Zambia has been listed among CNN’s international destinations that tourists planning vacations in 2021 should consider for their holiday travel. It is an important listing as CNN Travel remains a leading authority in providing guidance and recommendations on top and safe tourist destinations worldwide.
The new listing published April 22 is particularly significant in that travel remains restricted in light of the threat of COVID-19. It comes at a time that the West enters the peak holiday and travel season and travelers are considering international journeys in light of increased COVID-19 vaccinations.
CNN reported that despite 142million COVID-19 cases worldwide and the pandemic still far from over, “many of us are now itching to make plans to travel or to reunite with loved ones”.
In its curated list, CNN Travel omitted certain open countries “if they had very limited numbers of international travelers before the pandemic; have ongoing or recent armed conflicts, terrorism or rampant crime and unrest; or have entry requirements so extensive and complicated that they put the country out of reach of most travelers.”
The listing can be a boost for Zambia which has capacity to deal with COVID-19 testing requirements of the US government and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all travelers.
Zambia has managed to maintain relatively low COVID-19 cases and fatalities due to an a multisectoral response, led at the Presidential level.
