Nc’wala attracts 10% discount for tourists

LUSAKA, ZAMBIA – Proflight Zambia is offering a 10 per cent discount on fares for travellers flying to Eastern Province to enjoy the Nc’wala Traditional Ceremony.

The airline is offering a fare reduction on return flights scheduled on its Lusaka-Mfuwe route for travellers heading to the ceremony between February 22 and March 1, 2023.

“In the spirit of unity with our Ngoni cousins, and in recognition of the important role of traditional ceremonies, we are pleased to announce a special 10 per cent discount for travellers flying to the upcoming Nc’wala Traditional Ceremony in Chipata, connecting via our Lusaka-Mfuwe route,” said Proflight Zambia Director Flight Operations Captain Josias Walubita.

“Proflight is excited to play a part to support and promote Zambian tourism and culture through providing a safe and reliable means of transport that is fast and convenient to travellers attending and participating in the activities at the ceremony,” he added.

The Nc’wala Traditional ceremony is a thanksgiving ceremony held by the Ngoni people every year at Mtenguleni village in Chipata District, Eastern Province of Zambia. This ceremony gives thanks for the first harvests of the season. Ngoni ancestors, who originated from old Zulu culture, have passed this ritual to current generations.

The ceremony this year is unique as the Paramount Chief Mpezeni celebrates the ritual having reigned for 40 years. People from all backgrounds will participate and attend the ceremony held on February 25, 2023, which is the last Saturday of the month.

The discount offer is valid on return flights only and travellers can book their flights through the airline’s website
