Moving towards their goal of having 150 hotels operating in Africa by 2025 Radisson Hotel Group Announced their first Victoria Falls Resort Hotel called Radisson Blu Resort Mosi-oa-Tunya that is going to be located on the banks of the Zambezi River in Livingstone City, Zambia.
Radisson Blu Resort Mosi-oa-Tunya’s construction was approved by ZEMA (Zambia Environmental Management Authority) after concerns that indicated the fact that part of the land that was offered for construction was within the “elephants corridor” and that it might lead to elephants abandoning their route.
Ramsay Rankoussi, Vice President Development, Africa & Turkey, Radisson Hotel Group said they have been operating in Zambia for many years and they recognize the potential of the country, so it was essential that they complement their presence in Zambia through offering a hotel in one of Africa’s most visited world heritage sites, the Victoria Falls.
Ramsay Rankoussi also added that Radisson Hotel Group was proud to have partnered with NAPSA (National Pension Scheme Authority) for the launch of the Radisson Blu Resort Mosi-oa-Tunya, as they further seeked to reinforce their collaborations in promoting tourism across Zambia.
NAPSA unveiled the construction of the hotel in Livingstone, Zambia’s tourism Capital. Radisson Blu Resort Mosi-oa-Tunya is going to be located in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, just 15 minutes away from the Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport and 4km from UNESCO world heritage site, the Victoria Falls.
