Despite having spent half of last season at Luton Town FC, where he helped them gain promotion into the topflight, Nakamba managed to invite his teammates at parent club Aston Villa to holiday in the resort town.

McGinn, who recently signed a four year extension at The Claret and Blue that will keep him there till 2027, is in the company of his wife Sara Stokes.

“Wasn’t on the bucket list but should’ve been. Unreal,” posted McGinn on Instagram.

The Scotland Captain shared images touring a game reserve in Victoria Falls with an elephant in site moments after images of his arrival went viral on Twitter.

“I am bringing in players from the EPL and as of now we are expecting some footballers to come and view the majestic Victoria Falls,”said Nakamba in a video posted by his Marvelous Nakamba Foundation.

Names of the other EPL stars Nakamba is expecting are yet to be shared.

“Imagine every Diasporan coming to Zimbabwe bringing along a tourist friend. It is a big score by Nakamba to have invited a footballer with an international resume to Zimbabwe. He has proved to be a good ambassador for tourism and the country,” said Information Ministry Permanent Secretary Nick Mangwana.

Nakamba, who was in the same tourist town last week is taking a rest ahead of the 2023/24 EPL season. Aston Villa are yet to decide his future, with Luton fans more than happy to have him back permanently after his stellar loan performance.
