Four African destinations have made it on to National Geographic Traveller’s Cool List for 2019.

These African Destinations Are Among the Coolest to See in 2019

As 2019 fast approaches, the experts are sorting their travel calendars. And along with exotic destinations, highly personalised custom-made itineraries continue to trend – with Zimbabwe, Eritrea, Uganda and South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province making the much anticipated National Geographic Traveler’s Cool list for 2019

Zimbabwe is listed 9th on the list, while Eritrea comes in at 12th. KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa is next at 13, and Uganda is listed in 16th position.

Of Zimbabwe, National Geographic says: “With Mugabe gone, Zimbabwe’s new president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, seems keen to invest in tourism. And while there’s been economic and political turbulence, the safety of tourists hasn’t come into question.” Attactions listed include Victoria Falls and the Zambezi National Park.

Eritrea is said to be “firmly back on the travel map… Having struck new peace agreements with neighbouring Ethiopia and Djibouti, this little-visited African country is opening up to adventurous travellers as well as those with an eye for architecture.”

KwaZulu-Natal is described as South Africa’s safari hotspot, while Uganda is noted for the opportunity to see mountain gorillas.
