We have received some really good photos and information on the Cultural Festival held in Livingstone prior to the UNWTO and would like to share it with you. The festival was held at Livingstone Golf Club so that Livingstonians could have some fun too.

Here are some photos that were taken on the last day at Livingstone Golf Club:
The cultural groups are now performing around the town. I found them at Fallsway Lodge, Protea Hotel and Maramba Cultural Centre. I was also told that they had been seen at the Post Office in town. Here are some photos I took at Maramba Cultural Centre:
The groups will be performing throughout the UNWTO and everyone should go and have a look. Our Zambian talent is quite extraordinary.
I did not pay to go into Maramba Cultural Centre so I can only assume that all venues are free. I have looked at the programme for the delegates at the UNWTO and there is nothing there for us to enjoy – security is tight. I think, though, that I find it sad that all these ‘fringe’ activities like the cultural dancing were not advertised so that Livingstonians and our normal visitors could plan to see them… next time?
