Whether it’s the vast plains of the Serengeti, the snow-dusted peaks of Kilimanjaro or the dazzling white beaches of Zanzibar, Tanzania has so much to offer honeymooners. Despite all these draws, it remains authentic and low key.
The wildlife in Tanzania is incredible; the country is home to big game, flamingo-filled soda lakes and playful chimpanzee. The Ngorongoro Crater is like the Garden of Eden; a natural barrier encircling the wildlife that roams the crater floor, it affords amazing game viewing. Whilst here, toast your new life as a married couple during a picnic with a view.
During the winter months, the Great Migration passes through the southern Serengeti. Bed down at the Sanctuary Kusini, ideally placed to witness this natural spectacle. Watch the sunset from high up on a kopje, overlooking the vast plains as wildebeest and gazelle gather by their thousands.
Away from the more established parks, the ‘southern circuit’ parks of the Selous and Ruaha have created a rugged and untamed rival to the north. Here you can explore by vehicle boat, or – for the more adventurous – by foot.
Beyond its wildlife, Tanzania has an intriguing culture and several fascinating industries. Tanzanite jewellery is a big export, and we can arrange a visit to a jeweller if you would like to see how the precious stones are cut and transformed into the magnificent finished product.
The exotic island of Zanzibar is an ideal place to end your honeymoon, with a few days to relax and explore the rich history of the ‘spice island’. Stay at The Palms, a delightful beach hideaway adorned with silks and vibrant prints. In the day, recline on the white sands and be pampered in the spa. At night, visit the markets of Stone Town and dine on delicious Zanzibarian cuisine. For some quality time together, cootch on a private dhow cruise along the crystal-clear seas here.
Tanzania is gorgeous from mountain peak to crater floor, and a special place to spend a beach or twin-centre honeymoon. Take a moment to speak with our honeymoon specialists; they can help at every stage of your booking, and ensure you’re taking care of from the moment you touch down to the moment you’re homeward bound.
