Wild Horizons, the Victoria Falls-based tourism activity business of Tourvest’s Accommodation and Activities (TAA) division, has appointed Gary Archer as its new chief executive. Archer replaces co-founder Bruno De Leo who remains on the board as a non-executive director.
TAA chief executive Gary Elmes said Archer is more than a capable replacement with 25 years of travel and tourism experience under his belt. â€œGary moved to Victoria Falls in 1989 and began his career at the Victoria Falls Hotel. He later moved into the adventure tourism sector and has, over the years, worked in various senior positions for a number of respected companies, including more than 10 years at Wild Horizons where he has been responsible for various areas of the business, he said.
Created in 2004 through the incorporation of a number of established businesses in the Victoria Falls area, Wild Horizons is a major player in the SADC adventure tourism and activities circuit with a multi-faceted operation spanning Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, offering luxury lodge accommodation, transfer services and a host of activities.
