimbabwe this December for Africa’s biggest New Year’s Party – the Vic Falls Carnival, this is a huge step forward towards expanding not only domestic Zimbabwean and Zambian tourism but to build inter-country relations too,” said head of project, Stephanie Kapfunde.
The Zambian edition titled ‘The Zed Vic Falls Party Bus’ is hosted by Chansa Kapapula, founder of Zambian New Media brand, Afro Ginger.
Chansa whose background falls deeply within media has collaborated with notable organisations in various projects and events in Zambia.
“This collaboration breaks a new barrier all in the spirit of unity. We look forward to light heartedly settling the ancient old debate between Zambia and Zimbabwe on who has the better view of the Victoria falls,” stated Chansa. “The vision is for party participants from both sides of the falls to come together and end 2017 in grand style.”
The Zed Vic Falls Party Bus will have similarities to the already existing travelling experience from Harare to Vic Falls.
The Zimbabwean experience kicks off on December 28, while the Zambian version kicks off on the 29th. The countries will collide during their scheduled itineraries that include the #ZimVsZed Sunset ‘Booze’ Cruise as well as a combined tour of the Victoria Falls Rainforest.
The collaborators hope to use this event to not only build inter-country rapport but to also encourage safe and affordable domestic travel.
This year sees the second edition of the Vic Falls Party Bus following its successful pilot in 2016 – this year promises to be even bigger and better with the Vic Falls Carnival announcing a stellar line-up of Black Coffee, Mi Casa, Ammara Brown and Rubber Duc.
