Stop Protea Hotels ruining the Zambezi

Protea Hotels are planning to build a huge and inappropriate modern hotel in a pristine wilderness area on the banks of the Zambezi in Zambia. This beautiful and important wilderness area is adjacent to Lower Zambezi National park and opposite the world famous Mana Pools National Park World Heritage Site. This proposal will destroy the area for wildlife, introducing thousands of tourists into a hugely important and fragile wild environment, and bringing noise and light pollution into a quiet wildlife area.

  • Geoff Watson cannot imagine the noise and blaze of lights across the river that would also destroy the peace and serenity of Mana

  • Joan Faiola I agree - a horrifying prospect that shows that nothing is sacred where profit is the motive.

  • Ron van der A Too much pressure on nature, not in line with the other lodges/hotels size
