Starting tonight at 19:00hrs on BBC 2, Simon Reeve’s going to South Africa and on to Zanzibar – The first in a six-part series, Simon Reeve travels around the edge of the Indian Ocean in an epic and exotic journey that takes him from the paradise islands of the Maldives to the front line of the war against piracy and terror on the streets of Mogadishu.

This first leg takes him from the rugged coast of South Africa, where he joins the fight against wildlife poachers, through Mozambique, and on to the tropical island of Zanzibar. On the way, he swims with sharks, meets the refugees who have found shelter in a luxury beachfront hotel, and travels on a huge container ship fortified against the constant threat of pirates.

BBC 2 19:00 Tomorrow night Simon Reeve’s continues his journey Madagascar to the Seychelles……….

Simon visits the tropical Indian Ocean Islands of Madagascar, Mauritius and the Seychelles on the second leg of his journey. Amid the paradise of coral reefs and jungles full of spectacular wildlife, Simon witnesses some of the threats to the Ocean. Off the coast of Madagascar, he goes spear fishing with the Vezo people, whose lifestyle is at risk from their own population growth, and in Mauritius he sees the vast industrial tuna
trawlers unloading their catch. In the Seychelles, Simon meets an eccentric Englishman who is fighting back by turning his private paradise island into the world’s smallest national park – largely populated by giant tortoises who start their life in his bedroom
