One of the world's most popular Travel Guides, Lonely Planet, has published its "Best in Travel 2019" which lists the "Top 10 Countries primed to capture travellers' imaginations in 2019.

Zimbabwe features at No 3 on the list, behind Sri Lanka and Germany!

Here's what Lonely Planet says:-

While it may be known for making the headlines for all the wrong reasons, Zimbabwe has always been a country that travellers on the ground have raved about. Not only is it one of Africa’s safest destinations, it’s one blessed with ultra-friendly locals, Big Five-filled national parks, World Heritage-listed archaeological ruins, forested mountains and, of course, the mighty Victoria Falls. Although the controversial 2018 election may have dampened the unbridled optimism following the end of Robert Mugabe’s time in power, the sense of hope for what the country can become remains strong in Zimbabweans. And as always, a visit here is viewed by locals as a sign of support of them on their journey to a new dawn.
