Zimbabwe eyes tourism revival

After a lean spell, visitor numbers are on the rise, lifting economic hopes.

Zimbabweans are hoping a steady return of tourists will help jolt its economy towards recovery.

With the Victoria Falls as one of its major attractions, the country had 1.4 visitors in 1999.

But numbers took a plunge in 2000 following unrest related to the land-redistribution policy implemented by President Robert Mugabe.

Now they are slowly bouncing back, but the country still has a long way to go to become a major tourist destination again.
