10 Travel Zambia November 2009 David Shepherd and his wife Avril with President Rupiah Banda Nkani >> News · views · people · places · conservation · community · wildlife · culture VIEW FROM THE TOP In May the President met artist and conservationist David Shepherd CBE, who was in Zambia to raise funds and support for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. Among other things, the two men discussed the progress of the DSWF elephant orphanage project in Kafue National Park - to which the President gave his whole- hearted support. Shepherd explained that the long- term goal of the project is also to provide park protection and training to assist the Zambia Wildlife Authority in its efforts to secure Zambia's rich wildlife heritage for future generations. " I am tremendously encouraged by the President's warmth and enthusiasm for conservation," he said. " And it gives me great hope for the future of the project." Meanwhile Anna and Steve Tolan of Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust were also delighted to meet Mr Banda and discuss their work in South Luangwa. Two days later they were honoured by a fl ying visit from the fi rst Lady, Mrs Thandiwe Banda, together with The Honourable Minister of Tourism, Catherine Namugala, who swept in by helicopter to see for themselves why this remarkable centre deep in the bush is proving such an asset to the local community.

So many people abroad do not know enough about Zambia and its attractions. We are addressing the lack of knowledge in the world about Zambia and trying to create more world- class tourist facilities. We are going to streamline our ( border) formalities because we need tourists more than they need us. We'd rather have you spend your money inside the country than spend it on fees at the border. We welcome tourists for their ability to create networking for our people in Zambia. Tourism is a way to open up a country that can bring big benefi ts. We are committed to protecting our wildlife in the game parks, and when we fi nd people poaching, they are punished. In Zambia we want opportunities for Zambians and also for foreign investors. There are many parks with almost no facilities and that has to change if we want to get more tourists to visit. From an interview by eTN's Prof. Dr. Wolfgang H. Thome for Executive Talk.
