Zimbabwe has been named among the 19 must-see destinations in the world in 2019 by the National Geographic Traveller in a report dubbed ‘The Cool List 2019′.
National Geographic ranked Zimbabwe number nine, the highest country in Africa. The country got the high ranking because of change of government in the country and is also noted how the departure of former President Robert Mugabe has yielded positive gains for the tourism sector under the “New Dispensation’ according to a Chronicle report.
