The mayor of London's father travelled to the African country
Environmentalist Stanley Johnson has told people who are intending to take a solo holiday to Tanzania to go for it, as it is "delightful".
The author - who is also the father of London mayor Boris Johnson - travelled to Tanzania and wrote about his solo holiday on the Trip Ideas travel website.
Although it was not the primary reason for the trip, Mr Johnson had limitless praise for the African country's wildlife.
"That first afternoon in the rainforest we must have seen at least 20 black-and-white colobus monkeys, with their extraordinary long capes of white hair and flowing white tails, leaping from tree to tree," he said
"The same number of blue monkeys was also evident as well as a chameleon and a variety of sunbirds."
Stanley Johnson, a former Conservative Member of the European Parliament, has written widely on environmental issues and has also written around eight novels.
