Tanzania offers a double whammy of seclusion – first in the wilderness of its game reserves, where you’ll be surrounded more animals than people – and then on its offshore islands, whose sands are tickled by the milky blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Zanzibar
is big on Swahili culture – with the winding alleyways of UNESCO-rate Stone Town and spice plantations to explore in between the beach time. Little Chole
Island, in the Mafia Island Marine Park, is even more tranquil; explore lush forests and traditional villages from your romantic treehouse base
, tucked amid the baobabs.
