Is Donald Trump next on the ‘touch down’ list in Zimbabwe?
In the past few weeks, Zimbabwe has been welcoming international tourists with high social profiling on them.
Zimbabwe hosting the international cricket qualifications, welcomed many players from competing countries such as Oman, the West Indies, Pakistan, Scotland, Netherlands, USA, Napal, UAE, Ireland & Sri Lanka, which ultimately translated into a touristic opportunity for the land logged Southern African nation.
John McGinn, the captain of Aston Villa Football Club and Scotland national team, also jetted in the country with his fiance, Sara Stroke after accepting the invitation from his teammate Marvelous Makamba.
The couple took an aerial helicopter ride called the Flight of Angels above Victoria Falls, which is known as Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke that Thunders) by locals.
They also went on a boat cruise and saw a pod of hippos and a crocodile basking in the sun. McGinn even tried dancing to mimic a performer from a local traditional group and jokingly said “they must have no hamstrings.” McGinn shared videos and photos on his Instagram page, describing the experience as “unbelievable”, he said.
He arrived at the Victoria Falls International Airport late Tuesday afternoon.
McGinn shared videos and photos on his Instagram page of the experience above the Seventh Wonder of the World in the Matabeleland North province of Zimbabwe.
Marvelous Nakamba said he is expecting the other Aston Villa players to come to Zimbabwe later on during the week.
Billionaire and owner of the Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd, sir Richard Branson is the latest international billionaire to also visit the country.
Zimbabweans are curious to know who is next to knock in their door steps. At least we know the boxing millionaire, Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. is also expected soon on a tour.
One might think that Donald Trump will be the next on the list, after the country’s president made an invitation to him years back. Maybe we will get a surprise soon. For now, Zimbabweans are busking in the great tourism ‘PR’ by these latest visits.
