Top 10 tips for Tanzania - by Lucien Millard, aged 8

1. You must remember to take your malaria pills every day - swallow them with a banana is the easiest way.

2. Just as we did at Longleat Safari Park in the UK, when we went on the Longleat Family African Safari we took a pair of binoculars to spot giraffes and even smaller animals.

3. It’s a good idea to remember to bring a torch because Africa can be very dark at night.

4. Don't be surprised if an elephant charges at you - but don't panic at any stage. Ask the driver to return to the road if necessary.

5.If you do not like the food you can just order a pancake - or some bread and butter.

6. In Zanzibar, you can buy great football shirts for either Tanzania or Zanzibar. We challenged some local children, who play barefoot, to a game. It was great. They were really good!

7. There is no need for a wet suit because the sea is so lovely and warm.

8. The beds are lovely and cosy and have lovely nets all around which keep you safe from mosquitos.

9 It’s a good idea to remember to take some US dollars because you can pay with them too.

10 The staff are really friendly. At night, they put some food out on a table and a bushbaby came to eat it! They look a bit like squirrels but actually they are monkeys.
