Heh, heh. Catalina was a valid answer but not necessarily correct.

What looks like a Bedford fire truck in the fire station plus a Land Rover nearby, so maybe somewhere in Africa?

Excuse another pigboat, but it really was the best of the boats.
But of course.

The airplane is CF-JJG belonging to Kenting. Dar-es-Salaam?

It is JJG (but not Kenting when I flew it) 43 years past. Not Tanzania, nor SA, nor Zambia.

Well, definitions of 'warm' being relative around here, Keith, I'd say you were freezing cold! Stick to the dark continent.

Taking you literally, could it be Kasane? [Never been there.]

By the way, it's definitely not Lungi (Freetown).

Not Sierra Leone; you've overshot, somewhat!

Normally a tranquil trading/university city, it later was the opening scene of tumultuous events which commenced a few weeks after the photo was taken late in 1965.

Entebbe? Good try, but no.
