Epitomising the image of Africa, Tanzania has it all – mountains, beaches and islands with majestic views, national parks and game reserves so vast some are the size of small countries and with the most impressive natural event in the world of annual migrations. Nothing is as humbling as seeing the snow-peaked Mt Kilimanjaro when the sun rises. Nowhere are animals as visible as on the high plains of the Serengeti. To look down into the immense bowl of the Ngorongoro Crater is to stand at the gates of heaven itself. Moreover, relaxing in Zanzibar with its coral-sand beaches, barefoot beach lodges and opulent heritage is the ultimate holiday finale.

Ever wondered why Uganda is known as 'the Pearl of Africa'? Well, back in 1909, Sir Winston Churchill dubbed Uganda so because of its fantastic natural scenery and lavish mosaic of tribes and cultures. Uganda is literally, where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle.

Visitors fall in love with her breath-taking Rift Valley scenery, lush countryside and incredible biodiversity. They can track gorillas through misty mountains and chimpanzees through rainforest undergrowth, navigate tropical open savannah plains whilst on safaris to see the elephants, Big Cats and incredible 100s of species of birds, or just lie by the poolside overlooking the fabulous River Nile. Ugandans love to meet and greet new people – the country's crafts, dance and community tourism intrigue and delight the visitor. With new lodges, new activities and improved roads, why not visit the Republic of Uganda to view these marvels first-hand?

On the red dirt roads of southern Kenya, a few hours from Malindi, children chase and hail streams of four-wheel drives hauling tourists to and from Arabuko Sokoke National Park. Most of the children gather along the road shouting, surprisingly, in Italian, "ciao, ciao". Approaching Malindi's city centre, Italian espousal become even more conspicuous. Signs on a supermarket storefront and a few restaurants are in Italian, and Sambuca sits on every local barman's meagre top shelf. It is not exactly Florence, but there is a distinctly Italianate imprint on Malindi – the language, the food, the hotels and the casinos, and even the occasional fugitive from justice.
