Glamping in Victoria Falls Carl Joshua Ncube, Nelsy introduce concept



Carl Joshua Ncube

Carl Joshua Ncube and wife Nelsy have started their own tourism operation called Camp Feel Good.

The glamping business they have just launched is a glamorous way of camping and is a trend that is now popular around the world.

It entails having tourists to stay in tents that come with the modern conveniences of a hotel room like a bed, duvet, pillows and charging ports.

The comedian launched the camp in the Victoria Falls Rest Camp and Lodges during the December carnival period with a sold-out first edition.

Carl, who formerly ran the Zambezi House restaurant had been teasing about his new glamping business venture since last year and the last time we spoke to him he said it will be launching early 2019.

He said: “The Victoria Falls Rest Camp was the ideal place for the project of this nature as we’ve invested in infrastructures such as communal showers and toilets, security, electricity and lighting.

“This allows us to do a value-added service of providing campers with a great experience and also introduce new markets to camping.”

Besides the camping, the entrepreneurial couple offers campsite entertainment, meals and excursions as add-ons to their setup.

The couple recently moved into their own tent and daily share online their diary of tent life through a web series called Alternative Home Sweet Home which is sponsored by Victoria Falls Rest Camp.

Carl Joshua Ncube said since moving into Victoria Falls, he has really been displaying his abilities in the tourism sector, bringing some new ideas worth exploring if larger investments were available.

“The Camp Feel Good project also seeks to provide the domestic tourist with an affordable but exciting way to enjoy the resort that has often been described as being out of reach to the domestic market,” said Ncube.

“Our travels have afforded us the opportunity to see different forms of accommodation from container hotels to tented accommodation.”

Nelsy said the idea came from his various stays in tents during his Travel Vlogs.

“Carl has been known to record and document all his travels through his Carl’s Travel Vlogs and has stayed in tents in a number of these trips and so it’s not surprising that this is the idea he has pursued,” said Nelsy.

African Union’s Inclusion in G20: A Significant Acknowledgment of a Continent with 1 Billion Inhabitants




The world’s most powerful economies, the G20, have welcomed the African Union (AU) as a permanent member, recognising Africa’s more than 50 countries as important players on the global stage. US President Joe Biden and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi both expressed support for the AU’s permanent membership.

The AU has advocated for full membership for seven years and, until now, South Africa was the only African country in the G20. The AU represents a continent with a young population of 1.3 billion, which is set to double by 2050 and make up a quarter of the world’s population.

Africa’s 55 member states have long pushed for meaningful roles in global bodies, including the United Nations Security Council, and want reforms to the global financial system. The continent is increasingly attracting investment and political interest from global powers like China, Russia, Gulf nations, Turkey, Israel, and Iran. African leaders are challenging the framing of the continent as passive victim and want to be brokers instead.

They seek fairer treatment by financial institutions, delivery of rich countries’ long-promised $100 billion a year in climate financing for developing nations, and a global tax on fossil fuels. The AU’s full G20 membership will enable it to represent a continent that’s home to the world’s largest free trade area and abundant resources needed to combat climate change. The African continent has 60% of the world’s renewable energy assets and over 30% of the minerals key to renewable and low-carbon technologies.

African leaders want more industrial development closer to home to benefit their economies. Finding a common position among the AU’s member states, from economic powers to some of the world’s poorest nations, can be challenging, but Africa will need to speak with one voice to influence G20 decision-making. African leaders have shown their willingness to take collective action, as seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a high-profile G20 member, Africa’s demands will be harder to ignore.

Forging Strong Bonds: Iran and Zimbabwe Deepen Economic Ties in Raisi’s Africa Tour



Zimbabwe and Iran

On Thursday, Zimbabwe and Iran signed 12 memorandums of understanding to strengthen their bilateral ties during Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s visit to Africa. Raisi had previously visited Kenya and Uganda before meeting with Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa in Harare. Among the 12 MOUs is a plan to establish a tractor manufacturing plant in Zimbabwe with the help of an Iranian company and a local partner. The two countries also signed agreements for cooperation in energy, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and telecommunications, as well as research, science, and technology projects.

Mnangagwa expressed his appreciation for investments in several sectors of Zimbabwe’s economy to reporters after the signing ceremony. However, he did not disclose the amount of investment Zimbabwe is expecting from Iran. Raisi mentioned the economic challenges facing Iran and Zimbabwe due to U.S. sanctions but emphasised his country’s efforts to build closer economic ties.

According to Iran’s foreign ministry, trade with Africa is expected to exceed $2 billion this year, but there was no comparison to the previous year’s figures. This African visit is the first by an Iranian leader since 2013, following a visit to three Latin American countries in June, all of which are also affected by U.S. sanctions.
