IT’S #ZimvsZed This December as Zambia Joins Vic Falls Party Bus Movement
The Vic Falls Party Bus, the ultimate New Year’s party on wheels has an exciting announcement to make! The Vic Falls Party Bus, hosted by Zimbabwean start-up Enthuse Afrika through its online publication #ENTHUSE – expands the Vic Falls Party experience to Zambia this year. (#VFPB2017)
Head of the Project, Stephanie Kapfunde exclaimed, “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!”
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 organization in various projects and events in Zambia. Based in the Copperbelt in Northern Zambia, Chansa often travels across the country using her social media influence to investigate and commentate on Afrocentric and sub Saharan cultures and issues. This year sees the women led digital media companies Enthuse Afrika and Afro Ginger (Zambia) team up to bring the Vic Falls Party bus franchise to 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” she concluded.
The Zed Vic Falls Party Bus will have similarities to the already existing travelling experience from Harare to Vic Falls. Of course, the Zambian experience will host a party from Lusaka to Vic Falls Town for the much anticipated Vic falls Carnival too. The Zimbabwean experience kicks off on the 28th of December, 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. Both tickets are available online via registration with details on the Vic Falls Party Bus Facebook Page. Zed Vic Falls Party Tickets are going at K3500 with benefits such as the ultimate ride to and fro plus B&B Accommodation.
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 which received critical acclamation from its participants with the after movie garnering nearly 10,000 views on Facebook alone. 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. Certainly an experience not to be missed!
