A couple embracing against the backdrop of the Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe ranks among the best countries to visit on Lonely Planet’s list. The ranking, compiling some of the most beautiful destinations in the world, had this to say:

A journey to Zimbabwe will take you through an attractive patchwork of landscapes, from high-veld, balancing boulders and flaming msasa trees, to laid-back towns, lush mountains and lifeblood rivers.

Here you can spot the Big Five (leopard, lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo) in its national parks, discover World Heritage–listed archaeological sites and stand in awe of one of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls.

We’re also super proud to see Zimbabwe ranked the highest of all African countries on National Geographic’s Cool List Of 2019. This is what the National Geographic had to say:

Victoria Falls and the surrounding area have always enjoyed the lion’s share of the attention, and for good reason.
As well as the beautiful falls themselves, the Zambezi flows through gorges and over rapids that are perfect for those after an adrenaline rush.

There’s plenty more to see if you head to the two primary wildlife hotspots: Hwange National Park and Mana Pools National Park. Don’t miss Gonarezhou National Park for amazing wildlife-viewing!

We couldn’t be more pleased that Zimbabwe topped ranking as one of the top countries to visit in Africa, and in the world.
