Zimbabwe Makes it to Bloomberg’s 24 Best Travel Destinations for 2020

Zimbabwe has been listed as a great travel destination for 2020 by Bloomberg.

This is great news for the country given that Bloomberg is a publication read by many potential tourists, especially from Europe and America.

 It’s exciting to note that the article went beyond just selling Vic Falls as the ultimate destination and also promoted places like Mana Pools & Nyamatusi Camp.

The list of 24 destinations from around the world, includes other countries like Egypt, Jamaica, Mozambique & Bolivia.

Below is an excerpt of what the article said about Zimbabwe. 

 

Zimbabwe

It’s a wonder so many travellers never make it past Victoria Falls when some of Africa’s biggest concentrations of wildlife, most qualified guides, and best all-around values are just beyond its roaring depths.

Now that the Robert Mugabe era is over, though, Zimbabwe is a better bet—and laws that encourage hunting in next-door Botswana are driving some adventurers here instead.

An hour from the falls, you’ll find newly thriving packs of wild dogs in Mana Pools National Park, where Wilderness Safaris’ Chikwenya Camp has seven tents at the confluence of the Sapi and Zambezi rivers.

Nearby, the Nyamatusi Camp by the Zimbabwean-owned African Bush Camps team offers canoeing, walking safaris, and the chance to catch the famously ferocious tigerfish.

And with conservation work getting a boost from African Parks, the venerable nonprofit backed by the U.K.’s Prince Harry, the spotlight has never been brighter.

When to go: June to November, when the wildlife congregates along the Zambezi River near Mana Pools. Within those months, September is best, coming just before dry season peaks and making for relatively private but prime animal spotting.
When not to go: Most camps are closed during the green (rainy) season, from December to March.
Whom to call:Teresa Sullivan of Mango African Safaris

May this endorsement by an international publication also spur locals to want to explore their own country and boost local tourism.
Congratulations #DestinationZimbabwe!
