Zambia has re-opened the Victoria Falls to the public, nearly two months after closing the World Heritage Site due to the COVID-19.

Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu on Tuesday made the announcement to re-open the Victoria Falls after touring the site.

Lungu urged all visitors to follow health guidelines of wearing masks and practising social distancing.

The decision to re-open the Victoria Falls was based on the City of Livingstone not recording any cases of the disease, the president said.

The Victoria Falls has recorded the highest volumes of water in a decade, providing visitors with breathtaking beauty and splendour.

Zambezi River Authority, which monitors water in the falls, has predicted a rise in water levels until the end of May.

The re-opening of the Victoria Falls has pleased tour operators who have promised to strictly adhere to health guidelines proposed by the government.

Livingstone Tourism Association Chairperson Rodney Sikumba, who accompanied the president on the tour of the falls, said tour operators look forward to a slow but measured way onward for the tourism industry. Enditem
