Zimbabwe makes Lonely Planet’s list of the best countries to visit in 2019

In the category of top 10 countries, editors shine the spotlight on Sri Lanka, an island country that is “opening up to new travellers like never before.” Over the last few years, the country has awakened curiosity among the most intrepid of globetrotters for its 1,330km of coastline, beaches, wildlife, tea estates, and waterfalls. 

Closer to home, Zimbabwe also made the list, ranking at number three after Germany. “Not only is [Zimbabwe] 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,” reads the Lonely Planet website. 

Taking the number one spot in the best cities list is Copenhagen, Denmark, which editors call the “capital of cool” for being notably a design and gastronomic powerhouse. Shenzhen, China, and Novi Sad, Serbia, round out the top three.
