EVERYONE FALLS FOR ZAMBIA
In June 2017, Kamageo launched the Zambia marketing Group - a private sector marketing initiative fully backed by Zambia Tourism Agency. This followed a highly successful UK roadshow sponsored by ZTA. On a limited budget, Kamageo strived to re-awaken interest in the destination for both travel professionals and the general public.

ZAMBIA ON ITV
Kicking off the second year of ZMG with a splash, on Monday 25th June Andi Peters appeared broadcasting live from Victoria Falls on Good Morning Britain. It was the beginning of a 2 week Zambia promotion that spanned across ITV's morning television. The coverage included footage from the Falls themselves, game drives in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, boat cruises and water activities on the Zambezi River as well as a visit to The Elephant Cafe, representing the country as the prime safari destination we already know it is.
Over the two weeks, this generated a massive £2,500,000 of media coverage for Zambia! Many of ITV crew also shared their Zambian experience on their own social media accounts, including Andi Peters, which in itself proved really valuable exposure for Zambia.
