The Santonga entertainment and conservation park in Victoria Falls is due to open in 2017. The 80-hectare park, said to cost $18 million, will tell the story of Victoria Falls, not only through its wildlife, but also its rich history and culture.
A World Wildlife Fund report, published last year, found humanity had wiped out 52 per cent of the world’s wildlife in the last 40 years. A force for good, conservation education and research will be a key focus for the project.
The park will also tell the story of Victoria Falls from the very beginning, 4 billion years ago, through its history, people, plants and wildlife.
Santonga, is expected to be at least a six-hour experience, drawing 120,000 visitors annually.
