Ask the team: African safaris

We are six adults and would like to spend two weeks on an African safari (outside South Africa) and a beach holiday with good snorkelling. What would you suggest for the school summer holidays in 2018?

Chris Haslam replies Tanzania is the place: it’s pricier than Kenya, but it has dry-season game-spotting in the bush and clear waters for snorkelling from June to October, so it’s the right choice for the summer hols.

Start at the Lake Manze Camp, in the Selous Game Reserve, which is home to huge herds of giraffes. It’s old-school: 12 big safari tents with open-roofed bathrooms and a simple banda for evening get-togethers. The six of you will get your own vehicle.

Then fly 200 miles northwest…
