Dear Athletes,

We have some exciting news to announce:

A record 89 Africa Albida Tourism hospitality staff will step out in the Victoria Falls Marathon on July 7 to raise awareness on the plight of vultures.

Africa Albida Tourism (AAT) chief executive Ross Kennedy said the runners would wear t-shirts highlighting the plight of the vultures, which are vital to the ecosystem, but endangered due to mostly human created issues, such as poisoning and electrocution by power lines.

“Part of AAT’s corporate social responsibility programme is the Vulture Culture Experience, a supplementary feeding programme which aids the survival of these remarkable raptors,” Kennedy said. “The Vulture Culture Experience occurs daily in front of our flagship property, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge,” he said.

The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge water table, located in the estate grounds close to Lokuthula Lodges, will feature Insizwa drummers, singers and dancers, a shower to cool runners down, as well as water, freshly cut bananas and salted oranges.
