From the time you start thinking about your next destination to the moment your feet hit the welcome mat back home, having the right travel apps on hand can make the whole experience smooth and exciting.
What would make the experience more worthwhile is to get an app you can access offline, an app that helps you to manoeuvre all around the most exciting places in Zimbabwe.
Fanuel Murove and Elisha Chitate have developed a new application called Accoleisure that can be used by domestic and international travellers visiting tourist destinations.
Speaking on what prompted the duo to create this app Fanuel Murove said that,“This application is mostly meant to promote domestic tourism in order to unlock the full potential of the industry. It can be downloaded on Google Play Store,” said Murove.
Chitate said they hope that their application promotes domestic tourism following sluggish performance of the domestic tourism market, owing to challenges like high product pricing and limited knowledge on affordable domestic packages.
