On safaris in the Serengeti, scaling the heights of Mt Kilimanjaro or sunning on the exotic spice islands of Zanzibar…Yes, Tanzania, the heart of East Africa is both tourist paradise and tourist-spotting paradise.

Forget the wildebeest, Tanzania is where it’s at to witness hordes of khaki-clad could-have-been commandoes in camouflage peering out of clean white Land Cruisers. Look! A lion, going in for the kill, and dragging its fresh carcass under your bus!

Stone Town, Zanzibar: Birthplace to Freddie Mercury, home of a barbaric slave trade, and, thanks to direct flights from Italy and elsewhere in Europe, a magnet for the multi-coloured multitudes.
