Zimbabwe arrests 'rude' French tourists

13 February 2013, 17:46

Harare - Zimbabwe police said on Wednesday they had briefly detained seven "extremely rude" French tourists in the resort town of Victoria Falls.

The group - aged between 55 and 66 - were detained for sneaking into a game park and refusing to stump up the $15 entry fee.

"They were extremely rude and they even tried to drive off from the police station, but we managed to arrest them," Jairos Chiona, police chief superintendant in Victoria Falls, told AFP.

"They refused to pay to watch game at Zambezi National Park," he said, adding that they were released after paying a $20 fine.

Chiona said the group used an illegal cross-border entry from Botswana and were apprehended by game rangers.

Victoria Falls is a popular tourist resort with the world renowned waterfall and several game parks which has the big five - elephants, lions, buffaloes, rhinoceros and leopard.
