The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) has issued a full operator’s licence to Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT)-owned Kariba Guest House after the entity complied with all regulatory requirements.
CUT opened Kariba Guest House’s doors to its first customers in 2019 following the acquisition of the property a year earlier and has been operating on a provisional licence.
Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com, CUT Hotels Group general manager, Innocent Manyera, described the new development as a huge boost to CUT’s vision to be a market leader in the hospitality industry. Manyera said:
As CUT Hotels, we are really excited about getting fully licenced by ZTA, which by any measure is a huge endorsement on our brand that already prides in CUT Hotel and Orange Grove Motel. This new development spurs CUT Hotels on a trajectory to become a formidable brand in the tourism and hospitality business.
The 11 roomed self-catering lodge provides unlimited WiFi, and a refreshing swimming pool. Guests can also enjoy wildlife or game drives and boat cruises upon request.
Manyera, who is also Tourism Business Council of Zimbabwe (TBCZ) vice president, said in order to match its new status, the guest house now offers world-class luxury at very affordable rates.
