Tanzania is the Africa of your imagination, a place where you can climb the continent’s tallest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, and see wildebeest thundering across the Serengeti during the Great Migration. The country offers a great variety of things to do, including descending over 600 metres (1,960 feet) into the Ngorongoro Crater in search of rhino and tracking chimpanzee in the Mahale Mountains.
Off the coast, the Mafia Islands have a rich local culture and offer palm-fringed stretches of powdery sand and azure waters perfect for activities such as kayaking and whale watching, or you could simply unwind under the sun.
