If you’d have asked me 25 years ago to name my favourite coun­tries, Zim­babwe would have been right up there. We had no idea it was go­ing to fall from grace, and from travel wish­lists. So, it was heart­en­ing to read Mark Eveleigh’s re­port on the thriv­ing wildlife and warmth of the lo­cals (p86).

Places come and go in pop­u­lar­ity, whether through pol­i­tics, strife or sim­ply by be­com­ing fash­ion­able. But with over­tourism such a hot is­sue at the mo­ment, it is heart­en­ing that there are still ex­tra­or­di­nary places where you can es­cape the crowds; we re­veal some great lit­tle-vis­ited spots on page 24.

I was wowed my­self by a cor­ner of Ar­gentina this month – and a sight within it – that I knew noth­ing about (p62); and while Abu Dhabi isn’t ex­actly crowd-free, who’d have thought that it would be such a great wildlife des­ti­na­tion (p46).

Shhh... it’s a se­cret We hunt down those places that have fallen off vis­i­tors’ maps, in­clud­ing this sur­real cone in north-west Ar­gentina (p62)
