There are 2 category of lenses one needs to differentiate when we talk about Zoom Lenses -

Zoom Lenses : Just opposite to Prime lenses, Zoom lenses offer the flexibility of changing the focal length as per distance of the subject from photographer. Like the kit lens which comes with DSLR cameras is 18-55mm which means that you can click wide shots as well as a little zoomed in shots at 55mm. Other zoom lenses are also available in different ranges - 18-200mm, 24-120mm etc. Nikon, Canon and other companies offer varied set of lenses in zoom category. 

Without going deep into other details, I would want to say one thing that Zoom lenses give lot of flexibility and probably best companion for travel, but because of the huge range one needs to be very careful while choosing right lens. It's mostly about finding reasonable quality zoom lens in your identified budget. 

Some examples :

Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 - A good lens for landscapes and travel
Nikon 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 - A versatile as it provides pretty good range. 


Telephoto Lenses : These are lenses which specialise in clicking distant subjects These are usually heavy and expensive. Wildlife photography is a classic example of genre which demands telephoto lenses. Some of the examples are Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8, Canon 100-400 3.4mm etc.
