Immerse yourself in the African wilderness of the coastal Saadani Gamme Reserve, breathtaking in its tranquillity. A short walk one way brings you to the beach, but head the other way and you are in the wilds. As well as seeing animals (eland, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe, oryx and perhaps the rare Roosevelt sable, and, on boat trips up-river, a glimpse of hippo, crocodile and plenty of birdlife), you might visit a local village and its school and experience everyday life. On organised adventure holidays you'll stay at a beach camp with thatched bungalows.
Head inland to the contrasting Mikumi National Park, with fantastic opportunities for spotting elephants, buffalo and large herds of antelope, and the dense rainforest at the foot of the Uluguru Mountains, home to Colobus monkeys, plus more elephants, buffalo, wildebeest, impala and other antelope.
Discover Zanzibar. Stone Town is a colourful mix of Africa and Islam, while the white sandy beaches, clear seas and coral reefs make the island perfect for relaxing family holidays.
