Zambezi Sun Hotel in Livingstone has rebranded to Avani Victoria Falls Resort with immediate effect.
The hotel has been rebranded alongside four other hotels in Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana and Namibia.
Minor Hotel Group (MHG), a hotel owner, operator, and investor, currently with a portfolio of 133 hotels and resorts in 22 countries across Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, South America, Africa and the Indian Ocean, rebranded the five hotels to its upscale Avani Brand.
Sun International Zambia general manager Emmanuelle Moneger announced the rebranding in Livingstone yesterday during a briefing at the convention centre for the new Avani Victoria Falls Resort.
She said there would be no job losses while new jobs were expected to be created following the move.
Zambia Tourism Board (ZTB) tourism promotion manager Jocelyn Mutinta said the rebranding would boost the marketing of Livingstone and Zambia’s tourism products abroad.
Sun International Zambia public relations manager Joyce Sikabbubba said the rebranding was a milestone to Zambia and asked citizens to look forward to more good things that were coming as a result of the change.
