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.
